The UF Health Florida Surgical Center (FSC) is an outpatient surgical facility located at the corner of SW 34th Street and Hull Road behind UF Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and Movement Disorders Center Institute. This facility includes 10 preoperative bays, 8 operating room suites, 5 regional anesthesia procedure areas, and 10 PACU bays. The patient population generally excludes patients less than 13 years of age and/or with an ASA classification of IV.
We provide excellent perioperative care in a fully equipped setting for a growing outpatient surgical practice with the following surgical specialties: Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, General Surgery, Ophthalmology, Plastics, ENT, Oral Maxillofacial & Dental, Vascular, Gynecology, Chronic Pain, and even Neurosurgery.
In Spring 2016, we anticipate the opening of the new UF Health Children’s Surgery Center (17,500 square feet), which will be located directly adjacent and connected to the FSC comprising 7 preoperative bays, 4 operating room suites, and 14 PACU bays.
Anesthesiology residents will have the opportunity to rotate in a more fast-paced operating room environment for a 1-month rotation during the CA-1 year, and an additional elective month during the CA-2 or CA-3 year. This site also serves as a location for an elective 2-week rotation in Acute Pain Medicine.
Most of the anesthetic techniques performed here include local anesthesia with monitored anesthesia care (MAC), upper and lower extremity peripheral nerve blocks (including home-based perineural catheters), and general anesthesia with supraglottic airway, while utilizing more short-acting, rapid-elimination sedatives, opioids, and volatile anesthetics.
