At Minor & James Surgical Specialists, we are fortunate to have our own fully-staffed, on-site surgery center. Our surgical environment truly provides our patients with the ultimate in convenience, comfort and care.
The Minor & James Surgery Center in Seattle was established because most of the procedures we offer our patients do not require overnight hospitalization. We are able to provide each patient with a highly-qualified, personalized surgical team to monitor their procedure and recovery, while saving them the time and money generally associated with a hospital stay. Patients can enjoy the convenience and privacy of our surgery center location, and family members and friends are free to visit with the patient up until the time their procedure begins.
The Minor & James Surgery Center is conveniently located in Seattle Suite 130 of the First Hill Medical Building. It is Medicare-certified, a member of both the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASC Association) and the Washington Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (WASCA), and licensed by the Washington State Department of Health.
Safety is our primary concern. Our patients are cared for in a compassionate, considerate and confidential manner by a professional staff comprised of expertly-trained surgeons, nurses, and anesthesiologists. Our anesthesiologists are hospital-based and associated with Physicians Anesthesia Services (PAS). We offer a variety of anesthesia options including general anesthesia, monitored sedation and local anesthetic. Our recovery room features up-to-date monitoring equipment, and more nurses than patients, assuring that each patient receives expert and individual care.
Our surgical rooms are thoroughly-equipped and technically-advanced operating facilities, with the latest in Laser, liposuction and endoscopic equipment, meeting or exceeding the standards of area hospitals.
