Center for Modern Surgery

about us


The Center for Modern Surgery is an independent outpatient surgical facility – also known as an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) – providing multi-specialty care for patients needing general, urological, gynecological, pain management, and other surgeries. The Center for Modern Surgery is fully licensed and certified with state-of-the-art equipment to protect each patient’s health and well-being, and was designed with the safety, comfort, and privacy of each patient in mind.

Our medical staff is trained in the most advanced aspects of laparoscopic surgery. They are caring, sensitive, and concerned about patients’ well-being, and they are dedicated to making every experience a positive one. Patients’ comfort and safety are top priorities for the Center for Modern Surgery team, and we strive to provide superior surgical outcomes and outstanding medical care, at all times.

The highly advanced surgical techniques used at our surgery center allow patients to recover sooner, in the comfort of their homes. For long-distance travelers, out of town patients and patients whose families reside out of state, there are several local hotels we would be happy to recommend.

Changing our patients’ lives for the better is our top priority.

Benefits of Having Surgery at Our ASC

The Center for Modern Surgery is independent from hospitals and offers safety advantages that, during this pandemic, are more important than ever.

Maximum Safeguards Against COVID-19

The Center for Modern Surgery does not treat patients with COVID-19, and our same-day discharge model quickly gets you back to the safety of your home. Our smaller footprint is easier to keep clean and sterilized, and fewer people enter our facility at any given time.

We follow the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, state departments of health and leading medical associations. Our many safety measures include:

  • State-mandated COVID testing, as required, prior to the surgical procedure. Should a patient test positive, the surgery will be rescheduled, and the patient must self-quarantine as per CDC guidelines.
  • Screening of staff members for cold- or flu-like symptoms. They are also asked to stay home if they are sick.
  • Screening of patients upon arrival. They will be asked to reschedule if they have symptoms.
  • Enforcement of 6-foot social distancing and wearing of face masks.
  • Personal protective equipment for medical staff.

Faster Scheduling of Your Procedure

COVID-19 has caused many hospitals to significantly postpone elective surgeries. Delaying treatment often results in worsening of symptoms, potential complications and the need for more invasive surgery. You can bypass the hospital backlog and have your procedure much faster at The Center for Modern Surgery, where streamlined processes and efficiencies allow us to make your health and safety the priority.

Billing & Finances

The Center for Modern Surgery understands that insurance, billing and financial matters can be complex, which is why our team of professionals is here to help. We are committed to providing you with the information and resources needed to understand your bill, the CMS financial policy and how we work with your insurance.

Here are some important billing considerations to review prior to your procedure.

Some services associated with your treatment may be performed by providers on an out-of-network basis. CMS fees cover the use of the facility only and do not include fees for the surgeon, anesthesiologist, anatomical pathologist, or services such as intraoperative monitoring and durable medical supplies.

  • Charges for these and possibly other services will be billed separately by these providers.*
  • On the day of surgery, you will be responsible for any copayments and/or deductibles associated with your service providers.

Therefore, you should inquire separately with your physician’s office and associated providers to find out which insurance plans they participate with as a preferred/in-network provider or as an out-of-network provider. Once you and your surgeon have determined the best course of action for your treatment, you may be able to work with them to adjust which services, diagnostics and planned procedures they will use based on your expected insurance coverage.

Please note that CMS’s billing office staff members are always available to help you:

  • As a courtesy, we will obtain prior authorization if necessary and bill your primary insurance on your behalf. Please bring a copy of your insurance card and ID on the day of surgery. If you have more than one insurance carrier, please also bring any necessary secondary billing information.
  • Or, if you have questions about your bill and what is covered by insurance, please contact the CMS billing department at 240-669-3134.
  • If you anticipate needing any special financial arrangements, the CMS billing department can explain your options.

Please contact your insurance provider if you have additional questions regarding your out-of-pocket costs.
