About Salt Creek Surgery Center
With advancements in technology, many surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis, which often means shorter recovery times and less stress. Salt Creek Surgery Center (SCSC) was built to provide you and your family with the most personal attention and innovative surgical care from consultation to procedure and recovery.
Technology and training are at the forefront of care at SCSC. Physicians and staff continuously receive training on new state-of-the-art technology and the latest advanced procedures in order to provide you with the best options for your surgical needs in this multi-specialty outpatient facility.
The surgical center staff is outstanding and strives to ensure your experience is excellent. Our surgeons have impeccable credentials and unparalleled expertise and work alongside the highest caliber anesthesiologists. The nursing staff at the surgical center is genuine, caring and highly knowledgeable in their field; to provide you assurance that you are in well-qualified hands. Plus, all licensed clinical staff in the pre-operative and post-operative units are certified in advanced cardiovascular life support for adults and children, keeping your safety in focus at all times.
Children also receive extra special "For Kids Only" attention at SCSC. We take the time to build their trust and put them at ease. Children are given a ride to the operating room in a little red wagon. And unlike a hospital setting, parents are permitted to remain by their child's side up to and right after their procedure.
Patient safety is always a top priority. We hope your experience will exceed your expectations – as it has for so many of our patients. This is reflected in our patient satisfaction score; ongoing patient satisfaction surveys indicate that a remarkable 99% of patients would return to SCSC if they were to ever need surgery again.

Outpatient Total Joint Replacement
SCSC is one of the first ambulatory surgery centers in Illinois to offer robotic-arm assisted total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements with Stryker’s Mako System. This highly advanced robotic technology transforms the way joint replacement surgery is performed, enabling surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy.
With outpatient joint replacement, patients are allowed to go home the same day. Patients can recover at home, instead of overnight in a hospital.
