About ASCs?


The Capitola Surgery Center (CSC) was founded by a group of local surgeons and is affiliated with the Monterey Peninsula Surgery Centers which was Monterey County‚Äôs first Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC), and has been providing quality care since 1982.  We are a premier option for outpatient surgical needs with more effective medications, shorter recovery times, and exceptional patient outcomes. We provide a wide variety of minimally invasive procedures. Studies show that having surgery in an ASC such as Capitola Surgery Center is just as safe as a hospital, with much lower infection rates. In addition, fees are generally 40-60% less than those of your local hospital, providing better care with a tremendous cost savings to our patients.


The Capitola Surgery Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and certified by Medicare. Because of our specialization and expertise in minimally invasive surgeries at our 5 facilities, we annually perform more cases than any hospital the county. We provide our surgeons with the most state-of-the-art operating suites, and are rapidly making outpatient surgery much more preferable to inpatient surgery.


If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, the Capitola Surgery Center can help. Our minimally invasive surgeons apply advanced medical technology to conditions requiring surgery. The result is increased a quality patient satisfaction. We are committed to doing everything to make your surgery experience as pleasant and worry-free as possible. Thank you again for your interest in the Capitola Surgery Center.
