All applications for privileges at the Surgery Center of Reno are reviewed and approved by our medical executive committee and governing body. No application fees or reappointment fees are required. All surgeons are required to have completed pertinent proctoring and have admitting privileges at Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center or provide a written agreement with a physician who has such privileges. All physicians and ancillary health personnel who assist or scrub in the operating room must also apply for privileges. With prior approval, residents and medical students may observe in the operating room, but may not scrub or assist.
We are conveniently located in downtown Reno, very close by two major hospitals. In the event that our patient needs a higher level of care, we can quickly and efficiently transfer our patient.
