Who We Are
Minnesota Valley Surgery Center was founded in 2006 by a dedicated group of area physicians, looking for a better way to serve their patients. Since our ambulatory surgery center (ASC) opened its doors the mission has been to provide specialized surgical procedures in a high-quality, patient-focused environment that was both comforting and accommodating.
Our mission today remains the same: higher-quality patient care. Our specialized surgeons remain focused on providing the best for our patients on every level. Minnesota Valley Surgery Center is a 25,486 square foot facility with a much higher patient to nurse ratio than most clinics. You will benefit from our advanced medical technologies and specialized surgeons. Our highly qualified nursing and technical staff will do everything to ensure you have everything you need throughout your procedure.
We offer private recovery rooms for you and your family. Our goal is to put you at ease during your visit. Most procedures are performed by your own physician adding comfort and assurance to your experience.
Our physicians, nurses, technicians and administrators are dedicated to success outcomes. Every position at our facility continues education in their fields to provide the best care possible.
Our award-winning facility partners with experienced, specialized physicians focused on high-quality care. We have performed tens of thousands of successful procedures and remain one of the top outpatient surgery centers in the country.
Outpatient surgery, also known as ambulatory surgery or same-day surgery is a procedure that does not require an overnight hospital stay.

No. Because anesthesia is required for surgeries, we cannot let anyone drive themselves home following a procedure. We ask that you arrange for a family member or close friend to drive you to and from the facility on the day of your appointment. You also need a responsible adult to stay with you for 24 hours after receiving anesthesia.
Our fees cover the use of the facility only. Facility fees do not include laboratory, pathology, surgeon, anesthesiologist or certified nurse anesthetist fees, nor does it include the cost of any implants used for your surgery. You will be billed separately for these fees.
Anesthetics are administered by contracted anesthesia providers, which include anesthesiologists and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA).

Before surgery, you and your anesthesia provider will sit down to discuss your medical history and review the anesthesia plan; this is when you’ll be able to voice all of your questions and concerns.
