Professional, Compassionate Care

For a wide range of clients who are in need of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures, imaging services, lithotripsy services and pain management treatments, Surgical Specialty Center of Baton Rouge offers specialized, patient-centered care with superior outcomes in a cost effective, efficient and convenient setting.

Providing Care and Services That Are Patient-Focused

Surgical Services

With eight operating suites and two minor procedure rooms equipped with physician-preferred technology including a DaVinci robot, our physicians, technicians and nurses have the tools needed to provide the best patient outcomes. We want our patients to have the most comfortable and pleasant experience possible, which is why we provide private pre-operative rooms and overnight patients are offered spacious, private patient suites.

Inpatient Services

Dedication to patients and their families is the focus at Surgical Specialty Center of Baton Rouge and through an innovative hospital design, patients and their families stay informed and comfortable during their stay. Our spacious, private patient suites are designed for care, comfort and safety. A sofa bed for overnight visitors is provided in every room, and family members are allowed 24-hour access to the patient.

Imaging Services

Our radiology department is one of the most advanced in the area due to the digital capabilities providing patients with a higher level of diagnostic testing. We offer CT and XRAY services. Our radiologists are board-certified and specialize in musculoskeletal, pediatrics and neuroradiology. Referring physicians are able to view patient images and reports via PACS, providing them with the most technologically advanced tools for quicker diagnosis.

Lithotripsy Services

Lithotripsy is a service that is beneficial to those with kidney stones in order to break up stones in the kidney, bladder, ureters or gallbladder. The shockwaves focus on the kidney stone in order to break it into tiny pieces, allowing them to naturally pass through the body. Lithotripsy may eliminate the patient’s need to undergo surgery, resulting in less discomfort and complications, no hospital stay, lower cost and a shorter recovery period.

Pharmacy

Patients can enjoy the convenience of picking up prescriptions on site rather than having to travel to their local pharmacy.

Total Joint Program

SSC performs total joint replacement and revisions for knees, hips, and shoulders. Started by BROC Orthopaedic surgeon Robert Easton, there are now 10 Orthopaedic surgeons in the program. It is one of the most successful service lines with excellent satisfaction survey results. With a national average infection rate of 2-4%, our total infection rate of 0.6% is well below the national average. A dedicated Total Joint Coordinator educates patients on what to expect in preop, intraoperative and postoperative, and post-hospital discharge.

Have a Question?

In compliance with federal law, SSCBR provides a list of standard charges for hospital services (the “Fee Schedule”). The Fee Schedule does not represent the actual amount paid by any governmental or commercial insurance providers, nor does it represent that actual amount for which a patient may be responsible. Each patient’s financial responsibility may vary. The actual amount a patient pays is based on many factors, including health insurance, benefit plans, other applicable discounts, and the services provided based on the patient’s individual needs.

To obtain the most accurate estimate of patient out of pocket costs, it strongly recommended that patients contact their insurer to request an estimate or SSCBR's Admission's Department at (225) 408-5661. To obtain the most accurate estimate possible, the patient’s insurance information, if any, as well as a specific description of the service requested, preferably a physician’s order, are necessary.

We also advise patients to consult, as applicable, with his or her health insurer to confirm individual payment responsibilities and remaining deductible balances.

Although estimates are available through SSCBR for most scheduled services, the nature of healthcare, including the factors described above, dictates that the appropriate level of care, and thus the patient’s cost of that care, frequently cannot be accurately determined until the care has actually been provided.

The actual cost for which the insurance and/or patient may be responsible are often, although not always, significantly less than the total charges posted to a patient’s account, and thus, estimating payer cost or patient responsibility using a fee schedule alone will not produce an accurate estimate.

By Accessing This Fee Schedule, You Are Acknowledging The Following: 

I have read and am aware of the above information, the contextual limitations of the SSCBR Fee Schedules and recognize that the SSCBR Fee Schedules cannot be used as a single source for determining actual cost to any payer, including insurers, employers, or patient out-of-pocket responsibility, and if such single service determination is attempted, the information will be out-of-context and therefore, incomplete and inaccurate. I understand that the list of charges reflects the standard charges for services provided at SSCBR. I understand that the Fee Schedule includes hospital services only and does not contain professional fees for any physicians or other medical practitioners, lab charges, diagnostic services or other related costs that are not included as hospital services. I understand that the prices on the Fee Schedule are the prices of hospital charges and do not necessarily represent the amount my insurance company will pay or what I will owe.

If I am a non-patient, third-party, I acknowledge that I have read and am aware of the above information, the contextual limitations of the SSCBR Fee Schedules, and recognize that the SSCBR Fee Schedules cannot be used as a single source for determining actual cost to any payer, including insurers, employers, or patient out-of-pocket responsibility, and if such single service determination is attempted, the information will be out-of-context and therefore, incomplete and inaccurate. I further acknowledge that if I or my organization republish, post online, or otherwise re-communicate this information to another party and hold-out these fee schedules to the sole determining factor in establishing payer cost or patient out-of-pocket responsibility, without providing the contextual limitations described above, I risk misleading the consumers of such information due to the limitations detailed in this disclaimer. If my or my organization’s intent is to aid a payer or patient in determining actual payer cost or patient out-of-pocket responsibility, I acknowledge that this intent is most accurately and effectively achieved by recommending that such individuals contact their insurer or SSCBR's Admissions Department at (225) 408-5661.

THIS SITE AND THE FEE SCHEDULE IS STRICTLY AN ESTIMATE OF CHARGES AND SSCBR CANNOT GUARANTEE THE ESTIMATES BECAUSE SERVICES RENDERED TO EACH PATIENT AND THEIR COST MAY VARY BECAUSE OF TREATMENT DECISIONS, UNFORESEEN COMPLICATION, ADDITIONAL TESTS OR SERVICES ORDERED BY YOUR PHYSICIAN, AND THE INDIVIDUAL NEEDS OF EACH PATIENT. THIS SITE AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE FEE SCHEDULE IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT AN OFFER OR REPRESENTATION OF THE PROVISION OF MEDICAL SERVICES.
