Mount Nittany Health Surgical Center offers a full range of elective outpatient surgical services performed by a skilled team of surgeons and healthcare professionals dedicated to providing exceptional, patient-focused care.
As a leader in progressive same-day surgical services, the Surgical Center continually enhances its facilities and services to provide the latest advancements in same-day surgery to the communities we serve. Our modern Surgical Center is equipped with today's most sophisticated surgical technology, allowing physicians to provide the most progressive services and surgical procedures.
The surgical center offers outpatient surgical services in the following specialties:
Anesthesiology services include general, regional and local anesthesia. Provided by board-certified anesthesiologists at the Surgical Center, anesthesia prevents the patient from feeling pain during procedures or surgery.
Plastic and reconstructive surgeons specialize in restoring or reconstructing the human body. From burns and injuries to congenital birth defects, reconstructive surgery can restore function and confidence for those afflicted with a disfiguring disease or injury.
Cosmetic surgery is also for those seeking to improve their appearance. We offer a number of aesthetic procedures and surgeries, including injectables, body contouring, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation and facial rejuvenations.
The Surgical Center is home to some of the country's premier ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists. Our world-class team of ear, nose and throat surgeons provides the most advanced treatments and procedures to help our patients achieve their best possible health.
Services include advanced tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy procedures, bilateral myringotomy tubes (BMT), InstaTrak® and endoscopic sinus surgeries, nasal fractures and more.
Additionally, the Surgical Center now offers a new surgical technology: Balloon Sinusplasty™. This procedure allows the sinuses to be opened by placing a small, flexible balloon into the blocked pathway. Once in place, the balloon is inflated, gently opening the sinus pathway and helping to restore function and normal sinus drainage. It is then deflated and removed, alleviating sinus pressure and discomfort for the patient.
We offer a full range of elective same-day surgeries and procedures, including hernias (inguinal and umbilical), breast biopsies and needle localization, A-Port insertion, vein stripping, minor excisions and many others.

A full range of same-day gynecological surgical procedures are offered, including dilation and curettage (D&C) with hysteroscopy, diagnostic and operative laparoscopy, laparoscopic tubal sterilization (LTS), NovaSure® ablation and Monarch transvaginal sling treatments.
The Surgical Center offers some of the most advanced outpatient ophthalmic procedures in the country. Services include argon laser for glaucoma, atrabismus surgery, lacrimal duct probing, dacryocystorhinostomy, minor plastic procedures such as entropian/extropian repairs, and more.
Additionally, with a state-of-the-art Storz Millennium Microsurgical System, the Surgical Center offers one of the latest, most popular procedures in ophthalmology today: cataract phacoemulsification. Called phaco for short, this procedure uses ultrasonic vibrations to liquefy the inner-ocular lens, which is then removed with a suction tube. A new, artificial lens (called an intraocular lens, or IOL) is put in its place. Compared to traditional surgery, phaco is a highly accurate procedure that reduces trauma to the eye—producing amazing results with virtually no pain.
Oral surgical services include impacted wisdom teeth extraction, gingival cysts surgery and many others.
The latest orthopedic and arthroscopic procedures are performed at the Surgical Center to provide patients with less invasive, less painful solutions for muscle and joint problems. Services include knee and shoulder arthroscopies, ACL repairs, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger and more.
Board-certified pain management physicians provide safe, fast procedures at the Surgical Center to help patients manage pain and get on with their lives. Our physicians offer the latest in intrathecal and epidural infusion, disk procedures, facial pain and spinal cord stimulation.
Mount Nittany Health also offers pain management services at the Mount Nittany Health Pain Management Program.
Surgical podiatry services include bunionectomy, hammertoe correction, ankle arthroscopies, plantar fasciectomy, plantar warts extraction and more.
The Surgical Center offers several urological services, including lithotripsy, vasectomy, hydroceles, circumcision and other elective urological procedures.
We also offer one of the latest, most advanced methods in the fight against prostate cancer: brachytherapy. This internal radiation treatment is delivered by placing radioactive material (seeds) directly into a tumor or close to it. Compared to traditional methods involving repeated treatments of external radiation therapy, this one-time procedure allows a high dose of radiation to attack the cancer while minimizing damage to surrounding organs and tissues. Patients experience relatively little pain and can go home the same day.
