Welcome to First State Surgery Center

About Same Day Surgery

Same day surgery now accounts for more than 75 percent of all surgeries. Thanks to advances in technology and anesthesia, even surgeries that just a few years ago required a hospital stay can now be handled safely and with greater comfort in a surgery center.

Everything about the First State Surgery Center is specially designed for same day surgery, from the streamlined, state-of-the-art operating rooms to the efficient procedures that move you smoothly from prep to operation to recovery. Because same day surgery is our only concern, your operation is never delayed to make way for an emergency, as can happen elsewhere.

Pro-Active About Providing Charity Care

The First State Surgery Center is committed to providing charity care to the less fortunate in Delaware. FSSC is searching for uninsured individuals in our community who need and are healthy enough to have outpatient orthopaedic surgery. The staff of the Surgery Center pro-actively contacts Social Services Agencies, Community Centers, and other organizations annually. First State Surgery Center wants to do more than its share, so if you know someone who needs our charitable surgical services, please contact:
