STOCKTON, Calif., Dec. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — National Surgical Centers Stockton (NSCS) LLC announced today the full opening of its freestanding ambulatory surgery center (ASC), providing care for patients with specific vascular, cardiac and podiatry-related health needs.

National Surgical Centers Stockton’s mission is to provide minimally-invasive procedures in a safe, friendly, state-of-the-art and compassionate environment, in order to improve the quality of life for its patients.

Additional procedures performed in the ASC include cardiac rhythm management, dialysis access procedures, port placement and removal, uterine fibroid embolization, lumbar puncture, and other approved interventional procedures.”
