Center for Advanced Surgery

CAS reception areaThe UK Center for Advanced Surgery (CAS) provides expertise in the care of patients whose surgery is performed in the ambulatory setting. Our environment is family-oriented and friendly. The personal needs of our patients and their families are met by a caring staff. The start time of a surgical procedure is more dependable at the CAS than in a hospital setting, where emergency cases may disrupt the schedule. This means more predictability and higher satisfaction for our patients. 

Amenities include:

  • A patient-friendly atmosphere.
  • Electronic displays allow families to continuously track the patient’s progress.
  • State-of-the-art surgical and anesthesia equipment.
  • An acute-pain service is available for patients receiving peripheral nerve blocks performed by anesthesiologists.

If you decide not to have surgery or if you need to cancel due to a fever, a breathing or viral illness, or a family emergency, please call your surgeon’s office and the Pre-op Anesthesia Clinic at 800-898-7644 or 859-323-5849 during office hours (9 a.m.-5 p.m.) or 859-323-5860 after hours. If it is the day of surgery, call the location where you are scheduled to have your surgery.
