Our Office and Private Surgery Center
Our Office is located
in Beverly Hills, California, in an area known as the Golden Triangle, a section that has been occupied by world-class
specialty physicians and surgeons for decades. We are situated a few blocks west of Rodeo Drive and just two miles east
The Beverly Hills Ambulatory Surgery Center is our private operating room located immediately adjacent to our office suite. This allows for maximum convenience
and ease in scheduling surgical procedures for our patients. Designed, owned and directed by Dr. Norman Shorr, the Beverly Hills Ambulatory Surgery Center was built specifically
for oculoplastic and cosmetic surgery. It is also a Fully Accredited, Medicare Certified Ambulatory Surgery Center.
The Beverly Hills Ambulatory Surgery Center provides the highest standard of care
along with the most advanced medical technology and state of the art equipment. Dr. Shorr, his colleagues and our entire surgical staff are dedicated professionals committed to your care and comfort before, during and after your
procedure. All surgical procedures are done under local sedation by our CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist). This
type of sedation is safer and has fewer potential side effects than general anesthesia. Following surgery, our nurse will
keep you warm and comfortable as you recover and will provide you with your written postoperative instructions. Patients enjoy
complete privacy when leaving the facility through a back-door entrance which is just a few steps from the recovery area.
Prior to Your Surgery
It is important that you arrange for a family member or friend to drive you home after your
procedure and stay with you for at least 8 hours. For those who are from out of town, we can arrange for a nurse to accompany
you to your hotel and to stay with you for the 8 hours. The fee for this service ranges from $280 to $360.
The Day of Surgery
wear comfortable clothing. A button down shirt or blouse is preferred to avoid pulling anything over your head. No makeup,
jewelry, or contact lenses. Please bring the name and phone number of your driver, the name and phone number of your regular
pharmacy, your prescription insurance card and a credit card or some form of payment for your medications. In most cases your
prescriptions can be called in to your pharmacy in advance, but in the event something additional needs to be prescribed,
we can call it in to your regular pharmacy, or to the pharmacy located right here in our building on the day of your procedure.
