All these facts are very important because New York State has no laws or regulations that control office surgery. In New York, any licensed doctor can perform office surgery in any space legally.
Some doctors perform office surgery even though they do not have hospital privileges to perform surgery in any hospital. Because there is no mandatory supervision, some office surgery is performed in unsafe environments.
In other states such as California and Florida, it is illegal to do office surgery in a facility that is not accredited but in New York, you have to be very careful where you have surgery. Make sure that the place is accredited. New York State has voluntary guidelines for office operating rooms but many offices do not meet these guidelines.
