Our Surgery Center

Newport Bay Surgery Center

The vast majority of our surgeries are performed at the Newport Bay Surgery Center, which is dedicated to eye care. The center is committed to the pursuit of excellence through integrity, teamwork, and personalized service to patients, each other, and the community. The location on the seawall at Harbor Marina provides a uniquely beautiful and tranquil setting. Newly opened in 2007, Newport Bay Surgery Center (NBSC) is a physician-owned outpatient surgery center dedicated solely to eye surgery. NBSC is Medicare certified and HFAP accredited as an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). NBSC draws ophthalmic surgeons from Huntington Beach, Irvine, Newport Beach, and Fountain Valley area.

With technological advances in microsurgery evolving faster than ever, modern eye surgery requires specialized equipment, nursing, and anesthesia staff. Newport Bay Surgery Center has been developed by surgeons who share the vision of an outpatient ophthalmic surgical center of excellence. The result is a modern ambulatory surgery center specializing in serving the unique needs of eye surgical patients.

The facility has met accreditation standards for the Health Facilities Accreditation Association (HFAP) and is certified by Medicare. The accreditation process sets standards for practices of patient care, safety, quality improvement, administrative involvement, medical record maintenance and professional development of the staff. This process continually challenges the center to seek better and innovative ways to provide the best quality of patient care.

The Newport Bay Surgery Center is based on certain core beliefs:

  • The patient’s family and friends provide important support and are encouraged to be as involved as possible in the care of their loved ones.
  • Patients have a right to honest and forthright medical information presented in a manner they can understand.
  • A calm, caring and cheerful environment minimizes patient stress.
  • All actions should be guided by integrity, honesty and compassion.
  • True success comes from doing the right things for the right reasons.
  • Efficient, quality eye care is provided best by professionals practicing at the highest level of their expertise.

Dr, Jwo in the Irvine office is nothing short of a miracle worker. I can see for the first time in a decade. He counseled me on the different options for cataract surgery. Completed two surgeries to remove them from both eyes over three-week span as soon as the office re-opened, and voilá my vision is now nearly 20/20. Painless surgeries and very quick. Did not do Lasik, either. Just standard eye surgery paid in full by Medicare and my Blue Shield supplement. I want to kiss him everytime I wake up to deep blue skies, green trees bending in the breeze, the cobalt blue of the ocean, detail so magnificent I can see clearly now, the veils caused by my cataracts over my eyes has been lifted. Why did I wait so long? This young but highly educated and experienced doctor has made a huge difference in my quality of life.
