The center was founded by a close group of surgeons in Newport Beach. After operating many years at many local surgery centers in the area, they felt they could do a better job of quality care, patient safety and efficiency than the centers in which they operated at the time. After a year of planning, developing, building and staffing, Newport Center Surgical proudly opened in 2004. When the center opened, we specialized in orthopedic, gynecology and cosmetic. We added gastroenterology and pain management in the following years.
