Blue Ridge Surgery Center Adds to Medical Staff

Raleigh, NC, November 24, 2009 --( High quality medical care is something that all of us need and deserve. The Blue Ridge Surgery Center of Raleigh, an affiliate of Surgical Care Affiliates (SCA), strives to meet that expectation for all of its patients. Part of Blue Ridge’s method to adhere to a high medical standard is by partnering with the best and most experienced medical professionals, which is exemplified with the recent addition of expert Ophthalmologist Michael W. Kelly this summer.

Dr. Michael W. Kelly, a Board Certified Ophthalmologist, has been in practice for 20 years having performed more than 30,000 procedures and holding a position as the Medical Director of the Kelly Eye Center, which he founded in 2001. Kelly is committed to providing patients with a brand of attention and care that only a surgeon of his level of expertise in small-incision operations can provide. According to former patients, “There are only a few words that really express Kelly: astounding, extraordinary...extremely knowledgeable and exceptionally caring!” Kelly’s medical standing afforded him the opportunity to be among the nation’s first trained doctors to perform with the Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL). A leader in the field and a specialist in cataract surgery, Kelly is a welcomed addition to Blue Ridge Surgery Center.

As part of one of the largest specialty surgical service providers, the Blue Ridge Surgery Center is open to every qualified physician in the Raleigh area. Blue Ridge is accredited for going above and beyond even The Joint Commission’s standards for quality healthcare. Adding expertise like Dr. Kelly’s to the already vast scope of services offered including Podiatric surgery, Otolaryngology, Pain management, Orthopedics and Urology will further enrich Blue Ridge Surgery Center’s ability to provide exceptional clinical care.
