Tennessee Valley Eye Center opens new surgery center

KNOXVILLE – The Tennessee Valley Eye Center (TVEC) has opened its new surgery center at 160 Capital Drive. The new center, adjacent to its existing location on Capital Drive, in West Knoxville, will be the largest dedicated ophthalmology surgery center in Tennessee.

The physician-owned surgery center has been in operation since 1999 and specializes in treating the full range of ophthalmology diseases, including cataract, cornea, glaucoma, oculo-plastics, retina and strabismus.

“We are very excited to open the doors to our new surgery center,” Melanie Burgess, TVEC Administrator said. “It has been a long time coming and we are looking forward to providing our wonderful patients an even greater experience. One of our core values and beliefs is the idea that we should always treat our patients like family — the new surgery center lets us do that by providing a comfortable, state-of-the-art facility to serve in. We use technology, but we are not selling technology. Our surgeons make choices in the patients’ best interests — technology supports those choices.”

The new 12,000 sq. ft. facility will feature six operating rooms, one procedure room, and new state-of-the-art equipment designed to enhance the center’s current capabilities. The new surgery center is also adjacent to TVEC’s affiliated physician practice location, thus creating an ophthalmology campus. TVEC performs 11,000 procedures per year and serves as the only ophthalmology surgery center in the region with an MD Anesthesiologist on site for every case. To make an appointment with a member of TVEC’s medical staff, contact Baptist Eye Surgeons, Knoxville Eye Center, Knoxville Pediatric Ophthalmology, Southeastern Retina Associates, or University Eye Specialists.
