Ocean Surgery Center is a state-of-the-art, multispecialty outpatient surgery center credentialed by the State of California and CMS (Medicare) since 2006.
The surgery center’s seeds were sown in the 1980s when Dr. Sherif Khattab, OSC’s then-to-be Medical Director, moved to Los Angeles to run the Burn Unit for LA County. After two decades of serving patients from a South Bay practice, the surgery center was both a natural and forward-looking expansion, allowing the team to broaden its healing roles.
Today, OSC’s surgical roster spans seven medical specialties: ENT, general surgery, gynecology, orthopedics, plastic and reconstructive, podiatry, and urology.
Our facility—staffed board-certified surgeons, registered nurses, and a team of cheery care-coordination gurus—is both a recognized entity in the medical community and frontrunner among healthcare innovators.

OSC received its accreditation in 2006, with successive re-inspection and renewal taking place every three years.
Accreditation requires OSC to report surgical outcomes to three entities: the AAAASF itself, the Medical Board of California, and the Centers for Medicare and Medical Services (CMS).
