Northern Arizona SurgiCenter (NASC), owned and operated by Dr. Steve Lex, and Dr. Jack Quigley since 1996, was specially designed for their cosmetic and reconstructive surgery patients. Located in the same building as Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona, but with its own secluded entrance, NASC offers patients the comfort, convenience, privacy, and reduced cost of an on-site ambulatory surgical center.
Licensed for ambulatory surgery by the Arizona Department of Health Services, certified by Medicare and accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Heathcare (AAAHC), Northern Arizona SurgiCenter is a state-of-the-art surgical facility featuring two operating rooms, spacious pre-operative and recovery facilities, and the most advanced equipment on the market. NASC is also licensed as a multi-specialty facility, meaning outside physicians regularly use its operating rooms. These include specialists in pediatric dentistry, podiatry, general surgery, and urology.
Staffed with a team of highly trained nurses, NASC patients often comment on not only the professionalism of our nurses, but also their warmth, sense of humor, and the compassionate care that they provide during what can often be a stressful time. It is our goal, at both Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona and Northern Arizona SurgiCenter, to create an atmosphere of comfort, safety and calm for all of our patients in order to achieve the excellence on which we pride ourselves.

Steve Schwartz – Administrator
Steve Schwartz, the administrator of both Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona and Northern Arizona SurgiCenter, holds a Master of Science degree in biology from Northern Arizona University, and a Master of Management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University. He started his career as administrator for an ophthalmology practice and ambulatory surgery center in Colorado before moving to Illinois to do the same thing. His jump to plastic surgery took place in 1996 when he returned to Flagstaff to work with PSNA. Steve loves not only the variety that PSNA offers — there’s never a boring day– but also that he gets to work with a great staff at a top notch facility. An avid sports enthusiast, Steve likes hiking, mountain biking, trail running, cross-country skiing and backpacking so, for him, Flagstaff is nirvana and the perfect place to raise his four sons.
