We are proud to introduce to you our haven of health, beauty, and safe surgery – RadiancePrivate Outpatient Surgery Center. Radiance Surgery Center has undergone the most stringent evaluations and inspections, such as those our local and university hospitals have undergone. The Pennsylvania State Department of Health, Medicare, and the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Hospitals have licensed Radiance Surgery Center as a first-class surgical center, and we will be able to bill for all third-party insurance plans for facility fees for reconstructive surgery. Furthermore, Dr. Cherup’s attending status at Allegheny General, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, St Clair Hospital, Ohio Valley General, Canonsburg General and Monongahela Valley assures you that her surgical skills and management have been scrutinized by some of the best medical staffs in Pittsburgh. Along with that, she has recruited the cream of the crop in nurses, technicians and anesthesia services to assist her in your care.

After your driver drops you off at our canopied entrance on the building’s lower level, Lisa and Jaime will again greet you at the center’s reception desk and confirm your registration papers. They will escort you to the pre-operative area while your family relaxes in our cozy waiting room with refreshment bar, flat-screen TV and music. Jodi Santini, our nurse manager will introduce herself to you and see that all of your needs are met. Our pre-op nurse will check your vital signs and allergy alerts, help you change into a robe, and will assist our anesthesia staff, headed by Dr. David Sterner, MD, in their interview. Our anesthesia group’s expertise is outpatient anesthesia – quick emergences, nausea-free, and near-painless return to home and function. Also in our pre-op area Dr. Cherup will carefully mark on your body with a big black marker her gameplan for precise and successful surgery.

Angela and Jennifer, our nurse and surgical technician, will also be with you in the operating room during your procedure. Not only will they provide for you a safe and sterile environment, but will explain the events that will occur during your stay, so we can make this as comfortable an experience as it can be for you and your family. Frequently during the procedure Dr. Cherup and staff will talk to you, and assure you of how things are going. In the recovery room, our nurse Susan will tell you to take a deep breath, relax and let us pamper you. Warming blankets and pain medication are in order. No Nausea! is our motto. We will give you at home instructions before you are escorted from our beautiful facility.

Located at 701 Boyce Road and Washington Pike near Interstate 79, our surgery center is convenient for patients from Pittsburgh, West Virginia, and Ohio.

Dr. Cherup is the medical director for Invisible Ink
Laser Tattoo Removal

Unlike older lasers which deliver heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue, the newly FDA approved PicoSure laser uses PressureWave Technology to shatter the ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body. The result is clearer skin after fewer treatments without injuring the surrounding skin. It also allows for the removal of stubborn blue and green inks as well as previously-treated, difficult tattoos.
