The Surgery Center at Cranberry was founded in 2003 by William C. Christie and has rapidly gained recognition for offering patients cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technologies and a passion for phenomenal patient care. Our expert, board-certified staff and clinical team are dedicated to ensuring each patient has the most optimal and safe surgical experience possible.

The Surgery Center at Cranberry shows significantly lower rates of complication and infection than hospitals performing similar procedures. At hospitals, patients risk exposure to other patients with illness or infectious disease – ambulatory surgery centers minimize this risk. Periodic audits confirm that the Surgery Center at Cranberry is compliant with the standards and regulations of both the Pennsylvania Health Department and the QUAD A (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc.).

The Surgery Center at Cranberry is easily accessible in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, making it convenient for patients to receive care throughout the Tri-State area.

When you need cataract surgery, choose the most state-of-the-art and advanced cataract procedures available, with premium intraocular lenses that help reduce your dependence on visual aids after cataract surgery. The expertise of our team ensures optimal results, allowing you to enjoy clearer vision and the visual freedom cataracts took from you.

YAG Capsulotomy

A YAG capsulotomy is a procedure that treats posterior capsular opacification, a condition that can occur after cataract surgery. It's painless and only takes a few minutes to perform in-office at Cranberry Surgery Center.


Our skilled team offers MIGS (Microinvasive Glaucoma Surgery) as a minimally invasive way to manage and treat glaucoma. This approach focuses on early detection and tailoring treatments to each patient to preserve your vision and give you the best quality of life.

Glaucoma Laser (SLT Laser): SLT is a noninvasive treatment for glaucoma. It lowers eye pressure.


The Surgery Center at Cranberry offers a wide variety of oculoplastic procedures, which address functional and cosmetic concerns around the eyes.

Our specialized surgeons treat conditions like ptosis, removing excess skin around the eyes and tear duct disorders to help your eyes look and feel their best.

Cornea Transplants

A cornea transplant may be necessary if you have a corneal disease or injury. We offer the latest techniques in cornea transplants and perform procedures like penetrating keratoplasty (PK), partial thickness corneal transplants (DSAEK), partial-thickness corneal graft operation (DMEK), and corneal cross-linking to stop the progression of keratoconus in appropriate patients.

Strabismus Surgery

We can treat strabismus, a condition characterized by eye misalignment. Our team of credentialed surgeons offer surgical techniques to correct the alignment of the eyes to improve vision, depth perception, and quality of life.
