ABOUT Vantage


Vantage has made turnkey specialty surgical operations a mainstay for surgical facilities and surgeons.





Patients can receive complete care in their own community.

Since 1991, Vantage has shaped an industry that allows rural communities to have access to specialty surgery procedures that would have traditionally been sent to more populated areas. This continues to result in patients accessing complete care in their own community, within an environment they know and trust.

Under the leadership of founder and industry icon Ann Deters, Vantage emerged as a premier source for cataract services by delivering state-of-the-art cataract surgery equipment, IOLs, instrumentation, disposables, expert staff, and supplies, that enable hospitals, surgery centers, and physicians to provide local communities with the highest quality cataract surgery experience.

Vantage continues to expand its cataract practice under its Vantage Clear program and its gastroenterology practice under its Vantage GI program. The company will continue to deploy its model and expertise within other specialty areas.

A portfolio company within Pharos Capital Group, Vantage is focused on client success which has resulted in a customer retention rate of 99.8% and a customer satisfaction rating of 99.6%.

Every member of the Vantage team has a vital role in the experience we deliver for our customers, their surgeons, and the communities they serve. We empower every member of our team to drive delivery excellence.

Our team shares in a commitment to our core values:






The Vantage Point

The Vantage Point tells our story of unwavering focus. Each component communicates our commitment to the entities we serve including:

The Community. The Surgeon. The Facility. And, most importantly, The Patient.
