Same Day Outpatient Orthopaedic Surgery at Lakewood Surgery Center
As a result of new medical technologies that are now available, Lakewood Surgery Center surgeons are able to perform many procedures that once required a hospital stay. Today, many procedures can be conducted in the Center’s outpatient setting, providing a major benefit to patients by allowing them to return to the comfort of their own homes the same day as their surgery.
Puget Sound Orthopaedics’ board certified orthopaedic surgeons operate at this comprehensive outpatient surgery center. Our doctors are joined by a highly trained medical team, which includes registered nurses, surgical technologists and anesthesiologists, along with our helpful administrative staff. At every phase of your care, our goal is to provide highly skilled, compassionate care in a comfortable environment.

"The doctors and support staff have to be the nicest and attentive group of people you'd ever want to meet. As to your family/caregiver going back with you prior to surgery, well, its just not necessary. All pre-op info is given to you personally by your doctor, in the LSC brochure, and in the mailing the LSC sends you. The family/caregiver is thoroughly briefed by the doctor and support staff post-op. " - John D.
