Nationally recognized advanced surgical care

Summit’s Vadnais Heights Surgery Center was recently awarded The Joint Commission’s Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement. This facility is one of just two nationwide to receive the prestigious certification.

Conservative approaches explored prior to surgery

Unless you play in the National Football League, surgery isn’t a normal part of life. We take a conservative approach to care, and surgery is something we consider only after other efforts have not produced desired results. It’s a decision that you and your surgeon make together.

Choosing the right surgical environment

Summit specialists perform surgery both at our ambulatory surgery centers for same-day surgery, as well as at local hospitals for patients who are better suited for that environment. Certain larger total knee and hip replacements as well as advanced spine procedures can be performed at our Vadnais Heights or Eagan Surgery Centers followed by an overnight Care Suites recovery stay. Talk with your surgeon about what option would be best for your unique situation.
