Our Surgery Centers Safely Deliver Quality Outcomes
Summit Orthopedics’ ambulatory, or outpatient, surgery centers are focused on providing the highest quality of surgical care and patient service.
Ambulatory surgery centers are a rising trend in healthcare delivery. These healthcare facilities have transformed the patient experience by safely performing procedures and surgeries in a comfortable outpatient setting that is more convenient, and often less costly, than a hospital setting. Surgery centers have demonstrated the ability to improve the quality of the patient experience, provide accelerated outcomes, and reduce healthcare costs.
Summit has three surgery centers in convenient Twin Cities locations. Our facilities are appointed with the latest technology and skilled medical teams to support your care. By handling appropriate procedures and surgeries at our Summit surgery centers, we are able to schedule procedures conveniently, assemble teams of specialty-trained and highly skilled staff to care for you, invest in state-of-the-art technology and equipment, and design facilities and services tailored to your orthopedic needs.
All ambulatory surgery centers are highly regulated by federal and state entities. At Summit, we additionally elect to go through voluntary accreditation by independent accrediting organizations. Our Vadnais Heights Surgery Center and Landmark Surgery Center have been awarded the prestigious Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval for commitment to high quality standards and patient safety.
Our Vadnais Heights and Eagan facilities offers surgical services and more:
- Physicians diagnose and treat the spectrum of bone, joint, and muscle conditions and injuries.
- When you need walk-in care, the OrthoQUICK clinic is open daily.
- You can get an X-Ray or MRI right in clinic.
- We offer hand therapy and physical therapy.
- Bracing and orthotics services are steps away when you need them.
- We also provide guided injection procedures.
The Vadnais Heights and Eagan Surgery Centers offer a 23-hour stay for major procedures, in case you need just a little extra time to recover after surgery. In addition, our luxurious care suites provide you with extended recovery under skilled supervision after more complicated total joint surgeries and larger spine cases.
With our conservative approach to care, many of our patients recover without having to consider surgery. However, when conservative efforts have not produced desired results, we offer facilities designed to give you the best surgical experience possible.
