Beautiful care suites and specialized orthopedic care by professionals who know how to safely accelerate your recovery. Our Eagan Surgery Center is focused exclusively on providing orthopedic surgical care. Depending on the level of care you require, we offer a 23-hour stay for major procedures, in the case that you need just a little extra time to recover after surgery. The Eagan Surgery Center was modeled after Summit’s award-winning Vadnais Heights Surgery Center.
Every element of the surgical experience is custom designed —from state-of-the-art surgical resources to pain management and inviting rooms and compassionate treatment—to provide safe and superior care for excellent value in a beautiful environment so that our patients know they are in good hands.
