After Governor Walz’s latest executive order allowing for elective surgeries to resume, we are following precautionary guidelines and will be resuming procedures that can treat chronic conditions, prevent and cure disease, and relieve chronic pain.
The staff here is highly trained and dedicated to the safety of our patients and staff. In order to offer safe care, we are taking the following precautions:
- Pre-screening patients over the phone before any appointment
- Asking patients with related COVID-19 symptoms to stay home
- Supplying masks to all patients who enter the center
- No vsitors are allowed in the center-patient only unless a guardian is needed
- Temperatures are taken on all patients before the admission process begins
The surgeon’s offices at Lakewalk are prioritizing each case and beginning to schedule based on this information. We are asking patients to contact their surgeon’s office for more details regarding scheduling or rescheduling your elective surgeries.

Lakewalk Surgery Center is an independent outpatient facility designed for quality, comfort, and efficiency. Lakewalk operates as an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC), which serves as a lower-cost alternative for outpatient surgery. We are an Accreditation for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) accredited facility -- the highest accreditation. We take pride in our patient-focused care and our patient satisfaction rating of 98%. We also offer amenities such as comfortable private patient rooms, convenient scheduling, minimal waiting, and free parking.
More than 80 accredited physicians utilize our facility. Because we are independent, any licensed physician may apply for privileges. The surgeons practicing at Lakewalk Surgery Center have performed 180,000-plus procedures to date. If you’re looking to lower out-of-pocket costs on your upcoming surgery, simply ask your physician and request Lakewalk for your surgery.
We recently installed the 4K Arthrex SynergyUHD4 Imaging Platform, which is state-of-the-art surgical technology used in arthroscopic procedures such as shoulder, knee, ankle and hip surgeries. The 4K technology offers a cleaner picture with more color and depth perception, a better camera head, advanced image processing, noise reduction and better monitors. A better picture during surgery means more precise procedures for patients. In addition to better imaging during surgery, surgeons are able to take video and stills of the procedure. Lakewalk is the only facility in our region to have this technology.
It’s important that patients understand that you have a choice in your health care. You choose your provider, you decide what procedures you want done, and to some degree, you can choose the facility that makes you feel most comfortable. When it’s time for outpatient surgery, we encourage our patients to ask the questions that need to be answered:
