Lakewalk Surgery Center is taking a further step to protect our community and our staff in our response to the corona virus pandemic. In compliance with Administration recommendations and an executive order signed by Governor Walz yesterday afternoon, we will be suspending all elective surgeries or those not deemed urgent per the Governor’s order. Lakewalk Surgery Center will remain open on a limited basis to provide for patients that have more urgent surgical needs. We stand ready to assist our local hospitals by off loading more urgent surgical cases from the hospital setting if that becomes prudent. We also stand ready to assist our community in other ways and have supplies, equipment, and manpower to contribute should that become necessary.
We have a highly trained and dedicated staff at Lakewalk Surgery Center. This difficult time will impact all of them and their families. As a company we will do what we can to support our employees, the community at large, and the medical needs of our region.
Our patient satisfaction
rating is 98 percent.
Straight-forward billing without
countless add-on fees.
An array of surgeries, procedures,
and medical services.
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:
