Surgery at Fairview Lakes Medical Center

If you need surgery, you’ve come to the right place.

Our surgery center offers high-quality care with a focus on minimally invasive procedures that reduce pain and speed recovery time. The surgeon makes a few half-inch incisions before using a tiny video camera and special instruments to find, remove and repair whatever's wrong.

Our surgeons perform general and specialty procedures for patients of all ages, from pediatric through seniors.
