Outpatient surgery (also known as ambulatory surgery) does not require an overnight stay. Minimally invasive surgery is performed through the smallest incision possible with a minimal amount of trauma. Both outpatient surgery and minimally invasive surgery are a movement towards rapid recovery and returning you back to your life as quickly as possible.

Willamette Surgery Center offers the latest in technology combined with a personalized and compassionate approach. Our facility is warm and welcoming, yet houses the most advanced medical systems and equipment. Your family will appreciate our comfortable reception and waiting areas, and as a patient you’ll appreciate our state-of-the-art operating rooms staffed by our highly trained surgeons and technologists.

Willamette Surgery Center’s overall patient satisfaction rate following outpatient joint replacement surgery is 98%.
