The Orthopaedic Surgery Center of La Jolla
Going to a large impersonal hospital for surgery can often be very stressful. However, at the San Diego Center for Spinal Disorders we offer an exceptional alternative for many of our patients who need surgery.
The Orthopaedic Surgery Center of La Jolla is a state-of-the-art surgery facility, conveniently located in the same building complex as our offices. The Center has a very welcoming and personalized, yet professional atmosphere. Every effort is made to make the patient and their family and friends comfortable upon arrival and throughout the day of surgery.
The Center is equipped with the latest surgical technology, including equipment for minimally invasive spine surgery. Minimally invasive spine surgery (i.e. surgery through very small incisions) often results in far quicker recovery times for patients. In fact nearly all of our patients at the Surgery Center go home on the same day as their surgery!
Patients should remember that the Orthopaedic Surgery Center is not suitable for all of our patients. Major surgeries that will require a patient to stay in the hospital for one or more nights are not done at the Center, as it is not equipped for longer stays of over 24 hours.
However, for healthy patients who require less extensive spine surgery, the Orthopaedic Surgery Center is a great option, offering convenience, personalized care and state-of-the art surgical treatment.
