They use the latest and best pain control techniques so that people are able to undergo most orthopedic procedures in a surgery center setting and safely go home the same day.

We offer the full spectrum of orthopedic and interventional pain management care, including: 

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Orthopedic spine surgeons specialize in minimally invasive surgical treatments to relieve pain from herniated discs and degenerative conditions in the back and neck. Our surgeons perform common surgeries such as discectomies, fusions, and laminectomies with small incisions that result in less bleeding, less discomfort after surgery, and a quicker recovery time. 

Joint Replacement

Same-day joint replacement is available for arthritic hips, knees, and shoulders. Our orthopedic surgeons perform hundreds of these procedures each year helping people get back to full and active lives that are free of joint pain. Joint replacement removes painful arthritis in the joints and replaces the joint with an implant, which can immediately relieve the chronic aching and swelling in the joint and get you on the road to recovery. 

Sports Medicine

The team of orthopedic sports medicine surgeons at Premier Surgery Center are experts in caring for injuries to the knees, hips, and shoulders. They offer minimally invasive, arthroscopic surgery to address ligament and tendon tears in the knee and frequently repair ACL, MCL, and meniscus tears. They also perform common shoulder surgeries such as rotator cuff and labral repairs. Our surgeons are experts at restoring function as safely and quickly as possible so you can get back to your favorite activities.

Hand Surgery

The complex structures and small bones of the hand and wrist require highly specialized care. The orthopedic hand surgeons at Premier Surgery Center are experts in addressing all types of hand, wrist, and elbow injuries, as well as chronic conditions such as, carpal, and cubital tunnel syndrome, joint pain, and stiffness from an injury or arthritis, nerve and tendon injuries, and fractures of the hand and wrist. 

Foot and Ankle Surgery

Our orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons are specialists in treating all types of injuries, deformities, fractures, and arthritis in the foot and ankle. They can repair complex fractures in all areas of the foot and ankle, treat common deformities such as bunions and hammertoes, and repair tendons and ligaments in the ankle. Arthritis in the foot and ankle is common, and they offer both ankle fusions to the newest ankle replacement options to relieve arthritis pain in ankle without compromising motion. 

Interventional Pain Management

Steroid Injections

These injections are commonly used for acute pain relief. They are popular as a treatment for facet joint arthritis or pain that is related to inflammation in a joint space. Epidural steroid injections can be guided directly into a joint or the spine to reduce or alleviate pain from arthritis, herniated discs, or sciatica. In the surgery center, we utilize fluoroscopic or x-ray guidance to make sure your doctor is able to inject the medication in just the right place to provide pain relief. 

Radiofrequency Ablation

This is a safe and minimally invasive technique that is often used to treat chronic lower back and neck pain that is caused by arthritis or other degenerative conditions. Only a local anesthetic is needed to numb the treatment area, and a light sedative is given to make you comfortable and relaxed during the procedure. Most people report only minimal discomfort.
