Lake Tahoe Surgery Center (LTSC) is a Joint Commission accredited, multi-specialty surgery center. LTSC opened in 1998 and has grown into one of the major providers of ambulatory health services in the area with a large roster of Board Certified surgery physicians.
We offer a wide variety of specialty surgical procedures including orthopedics, podiatry, pain management and general surgery procedures. Because the surgery performed in our facility utilizes technologically advanced cameras and instruments through small incisions, a minimum of muscle and tissue are cut to perform the actual surgery.
Our facility accommodates two surgical suites and the latest high-tech equipment is utilized to provide the proven benefits of minimally-invasive surgery: less pain, less risk and less recuperative time for patients. Because all procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, our patients do not have the additional expense of hospital room charges or additional “hidden” fees. Additionally, our fully equipped recovery stations ensure the privacy and comfort of each of our patients.
For the benefit of our patients and their families, Lake Tahoe Surgery Center provides individualized attention and a personal touch through our highly-trained physicians, nurses and administrative staff. We emphasize patient satisfaction by minimizing tension and anxiety, maximizing comfort and fostering healing.
