High Pointe Surgery Center was recently recognized as one of 200 orthopedic and spine-driven surgery centers to know. This is a nationwide recognition out of more than 6,000+ ASC’s. High Pointe Surgery Center performed its first case in February 1999 and Surgical Management Professionals joined the center in 2000. The ASC was originally founded by several independent physician groups and Lakeview Hospital, Stillwater MN. The surgery center includes five operating rooms and one procedure room where physicians perform cases such as knee and shoulder arthroscopy, pain management procedures and laminectomies. Surgeons at the center performed their first unicompartmental knee replacement and plan to begin performing total knee replacements in the next four to six months. In the future, the surgery center plans to incorporate cervical fusions and total shoulder and hip replacements into the mix as well. There are 25 physician owners and 36 physicians performing cases at the center.
