Surgical Procedures

Twin Lakes Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine's team of board-certified orthopaedic surgeons provides both inpatient and outpatient orthopaedic surgical services.

Twin Lakes Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine uses Baxter Health in Mountain Home, for surgical procedures. Initial postoperative checkups are scheduled through the hospital's recovery room if the procedure was performed at the hospital, and further checkups, including rehabilitation therapy, are scheduled through our office. All postoperative checkups following outpatient surgery are scheduled through our office.

Outpatient Surgery
Twin Lakes Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine uses the facilities of Baxter Health in Mountain Home for orthopaedic outpatient surgeries. Outpatient surgeries are performed in one day and do not require an overnight stay in a hospital. Some of the most common types of outpatient orthopaedic surgeries include knee scopes, endoscopic or open carpal tunnel releases, hardware removals, trigger finger releases, rotator cuff repair, and repair of hand injuries.

Benefits of Outpatient Surgery:

  • Lower out-of-pocket costs (up to 50% less than traditional hospital outpatient surgery)
  • Quicker pre-surgery check-in
  • Convenient parking
  • Personalized service
  • Comprehensive care (workup, testing, surgical planning, surgery, rehab)
  • Most insurance, Workman's Comp, Medicare, & Medicaid accepted

Inpatient Surgery
Inpatient surgeries require the patient to stay at least one night in the hospital. As an inpatient, you have convenient access to a full-time nursing staff and many other medical services. Some of the most common inpatient orthopaedic surgeries performed include total knee, hip, and shoulder replacements; and pinning fractures of the wrist, arm, foot, ankle, leg, and hip.

Baxter Health's modern surgical facilities ensure that your health will be closely monitored before, during, and after surgery. Rest assured that highly trained doctors, perioperative nurses, and others will attend to both your emotional and physical needs.

Anesthesiologists are specially trained physicians who plan, administer, and monitor the anesthetic drugs that "put you to sleep" during surgery. For this service, Twin Lakes Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine utilizes the active staff anesthesiologists at Baxter Health when the surgeries are performed there.
