Orthopedic Surgery

Your Safety is Our Priority

With cutting-edge, minimally invasive techniques that go between the muscles, tendons, and ligaments, rather than cutting through them, Lake Charles Memorial's orthopedic surgeons utilize tiny cameras and surgical instruments inserted via one or two small incisions. Surgeries and procedures, in most cases, take less than two hours, with reduced trauma, faster healing, less pain, shorter hospital stays, and better cosmetic benefits. Navio™ robotic-assisted partial and total knee replacement is now available at Memorial offering greater precision in removing diseased bone while sparing healthy tissue and bone.
