UC Davis offers same-day surgeries in Davis
Orthopaedic surgeons based at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento are performing some outpatient surgeries and procedures in Davis as part of a new affiliation with the Davis Surgery Center. The location provides a convenient alternative for same-day surgery patients who reside in Yolo County.
Surgeries at the center — located at 2120 Cowell Blvd. in South Davis — involve noninvasive arthroscopic repairs to bone and joint injuries of the hand, knee, shoulder, wrist and elbow, including carpal tunnel syndrome and meniscal tears. Complex procedures requiring post-operative hospital admission will continue to be scheduled at the medical center.
“The Davis center offers a small, accessible location for those whose procedures don’t require the many resources of a large academic medical center,” said Maureen McKennan, regional affiliations officer for UC Davis Health System. “We hope this will be one of many affiliations that we establish to help serve patients in surrounding communities who rely on UC Davis for their care.”
UC Davis Medical Center is a comprehensive academic medical center where clinical practice, teaching and research converge to advance human health. The medical center serves a 33-county, 65,000-square-mile area that stretches north to the Oregon border and east to Nevada. It further extends its reach through the award-winning telemedicine program, which gives remote, medically underserved communities throughout California unprecedented access to specialty and subspecialty care.
