Advanced Surgical Care Gets You Back to the Life You Love

When other treatment options aren’t right for you, our specialists may need to use a surgical procedure to help you heal. At AdventHealth Lake Wales, formerly Lake Wales Medical Center, we offer a full range of surgical procedures to fit your needs.

With collective experience in all medical disciplines and types of care, our surgeons use minimally invasive and robot-assisted techniques whenever possible. Robotics — like the da Vinci® Surgical System — help our team optimize precision and use smaller incisions during surgery, which typically means less pain and scarring and a faster recovery for you.

Many surgeries performed at our facility can be done on an outpatient basis, meaning you’ll return home the same day as your procedure. If you do require an additional hospital stay, our dedicated care teams can help you recover as quickly as possible so you can get back to the life you love.

We’re here to help you find the right physician or a location that’s convenient for you.
