The staff was positive and friendly

"I had a hip replacement in the surgery center in Walnut Creek a year ago.   This is a substantial operation, requiring 4 – 6 months of rehab to regain full function.  The center handled the procedure very well. Overall my rating is 4.5 out of 5.  The staff was positive and friendly. Everything was on time.  The center is compact, so you are moving short distances from your own prep/holding/recovery area to the OR and back again.  It was great to go home the same day – I was there about 12 hours, start to finish.   I recommend this option over the hospital if your condition and the complexity of your operation allow it."
