First Hill Surgery Center

If your physician recommends surgery, he or she might schedule it at First Hill Surgery Center, an ambulatory or outpatient surgery center. First Hill Surgery Center is located in the heart of Seattle’s First Hill medical community and is one of the largest independent outpatient surgery centers in the region. A joint venture between The Polyclinic and Swedish Medical Center, First Hill Surgery Center features the latest surgical technology in a patient-friendly setting. Some procedures that may be performed in this facility include, but are not limited to:

  • Spine surgery
  • Total hip, knee, or shoulder replacement
  • Knee and shoulder arthroscopy
  • Tumor excision
  • ACL reconstruction
  • Clavicle repairs

The Polyclinic is proud to offer outpatient total joint replacement and certain types of spine surgery at First Hill Surgery Center. A few hours after these surgeries, patients are discharged to recover in their own home with a caregiver. Patients avoid an overnight hospital stay, which can reduce the risk of complications, including infection. First Hill Surgery Center also has overall lower facility fees which means lower out-of-pocket cost compared with a typical hospital stay.

Patients who are generally healthy and active are good candidates for these surgeries in an outpatient setting. Talk to your Polyclinic orthopedics provider to find out if total joint replacement or spine surgery at First Hill Surgery Center is right for you.
