Before Your Surgery

You may find it helpful to complete Advance Directives before your surgery. This packet includes forms for values statements, living wills and durable power of attorney for healthcare.

There is no such thing as a routine surgery for you or a loved one. These are important and serious events, for which the best minds and best technology are paramount.

That’s why Eastside residents turn to Overlake for the highest-quality medical care available. Our state-of-the-art surgical center accommodates a full range of services, from minimally invasive procedures—including those performed with the da Vinci Surgical System—to complex open-heart surgery.

In addition to general surgery, our state-of-the-art surgical center offers several specialty programs including joint replacement, vascular and weight loss surgeries.

Overlake’s surgical services have received numerous awards, including the Qualis Award for Excellence in Health Care Quality and the Surgical Infection Prevention Collaborative Regional Award. In 2010, we were named a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

Surgical Services Team

Your surgery involves many more people than just your surgeon. You will interact with volunteers, be served by anesthesiologists and helped by many other people along the way.

The surgical staff at Overlake embraces a philosophy of respect, compassion, advocacy and integrity. Our experienced and caring surgical teams work hard to create a harmonious, therapeutic and technologically advanced environment for all patients and their families throughout the surgical process.

Anticoagulation Therapy

After surgery, your doctor may prescribe anticoagulation medication, also called blood thinners, to help prevent blood clots from forming while you are less active and recovering. Our Anticoagulation Clinic in Bellevue and Issaquah ensures you get your blood checked regularly without having to schedule doctor's appointment.
