About Raleigh Orthopaedic Surgery Center

As part of our main location in Raleigh, NC, the Surgical Center represents one of our two main locations for surgeries to be performed under the Raleigh Orthopaedic name. Although we strive to provide our patients with nonsurgical solutions to their orthopedic issues whenever possible, surgery is necessary in some cases. When that is the case, your surgeon at Raleigh Orthopaedic will walk you through your options and ensure that you feel confident in your care plan. We are proud to help our patients live and move more comfortably and get back to sports, work, and daily life as efficiently as possible.

The surgery center, which is located near the North Carolina Museum of Art and across from UNC REX Hospital, is easily accessible from Route 40 and Route 440. Raleigh Orthopaedic Surgery Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and is the first outpatient surgery center in the Triangle.

Why Choose Raleigh Orthopaedic Surgery Center?

The Raleigh Orthopaedic Surgery Center, which opened in the spring of 2013, brings together two premier organizations to provide patients with a new level of orthopedic surgical excellence. We are the largest outpatient surgery center in the Triangle to specialize exclusively in orthopedics, and our patients experience outstanding patient satisfaction, superior clinical outcomes, and reduced costs.

The surgical center, at 27,707 square feet, is the largest and most modern outpatient orthopedic facility in Eastern North Carolina. In addition to modern and comfortable amenities for those in the waiting room, there are 7 pre-operative bays, 2 large procedure rooms, 4 operating rooms, 8 stage I recovery bays, and 9 stage II recovery bays.

However, most patients don’t choose us for our modern facilities and the latest surgical technology. We’re the choice for orthopedic surgery in the Triangle community because we stick to our commitment to patient-focused care. Your treatments are always physician-directed, and our surgical staff consists of surgeons trusted by everyone from professional and amateur athletes to families and seniors. For the most comfortable experience and the best long-term outcome, trust Raleigh Orthopaedic. If you’re interested in seeing reviews from previous patients, please continue reading for reviews of both our surgeons as well as our surgical center.

Loving and friendly staff and surgical team
Raleigh Ortho provides excellent and competent care. Dr. Callaway and Lauren PA have truly given me the best care. Their bedside manner and knowledge has helped me with my ability to stay active despite joint issues. I would highly recommend this practice for all your ortho needs.
Everyone was kind, informative, caring, and courteous!!
Good facility, good customer service in general from the moment you walk in. Good Physicians and Nurses. Convenient location with plenty of parking and seating area in the lobby. One of the very few surgery centers that keeps option of complementary coffee/tea while waiting. It also has drinks/snacks vending machines. The place is clean and well maintained including restrooms. The lobby has chairs with/without attached small trays for laptops or food so is convenient if you have to work remotely while waiting.
Knee Issues – look no further, outstanding med team and staff.

Response from the owner: Thank you for sharing your feedback. We appreciate it!
The entire team was very professional and respectful. My husband and I was treated like family and taken very much care of. I had the best care from the time I walked through the door. My pre op nurse did a wonderful job with finding my vein for my IV because I have very small veins and they like to move. Recovery nurse name was Shannon and she was the sweetest and most kind lady to my husband and I. She made surely husband and I was comfortable and did not rush me at all afterwards. The team I had on the day of surgery was the best starting with Dr. Barker my surgeon , Kim with registration, Natalia with pre op, Pamela Dina in the OR, Shannon in recovery, and Dr. Monaco with anesthesia. Thank you all again for such a great experience during and after surgery. I do have to give one shout out to everyone on Dr. Barker’s team from clinical team, administrative assistant, and surgery coordinator.Thank you all so so much.
Response from the owner: Thank you for taking the time to share such a detailed review in regards to your experience with us! We are so happy to learn of your positive experience with us. We love serving all of our patients and are honored to receive such wonderful feedback! Thanks again!
All in all I have had two very positive experiences at the Raleigh Orthopedic Surgery Center. I was surprised by the lack of attention when I arrived. It is not typical of every other experience I have had at the surgery center.
Dr Barker and his team were excellent! I am five days post op and feeling good.
Response from the owner: Thank you! We appreciate you posting a review and are happy to receive your positive feedback!
Great experience and my surgery was fast and successful. Thanks Dr. Dare and team
