As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 epidemic, encouraging trends in new cases in the region have allowed our facilities to resume surgical procedures. The situation continues to evolve fluidly, and we are maintaining best practices to keep our patients and employees as safe as possible.

We have resumed our surgical practice at Sutter Roseville Medical Center, Sutter Surgical Hospital North Valley, and West Coast Joint and Spine. Rigorous screening protocols have been instituted at all of these facilities in order to ensure that our patients and providers are kept safe during (and after) surgery.

Additionally, we have resumed seeing patients in our Roseville office. We continue to manage most of our practice through video and telephone encounters in order to minimize patient volume in the office. This allows us to continue evaluating urgent patient needs in the office, while observing social distancing guidelines. If you do have an appointment in the office, we do ask that you wear a mask and we will also conduct a temperature screen upon your arrival.

Our phone lines remain open 24/7. Please continue to reach out to us if anything regarding your treatment plan is unclear.
