Fremont Orthopaedics to offer new outpatient surgery options

    Outpatient Surgical Treatment at Western Wyoming Medical Center

    The surgeons at Fremont Orthopaedics, Drs. Ben Francisco and Cory Lamblin, are well known to many Fremont County residents who have received orthopaedic care at their clinics or the local hospitals. Both orthopaedic surgeons are board-certified and fellowship-trained and have extensive experience in rural settings and major trauma centers. They have chosen to live in Fremont County because they love the small-town lifestyle and care deeply about the communities we all call home. The team at Fremont Orthopaedics is passionate about helping Fremont County residents access excellent orthopaedic care close to home.

    Drs. Francisco and Lamblin are pleased to announce plans to expand their practice by offering outpatient orthopaedic surgeries at Western Wyoming Medical (WWM). Western Wyoming Medical is a new and modern ambulatory surgery center located at 535 East Main Street in Lander.

    This ambulatory surgery center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care and offers patients the opportunity to receive same-day surgical care in a comfortable outpatient setting. The procedures performed at WWM incorporate state-of-the-art technology and instrumentation. The surgeons are assisted by specialized and experienced registered nurses and surgical staff who are dedicated to providing compassionate and individualized patient care.

    Patients and their families will benefit from the quality, convenience, and accessibility of the surgical treatments offered at WWM. Ambulatory surgery centers also offer many patients more cost-effective options for surgical care. Drs. Lamblin and Francisco believe that WWM will be key in advancing affordable healthcare options for patients from Fremont County and the surrounding regions.

    At this time, Drs. Francisco and Lamblin are offering minor procedures that can be performed under local anesthesia (injection of numbing medication) at Western Wyoming Medical Center. The surgeries currently offered include:

    • Carpal tunnel release
    • Cubital tunnel release
    • Trigger finger release
    • Cyst removals
    • Nailbed repair
    • Tendon repair
    • Laceration repair
    • Other select procedures typically involving the hand, arm, or foot

    This summer, we plan to expand our surgical offerings to a more comprehensive array of orthopedic procedures, including:

    • Fracture fixation
    • Hand, wrist, and elbow surgeries
    • Shoulder surgery and arthroscopy, including rotator cuff, tendon, and labrum repairs
    • Knee surgery and arthroscopy, including ligament and meniscal procedures
    • Additional musculoskeletal procedures
