The vision for Great Lakes Surgery Center started many years ago. Our goal of providing seamless state of the art compassionate eye surgery for our patients is at the heart of building this center. We have worked for over 25 years integrally with Lakeland Regional Hospital System and very much appreciated their commitment to high quality surgical care.  Even as we open our center, we will continue to partner with Lakeland for eye surgery cases in Niles as well as all of our surgical retinal cases.

In our new center, we look forward to being able to continue to provide high quality eye surgery with compassion and integrity. This center will specialize specifically and only in eye surgery.  We will be able to expand our offerings even more while controlling costs even more. We plan to provide an expanded cataract surgery package including toric, multifocal and extended depth of field lens implants. In addition, we will be providing the Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery.  

Besides traditional surgical treatments for glaucoma, we will be offering newer minimally invasive glaucoma surgery such as the iStent which is currently placed at the time of cataract surgery. This area of glaucoma surgery is currently expanding quite rapidly and we will offer the proven surgical methods that are appropriate for each patient individually.

We will provide many eyelids procedures at our center including upper and lower lid blepharoplasties, ectropion and entropion repair, ptosis repair and removal of lesions including cancer reconstructions for basal cell cancer.  

We will be providing excellent anesthesia care as well with monitored IV sedation for most cases. Most general anesthesia cases will be still performed at Lakeland Hospital.
