Oregon Outpatient Surgery Center to Offer Surgical Program for Veterans

Share on Facebook
The Oregon Outpatient Surgery Center in Tigard is coordinating with orthopedic surgeon Richard Edelson, MD, to launch a free surgery program for local veterans in need of care.

Through the Save Our Veterans: Surgery Center Assistance for Veterans program, one day each quarter the Oregon Outpatient Surgery Center will provide free surgical care for veterans with pressing medical issues.

The surgery center will work with veterans groups to identify candidates. The preoperative care, surgery and postoperative care will be provided at no charge to the patients.

“I strongly believe that every veteran deserves the highest quality healthcare. My own father was a WWII vet.  The privileges and success we enjoy today are due to the prior sacrifices of others. We need to pay that debt forward,” said Dr. Edelson.

The program is expected to officially launch in July.
