TECHNIQUE matters.

College athletes and others continue to seek Dr. Gautsch for highly successful arthroscopic shoulder labral and instability repair, and arthroscopic knee cartilage and ACL surgery.


LOCATION matters.

BlueCross BlueShield has reached an agreement with Indian Lake Surgery Center to be one of their first PREFERRED Outpatient Surgery Centers for Joint Replacement and other surgeries. This includes all BlueCross BlueShield and Anthem patients from across the country.
