Children’s Minnesota resumes outpatient services in Minnetonka after 2-year break

The Children’s Minnesota Minnetonka Surgery and Specialty Center says it is resuming outpatient procedures Tuesday after a two-year pandemic hiatus.

Hospital officials say the procedures returning include those to treat ear, nose and throat conditions; eyes disorders; oral and dental needs; general surgical needs; and urology-related issues.

The hospital says ultrasounds, general X-rays and MRIs have also returned for outpatients.

“The center’s reopening is more than a sign of a return to normal from the pandemic – having this facility back allows Children’s Minnesota to balance outpatient surgeries between our St. Paul, Minneapolis and Minnetonka campuses to care for our patients and their families throughout the region,” said Dr. Tim Lander, Children’s Minnesota clinical vice president and chief of surgery.

Although the Minnetonka surgery center was subject to pandemic modifications, the hospital adds gynecology, neurosurgery, cardiology, diabetes and endocrinology remained open over the last few years.
