“For most people, the prospect of surgery is unsettling. My desire is to help my patients through surgery in the most supportive manner. I will listen to your symptoms, and I will review your imaging and laboratory studies to determine the optimal treatment. If surgery is needed, we will work with you through all stages of the process, so that you can recover well and return to your normal activities.” 

Dr. Wright established Meridian Surgery Center (MSC) in 2001, providing the first private center for general surgery offering minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures in Pierce County.

In March 2011, he expanded MSC and also opened the Cascade Hernia Institute (CHI). With numerous articles in all areas of hernia-related surgeries to his credit, Dr. Wright and his instutute bring research opportunities to area students and offer the latest surgical techniques to his patients.

“This center offers surgical procedures for my patients in a private setting with an experienced and friendly RN staff, Board Certified Anesthesiologists, and top-notch, personalized care for day surgical procedures.”

Meridian Surgery Center, an ambulatory (out-patient) surgery center, may be suitable for your surgical needs.  And whether at MSC or at one of the hospitals where Dr. Wright has privileges, after surgery, Dr. Wright and his staff will guide your care and follow up until you’ve completed your healing process.
