Dr. Yavorek Lawrence +Memorial Surgery


Lawrence + Memorial Hospital offers full-service surgery programs for both inpatient and outpatient procedures. All surgical procedures at L+M are performed by board-certified surgeons to ensure patient safety, comfort and the best possible outcomes.

We offer same-day or next-day consultation appointments. Using the latest proven techniques and technologies, including minimally invasive surgery and targeted anesthesia applications, we can help reduce the size of an incision and scarring after surgery as well as quicker, pain-free recovery.

Community Approach

From the surgeon and professional nursing staff who supervise your care, to the friendly volunteers who offer a wide range of personalized comfort measures, you are our highest priority. We strive to provide personal attention and compassionate care to our patients. It’s this personal touch provided by a team of healthcare providers that sets us apart from other hospitals.

Same-Day Surgery

L+M and Westerly Hospitals offer convenient access to skilled specialists and advanced healthcare treatments closer to home. Pequot Health Center features a full-service Emergency Department, same-day surgery, laboratory services, diagnostic imaging, outpatient rehabilitation and occupational health services. The Center provides patients with the same quality care using the same state-of-the-art technology you would expect at the main campus, at a smaller scale facility in your neighborhood.

Robotic Surgery Destination

At L+M, the da Vinci® Surgical System enhances surgical capabilities, providing superior visualization and greater precision allowing surgeons to perform even complex surgery using 1-2 cm. incisions. L+M surgeons offer minimally invasive treatment options to patients for general surgery as well as gynecologic and urological procedures.
