Operating a successful outpatient total joint replacement program

from Becker's ASC Review

The Total Joint Center of St. Louis, an affiliate of United Surgical Partners International, opened in 2014, with the first case performed in October of that same year. Since then, surgeons have performed more than 300 outpatient total joint replacements in the center. The 19,000 square-foot surgery center includes seven large operating rooms and nine private overnight rooms. "It's really taken off and been a fun project. There is a lot of physician involvement," says Doug Lashley, regional vice president for United Surgical Partners International. The physician owners developed the total joint replacement center along with Marshall | Steele™, who developed program protocols and patient education materials. "One of the things we learned is we need to educate the patients about leaving the surgery center the same day. We've explained the benefits of the outpatient setting to our patients and have been thrilled with the outcome." more
