Leading Edge Solutions

For Today’s Most Pressing Perioperative Challenges

Implementing Total Joint Arthroplasty Same Day Discharge Programs in Hospital & ASC Settings

By 2025, the annual number of total knee arthroplasty is predicted to increase by 110% to 1,272,000 replacements. Similarly, the demand for hip arthroplasty is also projected to spike, increasing by 75% to 652,000 replacements.

Successfully Transitioning Total Joint Replacement Cases from Inpatient to Outpatient

For now, coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to wreak havoc on total joint replacement (TJR) surgery programs across the country. Many states and health systems are again restricting inpatient elective surgery which is the financial engine for many hospitals. With standardized process mapping and implementation of clinical pathways, outpatient TJR can be safe and effective for many patients.
