Same-Day Surgery: Transitioning to Outpatient Total Joints

The intent of this program is to provide rationale and discuss innovative methods used to perform outpatient total joint procedures. Course faculty will share their experiences transitioning to same-day surgery. Topics addressed include but are not limited to patient selection, pain management, reimbursement considerations, blood management, and utilization of physical therapy to optimize patient outcomes.
