At the 2023 AAHKS Annual Meeting, the chair of the Digital Health & Social Media Committee Shaun P. Patel, MD and Andrew M. Schwartz, MD sat down with Jeffrey J. Barry, MD to discuss his paper, uniquely titled “Early Outcomes of “Lemon Dropped” Complex Primary Arthroplasty Patients to a Tertiary Care Center.” In this podcast, Dr. Barry shared that his study was comprised of patients that were considered “complex or complicated” patients and rejected elsewhere for various reasons, whether it was for medical or surgical reasons. His findings indicated that resource burdens doubled with these patients – double the time in the OR, double the time spent in the ED afterwards and double the length of stay time. 

Listen to the recording for more on Dr. Barry’s findings. Enjoy, and thanks for listening to AAHKS Amplified!
