Total joints are rapidly migrating to the outpatient arena and represent a growth opportunity for ASCs, but adding cases doesn’t automatically equate to excellent outcomes and profitability. You need to work with high-volume surgeons, and have built-in efficiencies and protocols in place to deliver safe and cost-effective patient care.
Adolph V. Lombardi Jr., MD, FACS, will tell you how to achieve those goals during an exclusive workshop on the third day of Virtual OR Excellence. Dr. Lombardi is the president of JIS Orthopedics, the practice that runs White Fence Surgical Suites ASC in New Albany, Ohio. The center’s surgeons perform an average of 12 joint replacements each day, and completed the 12,000th replacement performed at the facility in June.
Dr. Lombardi will tap into his extensive expertise and innovative ideas in minimally invasive surgical techniques during what’s sure to be an informative and engaging discussion. “A typical ASC might not be structured to handle total joints,” says Dr. Lombardi. “I’ll be going over the basic requirements needed to launch an effective program, and how to advance existing programs.”
Here’s a slice of what Dr. Lombardi will discuss during the workshop.
