Over the last 20 years, total joint replacement (TJR) surgery has undergone a significant evolution, leading to a growing trend of shifting cases to an outpatient setting at ambulatory surgery centers (ASC). Providers have led the charge out of the hospital and into the outpatient setting through advances in surgical approaches, anesthesia and pain management protocols, and patient education. The successful experience in the ASC has solidified the ASC as a proven alternative to traditional in-patient surgery.

Within the outpatient setting, MicroPort is committed to empowering providers with technologies and resources that drive patient satisfaction and operational efficiency throughout the episode of care.
