The Advanced Center for Surgery Completes First Outpatient Total Joint Replacement Case

Provides Vero Beach Community with Convenient Health Care Options

Raleigh, N.C. and Vero Beach, Fla. – May 22, 2017 – The Advanced Center for Surgery, an ambulatory surgery center located in Vero Beach, Fla., completed its first outpatient total joint replacement case May 4, 2017. The procedure, a knee replacement performed by Robert Hill, DO, Vero Orthopaedics & Neurology, showcases the expert level of care now conveniently available to residents of Vero Beach.

Interest in outpatient orthopaedic procedures like this one are trending up across the nation. In fact, there was a 47 percent increase in elective outpatient hip and knee replacement procedures nationally between 2012 and 2015, and that upward trajectory is expected to continue. Orthopaedic patients traditionally limited to hospital settings find value in the medical and technological advances that now allow ASC facilities like The Advanced Center for Surgery to provide safe, high value alternatives while maintaining, and in many cases, enhancing patient outcomes.

“Successful completion of the center’s first outpatient total joint replacement case is a milestone our entire staff is celebrating,” said Dr. Hill. “The Advanced Center for Surgery delivers new options and best practices to patients in the Vero Beach community, and our team is honored to be part of that.”
