The Advanced Center for Surgery (ACS) has developed clinical protocols specifically designed to support outpatient total joint replacement surgery for qualified patients.

This means ACS and its credentialed surgeons from Vero Orthopaedics, can maximize the value it brings to the Vero Beach and Sebastian communities.
Outpatient total joints represent a growing trend in the industry. There was a 47 percent increase in elective outpatient hip and knee replacement procedures nationally between 2012 and 2015. Additionally, it is estimated that volumes knee and hip replacement procedures will increase 457 percent and 633 percent, respectively, over the next decade.1 Total shoulder replacement should follow a similar trend, with an increasing number of procedures being conducted in the outpatient setting, many of which will migrate to the convenient, same-day surgery setting of a freestanding surgery center.
