Hear From Our Physician and facility Champions

Through the myJOINT Health Rapid Recovery Program implementations, we have had the privilege of working with many surgeons and anesthesiologists to bring safe, reliable, and cost-effective joint replacement procedures to the short-stay setting. The patient outcomes and testimonials from our surgeons speak for themselves. Here is what they have to say:

They [USPI] had protocols and guidelines in place to make sure we were not only [providing] excellent medical care, we were operating and taking care of the right patient, in the right setting … USPI provided us the roadmap so we could do joint replacement safely …

Gary S. Simon, M.D., Medical Director for Northwest Georgia Orthopaedic Surgery Center

We owe the success of the Total Joint Program at Resurgens Surgery Center to our surgeons, the preparations, and to the education and support from the joint program implementation team. Although we had heard of other centers performing these cases, it seemed far-fetched that a patient would have a joint replaced, walk 150 feet and up and down a flight of stairs, and be discharged home within hours of their surgery. The joint program implementation team … let the staff know how important each one of them was to the success of the patient. They reassured the staff that safety was the primary concern, allowing the staff to express themselves and question the success of these cases in other centers. The Joint Program Implementation Team educated and reassured us this was possible and we were the team to do this.

Anne Liney, RN, Administrator Resurgens Surgical Center

The [myJOINT Health Rapid Recovery] Program through USPI has strong advantages … USPI provides the larger picture. They provide up-to-date research so we know what is happening in the medical community and that makes a big difference.

Tootie Kelley, Joint Program Coordinator Northwest Georgia Surgery Center

Convenience, safety, and comfort for the patient: The top three reasons to explore outpatient joint replacement.

Robert A. Kelly, M.D., Orthopedic Surgeon

It’s really a patient-centered approach. They [patients] wanted to get into a situation where they could control when they go home, how they did their therapy, and how they got back to their activities … It’s really worked out, as we’ve tracked our data, that patients are getting back to their activities in about 35 to 50% of the time they did when they were in the inpatient setting… Your patients are going to tell you: The outpatient experience is better for them.

USPI helped us with implementation and also that we followed best practices with all of our decision-making; all of our protocols, and all of our prior to, during, and after surgery decisions.

Freddy A. Achecar, Jr., M.D., Orthopaedic Surgeon 

The reason this program is valuable is the relationship with USPI.
