Optimizing Joint Arthroplasty in the ASC

Are you comfortable performing total hip arthroplasty using the anterior approach, but haven't made the leap to performing them in an outpatient setting? As outpatient total hip procedures become increasingly common, it's important to set yourself up for success when you transition this technique into your ASC. Join Dr. Nicholas Frisch to review his top considerations for introducing the Anterior hip approach into an ASC setting.

Learning Objectives:
      1.     Understand common challenges
              associated with introducing the
 Total Hip procedure
               into an ASC setting.

      2.     Understand the value
