ABSTRACT
The article discusses how hospitals in the U.S. can speed up the surgical process for joint replacements without sacrificing safety. The demand for joint replacements is expected to increase while surgeons decrease in number. Joint replacements centers are advised to lessen variability to improve quality and increase the volume of replacements than can be done in a given day, as well as minimize the length of hospitalization of patients.
