In OR Manager’s February 2018 issue, Troy Sparks, BSN, RN, CNOR, Regional Vice President and Total Joint Program Coordinator, AMSURG, shared advice on developing a high-quality total joint replacement program in ambulatory surgery centers (ASC). In the article titled, “Total joints present increasingly attractive option for ASCs,” he stressed the importance of physician leaders, strict patient eligibility criteria and patient education.

Sparks worked closely with Surgery Center of Long Beach, an AMSURG partner, to develop the program. In 2017, the center became the first ASC in the U.S. to receive a Center of Excellence Award in Orthopaedic Certification by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care.
