Day Case Major Knee Surgery: ACL reconstructions to Total Knee replacements
Thursday 25th March 2021
With increasing pressure on the NHS, the drive to reduce length of stay and deliver as much activity as possible on a day case basis is a key national priority. Day Case major joint replacement surgery is now routine practice in a number of units across the UK. However, there remains huge variation in day case orthopaedic surgery across the country with some units still struggling to deliver ACL reconstruction surgery as a day case, yet others consistently have rates approaching 100%.
Come and learn how they did it, the obstacles they overcame and take the opportunity to transform your orthopaedic services.
Chair and confirmed speakers include:
Dr Kim Russon, President BADS, Consultant Anaesthetist, Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust
Dr Mary Stocker, Past President BADS, Consultant Anaesthetist, Torbay & South Devon Healthcare Trust
Mr Alex Anderson, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust
Mr Mike Kent, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Torbay & South Devon NHS Trust
