WellSpan Health expanding same-day joint replacements

Orthopedic

Beginning Dec. 4, Hanover, Pa.-based WellSpan Health & Surgery Center will become the first ASC in the system to provide same-day total joint replacements for hips and knees. 

Procedures will be performed by orthopedic surgeon Albert Folgueras, MD, according to a Dec. 4 email sent to Becker's. 

The 80,000-square-foot WellSpan ASC provides more than a dozen primary care, specialty care, surgical and ambulatory services. 

In the last year, 21% of total joint replacements performed at WellSpan were on a same-day discharge basis.
