Starting at 7:30am, Dr. Alejandro Badia, masks up before speaking with one of his first patients of the day. In an effort to be efficient with his time and keep surgical costs down for his patients, Dr. Badia, runs three operating rooms simultaneously, moving from one OR to another. Badia said he will average around 14 surgeries a day when he has a full surgical schedule.
We have the capability to create a health system that can deliver higher quality, less costly care for the ultimate benefit of our patients. What is needed now is a paradigm shift in thinking and attitude by both the public and third-party payers,” Dr. Badia says. “Indeed, health care can be effectively – and safely — delivered outside the hospital.”
Dr. Badia credits improvements in minimally invasive surgical techniques and continuing enhancements of high-tech tools, including robotic instruments, augmented reality, and 3-D printed implants, for facilitating surgeons’ ability to perform more complex joint operations effectively outside expensive hospital operating rooms.
