Lessons on reducing length of stay and getting started with day case hip arthroplasty
Date: Thursday 13th August
Duration: 40 minutes
Mr. Simon Newman, Consultant Orthopaedic Hip and Knee SurgeonNuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford
Mr. Rohit Rambani, Hip and Knee Reconstructive Surgeon, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust
Outline: COVID-19 has stretched hospital budgets, increased surgical waiting time and reduced patient willingness to attend and stay in hospital. With the growing evidence in support of enhanced recovery programmes getting patients back to health more quickly, whilst receiving the best possible care, there has never been a more appropriate time to roll out rapid recovery pathways and even day case surgery for hip replacement.
This webinar presents two approaches to reducing length of stay in two different NHS settings. We will learn how Mr Simon Newman and team have recently made day case surgery in Oxford a reality with their patient selective strategy in an elective setting under new COVID restrictions, and how Mr Rohit Rambani and team have dramatically reduced length of stay in two non-specialist settings in Lincolnshire, with a non-selective but strict protocol.
By the end of this educational presentation delegates should be able to:
Mr Simon Newman is a double fellowship trained consultant hip and knee surgeon with a large practice treating patients with hip and knee arthritis.
He has a specialist interest in treating young adults with hip pain and particular expertise in the treatment femoroacetabular impingement and labral tears using keyhole surgery. He has recently begun day case total hip replacement at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford with some promising results.
Mr Rohit Rambani is a Hip and Knee Reconstructive Surgeon at United Lincolnshire Hospital NHS Trust. He completed his higher surgical training in Yorkshire and completed further training in hip and knee arthroplasty and a soft tissue knee fellowship in Toronto, Bristol and Leeds.
Mr Rambani’s clinical and research endeavours have centred on hip and knee reconstruction. He has a PhD from University of Hull in simulation and computer sciences. His interests include the expansion of knee and hip arthroscopic techniques to deal with sports injuries, uncemented hip and knee prosthetic technology, new bearing surfaces and outcome assessment in hip, knee and revision arthroplasty and use of allografting and other transplant and stem cell techniques in hip and knee reconstruction.
He has worked extensively on enhanced recovery and is regularly doing 24 hour joint replacements in ULHT. He has presented and published widely on key aspects of orthopaedics and is on the editorial board of many journals. Mr Rambani has also published a book on a ‘boot camp’ approach to surgical training.
