JRI Orthopaedics

Lessons on reducing length of stay and getting started with day case hip arthroplasty

Date: Thursday 13th August
Time: 18.00
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

Event details

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.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this educational presentation delegates should be able to:


  • Identify patients that may be suitable for day case/rapid recovery hip surgery.
  • Identify key anaesthetic and surgical factors to achieve day case/rapid recovery hip replacement.
  • List the recommendations for implementing a successful enhanced recovery programme for hip replacement.
  • Understand the importance of a focused multi-disciplinary team in reducing length of patient stay.
  • Recognise the potential pitfalls and complications of setting up a day case/rapid recovery hip replacement service.
