Top 20 surgical centers for spine surgery
In the past couple of years, CMS has removed around 300 musculoskeletal procedures from the inpatient-only list. This means these procedures can now happen in surgical centers, which typically have a lower spine surgery cost.
Several factors have contributed to this change. The rise of minimally invasive surgical techniques played a significant role in initiating this shift to ambulatory surgical centers. Additionally, advancements in anesthesia and post-operative pain management have made it possible to perform major joint and spinal surgery in surgical centers.
