8 ASCs performing spine surgery


As spine surgeries become more popular in the ASC setting, some surgeons believe that these procedures may be the next great frontier for outpatient care. 

"The five-year horizon for spine surgery is for the trend toward outpatient surgery to continue as outcomes and efficacy are proven. I see continued improvements in minimally invasive lumbar spinal fusion surgery and arthroplasty will continue evolving. At some point we would expect Medicare to approve the same inpatient codes for instrumentation in the ASC," Mark Testaiuti, MD, surgeon at Coastal Spine in Mount Laurel, N.J., told Becker's
