Becker’s Spine caught up with Dr. Srinivasan to discuss the shift to outpatient care for total hip and knee replacements
Anand Srinivasan, MD. Director of Anterior Hip Replacement Program at NorthShore Orthopaedic & Spine Institute (Gurnee and Glenview, Ill.): The shift to outpatient care for the orthopedic industry, specifically in the setting of joint replacement surgery including anterior total hip arthroplasty, means that practices and institutions will have to employ tools and devices that allow for remote monitoring and care in a scalable fashion. This may involve smart implants, braces, or other equipment that allow for communication and most importantly, identification of patients that may have postoperative concerns.
Dr. Srinivasan mentioned as one of top 10 orthopedic surgeons to know. Director of the Anterior Hip Program.

Today, people are living longer with optimistic expectations to remain active, productive and physically fit-at any age. NorthShore's Total Joint Replacement Center understands these expectations. Join Dr. Anand Srinivasan of our Orthopaedic Surgery Division as he answers your questions about joint pain, knee and hip surgery, and same day total joint replacement.
Growing numbers of Americans are outliving their joints. More than a million operations are done annually to replace worn-out knees and hips, and that number is expected to skyrocket in the coming decades as the population ages.
I negotiated the chairlift to the top of Snowmass without incident on a perfect blue-sky day in the Colorado Rockies. So far, so good. I took as deep a breath as a person can at 11,000 feet, pointed my skis downhill and made my first turn in the fluffy morning snow — on a brand-new titanium-and-plastic left knee.
Five years ago, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, an orthopedic surgeon in the Bronx who replaces more than 200 knees each year, would have considered it crazy to send a patient home the same day as a knee replacement operation.
And yet there he was this year, as the patient, home after a few hours. A physician friend pierced his skin at 8 a.m. at a Seattle-area surgery center. By lunch, Dr. Kirschenbaum was resting at his friend’s home, with no pain and a new knee.
