Outpatient Surgery

Outpatient Surgery a publication and site which offers information on products and business practices in the outpatient or ambulatory surgery center market. Centers like these are a growing source of business for Linvatec. Surgery centers may be owned by a group of doctors, rather than a hospital system, which only increased the decision making power of the surgeons in these instances, since they have a direct stake in the center's profitability.

One particularly relevant recent article was titled "How to get what you need from HD". Reading up on resources like these is advantageous for current reps and prospective candidates alike.

Do you know what percentage of outpatient surgery is performed in a center owned by physicians (vs. hospital)?
