Seaside Surgery Center reports dramatic increase in joint replacement surgeries

January totals largest monthly caseload since inception

NAPLES, Florida (March 11, 2022) — Seaside Surgery Center, a Naples-based ambulatory surgery center (ASC) designed primarily for outpatient joint replacement surgeries, saw its production numbers increase dramatically with the completion of 80 joint replacement surgeries in January of 2022. This was a 233% increase over January of 2021, and a 48% increase over November 2021, the busiest month of the recent year.

“We have seen healthy growth year-over-year, since opening in late 2015,” explains Seaside administrator Cindy Schuetz, R.N., “with only a slight dip during 2020. Our case numbers for 2021 are astonishing, representing a 129% increase over 2020!”

Seaside has completed over 1,100 outpatient joint replacement surgeries, 44% of which were total hip replacements; 29% total knee replacements; and 27% partial knee replacements.

Other procedures conducted at Seaside include arthroscopies; treatment of fractures; bunionectomies, hammer toe correction and various other foot and ankle procedures; and multiple hand procedures such as carpel tunnel repair and trigger finger repair.  A team of more than 15 highly experienced nurses and administration staff assists the center’s nine surgeon-partners and visiting surgeons.
