Steamboat Surgery Center in Steamboat Springs, Colo., logged its first outpatient total knee replacement Oct. 6, according to co-owner Alexander Meininger, MD.

Steamboat Surgery Center is 50-50 partnership between Steamboat Springs-based Steamboat Orthopaedic & Spine Institute and Denver-based UCHealth, managed and developed with the help of Deerfield, Ill.-based Surgical Care Affiliates.

"Outpatient surgery is the future of cost-effective quality care in Northwest Colorado," Dr. Meininger wrote on LinkedIn. In addition to co-owning Steamboat Surgery Center, Dr. Meininger serves as managing partner of SOSI.

Robert Carrera, SCA's vice president of operations, called the procedure "a great milestone" and "a fantastic new healthcare option for the residents of Routt County."
