Daniel Chan, MD, performed the first outpatient hip replacement procedures in Florida's Broward County, at the Cypress Creek Outpatient Surgical Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Dr. Chan uses the anterior approach for hip replacement surgery, which allows patients to recover faster. Patients are sent home three hours after surgery and are up and moving within an hour after their procedure.

Surgeons uses the Hana orthopedic table during surgery, which provides live X-rays and navigation.

The ASC is partnered with the Memorial Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine.
