Anterior hip replacement outcomes Surgical approaches for total hip replacement Surgeons and researchers at Hospital for Special Surgery, where more knee replacements and hip surgeries are performed than at any other hospital in the United States, continually work to improve upon the success of joint replacement surgery by developing, evaluating and refining existing and new surgical procedures and processes.

Medicare did not count cases where the patient was scheduled to return to the hospital, such as when a lung cancer patient was admitted for pneumonia and later came back for a chemotherapy treatment that had been planned.
