While a vast majority of workers' compensation cases do not require surgery, some cases are surgical, and the real cost savings are in utilizing GulfCoast Surgery Center on our Sarasota campus. Not only are the routine extremity surgeries and procedures associated with general orthopedics performed at our facility, but GulfCoast Surgery Center regularly performs pain management procedures, spine surgeries (such as Anterior Cervical Discectomies and Fusions, Transforaminal Interbody Fusions, and Lumbar Discectomies and Fusions) and Knee Replacements, and Hip Replacements. The surgeries are +40% cheaper than in the hospital, but when calculating overnight hospital stays and Medicare set-asides, the cost savings of sending your patients to GulfCoast Surgery Center are exponential.
