    Summary: The approach to total hip and total knee arthroplasty is changing around the world. There is now a strong emphasis on a more rapid recovery and on more outpatient surgery. Each step of the process is now being modified with more thorough pre-operative evaluations, streamlined surgical approaches, rapid mobilization and faster return to normal activities. These changes place new pressures on all of the health care providers in the system. This unique text - the first of its kind - is a practical guide for each member of the clinical team with updates by the leading authorities from around the country. Each chapter addresses a specific issue and will outline the important new items that need to be addressed, very similar to a handbook. Topics covered include the implementation of new payment models and outcome measurements, recommendations to streamline the pre-, peri- and post-operative protocols, the utility and application of outpatient joint replacement programs, multimodal pain management and post-acute rehabilitation strategies. There is no publication at present that addresses all of these items together in one convenient place. Rapid Recovery in Total Joint Arthroplasty is written and edited by experienced clinicians and surgeons, sharing their years of experience to create a practical, up-to-date text useful for everyday work. .
