    “I think SwiftPath is an opportunity for us to maximize efficiency for patients when they’re coming to the hospital or as an outpatient for their surgeries. We want to make the process of having a joint replacement as user-friendly for the patient as possible, the least amount of pain, the most efficiency getting them back home, getting them active again, and keeping their stay in the hospital as low as possible but also making sure that they have as good an outcome as we can possibly get them.”Kenneth Oates, MD - Mount Vernon, WA

    “I think one of the challenges facing us today is the disconnected and discontinuous care that our patients are getting. I think the SwiftPath Program really helps us connect all the dots, reduce the patient anxiety, combine that patient engagement with surgical expertise to get the value and the results that we’re all hoping to achieve.”Vinod Dasa, MD - New Orleans, LA

    “My knee has been killing me for the last year, who do I go see”, to the phone call to our office, evaluation, decision for surgery, to the surgery, and the specific plan for each patient. …… The education is what SwiftPath is always talking about, about getting the patient engaged, that is the real key.”Andrew Wickline, MD - Utica, NY

    “I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to see results like this. I feel so lucky to have been introduced to you and your team and to have the opportunity to work with you! This is a true testament to the SwiftPath Method.”Dana Desser, DO - Wellington, FL

    “SwiftPath has been very helpful for me because it actually increases the communication that I get with my patients. SwiftPath gives them one reference that answers all the questions.

    ”Part of the process of getting a successful outcome is to involve the family. We have set up JointCamps that not only involve the patient and their education, but also the caregiver who will help them through the rehabilitation process.” Perry Secor, MD - Los Alamitos, CA

    “SwiftPath uses a much more hands-on approach, because if we’re going to send people home, they need to have a lot more information and understanding about the process. With SwiftPath we have a cohesive program for the education of all our patients, not just our outpatients.”Daniel Hanesworth, MD - Anacortes, WA

    “I chose the SwiftPath Program because it’s proven to decrease surgical pain, the need for narcotics, less complications and readmission. It has also been shown to speed recovery.

    “In summary, SwiftPath helped me because I feel like I’m a better surgeon. I’m continuing to learn. I’m continuing to improve the way I do things in a process and I can track my results for patients. I think it’s better because patients have something that takes away the complications, gets them back to work quicker and has a chance of having a better long-term result when you combine it with the newer surgical techniques.”Doug Vermillion, MD - Anchorage, AK

    “This is a program for all arthroplasty. This allows people to understand the process. It lowers their anxiety. It lowers their risk. It improves patient outcomes and quality. It should be incorporated into every joint surgeon’s armamentarium for patients, no matter where they do the surgery.”Thomas Meade, MD - Allentown, PA

    “I think anyone who has an opportunity to use a Swift Path Dr. and then chooses another doctor is nuts. My knee replacement, with it’s 4” scar that can’t even be seen after one year, was amazing.
