DNV offers a line of advanced orthopedic certification services to meet the specific needs of ambulatory surgery centers

Orthopedic surgery has experienced many innovations over recent years, to include the performance of joint replacement and spine surgeries on an out-patient basis. This has resulted in a greater need for ambulatory settings where evidence-based and high quality care are achieved.

An ambulatory surgery center can become a DNV Center of Excellence by achieving at least 3 of the above certifications.
