This week on The Beat, Editor in Chief Joel Dunning interviews Dr. Robert Cerfolio of NYU Langone Health. They discuss the importance of consistent communication at every touch point before surgery to achieve routine day one discharge after lobectomies anad day three discharge after cardiac surgery.
