US outpatient surgical procedures have been growing gradually over the past few years due to the steady migration of patients from acute care settings. It is estimated that at the end of 2010, outpatient procedures were greater than 50% of all US surgeries, a significant increase over 2000 estimates of 33%. The total number of US procedures is projected to increase at a low single-digit rate, with the number of outpatient surgeries reaching 65% to 70% of the total by the end of 2017.
