Out Patient Joint Replacement
Outpatient joint replacement, also known as same-day surgery, is an alternative route that patients can take to avoid an overnight stay at the hospital post-surgery. This option allows the appropriate patient to receive joint replacement surgery in an ambulatory surgical center, while being given clearance to return home in under 24 hours. Surgical procedures and techniques of outpatient care do not differ from their inpatient counterparts. The simple change of location gives patients the opportunity to return home while ensuring the same level of recovery and rehabilitation.
