Whether you’re sitting, standing, walking, or bending, your hips and knees are fundamental components of your daily life. When you experience pain that prevents you from participating in the activities you enjoy, then it may be time to consider an outpatient joint replacement.
An outpatient joint replacement is a joint replacement surgery that incorporates minimally invasive techniques and is performed in a surgery center instead of a hospital setting. Because of this, patients have same-day discharge and can start physical therapy immediately.
Outpatient joint replacement procedures provide patients with the following benefits:
- Faster recovery time
- Lower cost compared to traditional joint replacement surgery
- No overnight stay
- Reduced risk of infection
- The ability to start recovery from the comfort of home after surgery
