Outpatient Joint Replacement Physicians and Orthopedic Surgeons
As modern medicine has advanced, people are able to live longer and healthier lives, and joint pain from hip and knee arthritis shouldn't hold anyone back from leading their active lifestyles. Sometimes, nonsurgical management is not enough to achieve adequate relief. This is where a hip or knee joint replacement can greatly improve quality of life, restore mobility, and decrease discomfort from arthritis. With a hip or knee joint replacement, the portions of arthritis are removed and replaced with a hip or knee implant to allow for smooth, pain-free movement.
One of the more recent and exciting advances has been the introduction of outpatient total joint replacement surgery, and our total joint surgeons have been at the forefront of this field. Patients are now able to safely have a knee or hip replacement and be back in the comforts of their own home the same day. Advances in minimally invasive surgical techniques, anesthesia, implant technology, and rehabilitation have allowed people to quickly get back to their recreation, hobbies, and daily life without the pain of arthritis.
