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 patient to receive joint replacement surgery in an ambulatory surgical center, while being given clearance to return home in under 24 hours.
Outpatient ambulatory care and service is growing in popularity. This alternative approach to joint replacement surgery rewards the patient with many benefits previously unavailable with inpatient treatment. Not only can patients return home following surgery, it’s more cost-effective as well. Outpatient surgery lowers the pricey out-of-pocket expenses one might see from extended stays in a hospital and through the recovery process.
If you decide to utilize outpatient joint replacement, IBJI will ensure you receive the same high-quality multidisciplinary care, despite the shorter medical visit.
