Outpatient Joint Replacement Surgery at Florida Medical Clinic’s Ambulatory Surgery Center
An outpatient joint replacement may be an option for certain individuals who are considering surgery for an injured knee, hip, shoulder, ankle, wrist, or elbow. More convenient and efficient than traditional joint replacements, which often involve lengthy hospital stays, outpatient procedures are increasing in popularity among patients and practitioners, representing one of the latest advances in the field of orthopedics.
At Florida Medical Clinic, we offer outpatient joint replacements at our state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center. By providing our patients with access to the latest and most innovative orthopedic procedures, our team has helped countless individuals find long-term pain relief and return to active and fulfilling lives.
The potential advantages of an outpatient joint replacement, as compared to a traditional (open) joint replacement, include:
- A shorter hospital stay
- A lower risk of infection and other complications
- A faster rehabilitation and return to daily activities
The procedure itself is similar for both traditional and outpatient joint replacements, with outpatient procedures incorporating minimally invasive techniques to help achieve the above outcomes. Following an outpatient replacement, patients are monitored as they come out of anesthesia, then sent home the same day, provided that no additional monitoring is needed. Patients then recover in their own homes while actively participating in post-operative rehabilitation plans. Your Florida Medical Clinic surgeon will provide you with all of the comprehensive support you need to plan for and complete your at-home recovery.
