Outpatient Joint Replacement

Shorter stay. Faster recovery.

Cutting-edge joint replacement procedures and technology are available now at Florida Medical Clinic. An outpatient joint replacement may be an option for individuals who are considering surgery for an injured knee, hip, shoulder, ankle, wrist, or elbow. More convenient and efficient than traditional joint replacements requiring lengthy hospital stays, outpatient procedures are increasing in popularity among patients and practitioners, representing one of the latest advances in the field of orthopaedics.

We offer outpatient joint replacements at our state-of-the-art Ambulatory Surgery Centers. By providing you with access to the latest and most innovative orthopaedic procedures, our team has helped countless individuals find long-term pain relief and return to active and fulfilling lives.

Advantages of an outpatient joint replacement, as compared to a traditional (open) joint replacement, may include:

  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A lower risk of infection and other complications
  • A faster rehabilitation and return to daily activities

The actual procedure itself is similar for both traditional and outpatient joint replacements, with outpatient procedures incorporating more minimally invasive techniques to help achieve the benefits above. Following an outpatient replacement, you are monitored as you come out of anesthesia, then sent home the same day, provided that no additional monitoring is needed. You will recover from the comfort of your own home 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 complete your at-home recovery.
