Outpatient Anterior Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement
Dr. Christopher Vinton performs hip and knee replacements that are deemed appropriate for an outpatient setting. Patients check in at The Surgery Center in the morning and go home to recuperate in the comfort of their own home by the afternoon.
Benefits of Outpatient Hip & Knee Replacement
There are several potential benefits to having your hip or knee replacement done in an outpatient setting. Most patients would prefer to recover in the comfort of their own homes, rather than in a hospital.
In addition to generally enhancing the patient’s overall experience, recovering at home and avoiding a hospital stay may offer several benefits, including:
- Faster return to normal activities
- Possible reduced risk of hospital acquired infections
- Possible reduced risk of hospital readmission and postsurgical complications
- Potential cost savings when compared to an inpatient procedure/recovery
