Outpatient Surgery

Outpatient Joint Replacement Surgery, Out is the New IN

Outpatient Joint Replacement Surgery

Traditionally, joint replacement surgery is an inpatient procedure carried out in the hospital with a three- to four-night hospital stay. Improvements in surgical technique, as well as anesthesia, pain management, and joint replacement implant technology, have made it feasible for Coastal Orthopedics’ physicians and surgeons to perform these procedures as an outpatient procedure for select patients.

Our Musculoskeletal Ambulatory Surgery Center offers same-day outpatient surgery and features the latest in cutting-edge medical equipment and surgical devices to allow our physicians to perform the most effective techniques for each case.

Our trained and board-certified physicians are nationally-recognized experts, ensuring your surgery goes smoothly. Recovery at home is faster, safer and generally less expensive so you can get back to your life sooner.

Advanced Surgical Techniques

Advances in orthopedic surgical techniques have increased the number of surgical procedures that can be performed as outpatient surgery. Remarkably, this includes hip, knee and shoulder replacements.

It’s estimated that more than 900,000 knee, 900,000 hip, and 53,000 shoulder replacements are performed in the U.S. each year, most commonly because of arthritic or worn-out joints.

Can Hip and Knee Replacement be an Outpatient Surgery?

Same-day outpatient joint replacement is not for everyone. However, for the right candidates having a hip, knee or shoulder replacement procedure in an outpatient surgery center instead of the hospital has many benefits.

What are the Benefits of Outpatient Surgery?

At Coastal Orthopedics, we have one outpatient surgery center. The benefits of an ambulatory surgery are:

  • Less expensive: Having your surgery at our outpatient surgery center generally costs less than the same procedure at a hospital, where you must consider the cost of a hospital stay.
  • Works around your schedule: At a hospital, scheduled surgery can be delayed by emergencies. At our outpatient surgery center, you can book your surgery and the procedure will be performed the day it is scheduled.
  • More comfortable: Outpatient surgery is less stressful than inpatient surgery and the convenience of recovering in your home can make recovery time much easier for both you and your family.
