Ambulatory Orthopedic Surgery Centers
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 surgery centers at Pointe West and East Surgery Center offer same-day out-patient surgery and feature the latest in cutting-edge medical equipment and surgical devices to allow our physicians to perform the most effective techniques for each case. The surgery centers also feature dedicated rooms for our doctors to perform pain management procedures for chronic neck, back and joint pain.
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 Orthopedic Surgery 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 500,000 knee, 250,000 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 Some Common Outpatient Surgery Procedures?
Outpatient surgery procedures offered at Coastal Orthopedics:

What are the Benefits of Outpatient Surgery?
At Coastal Orthopedics, we have two outpatient surgery centers. 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.
