New outpatient total hip and total knee replacement

Total hip or total knee replacement is traditionally considered an inpatient surgical procedure where you are in the hospital for an average of 3-4 days.

This is possible with recent advances in techniques, improved anesthesia and expedited rehabilitation protocols.
