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. 

Outpatient total hip and total knee replacements are alternative procedures that allow patients to go home the same day of surgery. This is possible with recent advances in techniques, improved anesthesia and expedited rehabilitation protocols.

For a consultation with Dr. Boese, please schedule an appointment at one of his clinic locations to see if you are a candidate for outpatient total hip or total knee replacement. 

Watch Dr. Boese’s interview on WOWT’s Omaha Everyday. He talked with Dave Webber about outpatient hip and knee replacement, as well as the safety measures and benefits. Watch Dr. Boese’s appearance on KMTV’s Morning Blend discussing outpatient total knee replacement.

Direct Superior Approach

Direct Superior Approach Hip Replacement is an alternative to traditional hip replacement surgeries. This spares muscles and soft tissue due to a small incision which allows patients to recover faster.

BIRMINGHAM HIP (BHR) Resurfacing System

An alternative to total hip replacement. Younger active male patients who suffer from hip pain due to non-inflammatory arthritis (degenerative joint disease) such as osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, avascular necrosis, or dysplasia/DDH, or inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis, may benefit from the bone-conserving approach of the BIRMINGHAM HIP Resurfacing System (BHR).
