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. 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.
