Hip and knee joint replacement surgery has traditionally been an inpatient procedure at a hospital, requiring a few days of recovery. However, outpatient total joint replacement surgery is now becoming more popular as a minimally invasive alternative.
Outpatient same-day total joint replacement surgery offers many benefits, including quicker recovery, the ability to return home on the same day of the procedure, reduced risk of infection, and lower costs. Furthermore, patients can comfortably recover in the safety of their own home.
Improving Quality of Life
Miller Orthopedic Specialists, located in the Omaha and Council Bluffs area, have successfully performed over 20,000 total procedures, including over 7,000 total joint replacements and over 5,000 minimally invasive procedures in the past 25 years.
Their expert surgeon, Dr. Boese, has performed over 250 same-day total joint replacements in the last five years. Additionally, the surgeon emphasizes the importance of safety and providing expedited rehabilitation protocols and physical therapy to ensure the best possible outcome for the patient. Finally, with the unique home nursing program, the care is brought to the patients, which is particularly beneficial during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Outpatient same-day total joint replacement surgery offers a safe and effective alternative for individuals seeking to improve their quality of life by reducing pain and increasing mobility.
