Should I have my hip or knee surgery during COVID-19?

This is a question and concern for many patients right now. First and foremost, your safety and well-being is our primary concern. Deciding to have surgery is a big decision in itself, but when you are in pain and missing out on your quality of life, it’s not necessary to delay it because of COVID-19.

It is still the perfect time to move forward with your joint replacement. If you delay, there is the possibility of increasing your symptoms and pain and perhaps further deterioration of the joints or weakened muscles that surround them. One of the ways to move forward more safely is with an outpatient joint replacement. Dr. Boese explains, “Staying out of the hospital is now more important than ever. Protect yourself and have your surgery in a facility where you don’t have to worry about COVID-19 or infections.”

Outpatient Total Joint Replacement Surgery

Outpatient total joint replacement surgery is now more common and is often preferred for a minimally invasive alternative. At Miller Orthopedic Specialists, our physicians provide same-day total joint replacement surgeries at the Advanced Surgery Center. This facility does not treat those sick with COVID-19, and every precaution is taken to prevent the spread of the virus and ensure the facility remains a safe environment for patients and staff.
