Outpatient Hip Replacement

With advanced perioperative techniques, it is now possible to perform total hip replacement on an outpatient basis, where the patient goes home on the same day. Outpatient hip surgery uses the same implants as traditional surgery, but involves a smaller incision and newer exposure techniques when compared to the traditional procedure. This type of surgery is less invasive to the tissues and bones and involves a significantly shorter stay, where the patient can go home the same day.
