Outpatient Joint Replacement

In most cases, total joint replacement was performed only in an inpatient setting, increasing hospital admissions and stays while patients recovered. But through outpatient settings, patients can be discharged home the same day of their surgery. Dr. Jaime Hernandez can perform joint replacement surgery in an outpatient setting using the latest anesthetics, techniques, and preoperative safety measures.

How We Perform Outpatient Joint Replacement

When considering outpatient procedures for your joints, it’s essential to take in all factors when discussing this option with Dr. Hernandez. Overall, outpatient joint replacement provides many benefits to traditional, inpatient procedures, including:

  • Convenience and Comfort: Through the convenience of outpatient care, Dr. Hernandez can work to minimize disruption to your daily routine with outpatient joint replacement, as you can return home on the same day of the surgery.
  • Reduced Risk of Infection: Because outpatient settings are generally associated with lower rates of surgical site infections, this means that it decreases exposure to hospital-associated pathogens.
  • Faster Recovery and Rehabilitation: This option allows for early mobilization, active participation in physical therapy, and a quicker return to normal activities for patients considering outpatient joint replacement.
  • Personalized Care and Attention: Through our care, we can closely monitor your progress throughout the outpatient joint replacement process and offer accessible and responsive support to address any questions or concerns you may have.
