Total Joint Replacement – What You Need to Know
September 22, 2016
Campbell Clinic Orthopaedics has redefined the total joint replacement experience for patients through its outpatient procedure.
Total joint replacement is becoming more and more popular, and with new methods and effective pain management tools, our specialists have been able to decrease the need for inpatient surgery. More than 700,000 knee replacement procedures and more than 330,000 hip replacements are performed annually in the U.S. These numbers are excepted to continue growing over the next 15 years.
Patients who meet the qualifications for outpatient surgery are able to have their surgery performed and be back home that same day. In addition to being back home and in your own bed the same day as your surgery, there are other advantages to the outpatient surgery:
- Safe, cost-effective surgical care – often costs 50 percent less than inpatient
- Improved patient comfort
- Increased efficiency
- Low complication rates resulting in less money spent on health care to fix those issues
We offer outpatient surgery for the following joint replacement procedures:
Campbell Clinic is one of the first facilities to offer outpatient total joint replacement in the U.S., allowing us to help our patients improve their quality of life more efficiently and with a cost-effective method. We do all of this while keeping service at the fore-front of our mind.
