What is outpatient total joint replacement?

Rapid-recovery total joint replacement is an outpatient surgical option that takes place in an ambulatory surgery or operatory center instead of a hospital.

How is it different?

Instead of your surgery being performed at a hospital, it’s performed in an ambulatory surgery or operatory center. These advanced medical facilities feature all the same equipment and technology as a hospital operating room, but they’re designed to get you in, out and back to your normal life faster—without requiring a hospital stay.

How common is it?

How common is it?

With the introduction of minimally invasive techniques, modern pain protocols, improved anesthetic techniques and rapid rehabilitation protocols, joint replacement surgeries are becoming increasingly popular on an outpatient basis. In fact, by 2030, an estimated 635,000 hip replacements and 1.28 million knee replacements will be performed as outpatient procedures.

How is it different from inpatient surgeries at a hospital?

Compared to hospital inpatient surgeries, outpatient surgery center procedures:

  • Cost less
  • Have lower infection rates
  • See lower 90-day readmission rates
  • Are less painful and don’t require as many narcotic pain medications
  • Result in early mobilization
  • See fewer complications
  • Have a quicker return to daily activities

Most importantly, outpatient procedures allow you to recover in the convenience and comfort of your own home. Which means you’ll heal from surgery in a familiar environment where you’re more likely to get a good night’s sleep.
