Today, even with total hip and knee replacement surgery, Precision Orthopaedic patients may begin walking at home within a day of the procedure. In the past, patients would have lain in a hospital bed up to three weeks. Recovery still takes time, but for the right candidates, the innovations in orthopaedic outpatient procedures mean much faster recovery of motion.
Outpatient surgeries can be completed at about a third of the cost of a traditional inpatient procedure, thanks to procedural and equipment developments. The cost savings is attractive to insurance companies, but also makes joint replacement affordable to those whose insurance would not cover it.
