When you qualify for outpatient joint replacement, you are put on the fast track to a quick, comfortable recovery. Our outpatient joint surgery option allows you to return to your home the same day of your surgery! Because Dr. Gibson specializes in minimally invasive joint surgery techniques for both hip and knee replacement, the supportive soft tissue around the joint remains intact and allows you to begin supporting yourself as soon as 6 to 8 hours later.
With outpatient services, you get all of the benefits of hospital support without having to leave home. Upon arrival home, a home nurse will perform an initial postoperative evaluation and customize your care routine. You will also be provided regular home appointments with a physical therapist, who will help you regain the joint strength and range of motion you need to resume your regular daily activity. Home physical therapy lasts for one to two weeks, and then you are free to see an outpatient physical therapist.
To find out if you are a candidate for outpatient joint replacement surgery, schedule a consultation today. Dr. Gibson will give you a personal evaluation and get you on the path to pain-free joints that much sooner!
