The average hospital stay for a primary joint replacement procedure is typically 1 to 2 nights. For appropriately selected patients, our highly-skilled surgeons and anesthesiologists are able to perform joint replacement procedures on an out-patient basis. This means the procedure can be done in our state-of-the-art surgery center. Patients can go home the same day to recover with no overnight stay at a hospital or in-patient rehabilitation facility, but in the comfort of their own home.
Our surgeons perform out-patient joint replacement surgery at the University Center for Ambulatory Surgery, which is conveniently located on the third floor of our Somerset location. Procedures that can now be done on an out-patient basis include total hip replacement, total knee replacements, and partial knee replacement. All of these procedures are performed using the most minimally invasive techniques which decrease the risk of complications and allows for a quicker return to normal activities. Our expert team of anesthesiologists are trained in outpatient joint replacement, ensuring you return home pain-free following your procedure.
