New Joint and Home the Next Day
It’s funny how quickly people take for granted amazing changes in our lives. Consider technology. You’ve probably been on an airplane and heard someone complaining about the wi-fi connection or speed.
Uh, you’re in a metal tube 30,000 feet in the sky. Your phone is accessing a satellite in nearby orbit, all so you can check your work email. It’s nothing short of mind boggling, but people are so accustomed to it they forget the wonder of it all.
Technology and surgical techniques in the orthopedic world have also come a long way, and joint replacement is evidence of that. Dr. Moore has moved the bar forward at Pinehurst Surgical by providing outpatient joint replacement.
Let’s get into this amazing option for joint replacement.
How is outpatient joint replacement a better option?
Outpatient joint replacement surgery is becoming the first choice for many qualified patients. Studies have shown outpatient surgery to have numerous benefits for patients when compared with traditional joint replacement. These include:
- Faster recovery
- Improved outcomes
- Decrease in infection rates
- Increased patient satisfaction scores
- Lower complication rates
Where are outpatient joint replacements performed?
Outpatient is a bit of a misnomer in that the patient isn’t returning home the same day of their surgery. Dr. Moore performs our outpatient joint replacements in The Surgery Center of Pinehurst, located across the street from our practice. It provides much easier access for both patients and families than the typical hospital center.
How is The Surgery Center of Pinehurst better than a hospital setting?
The outpatient joint replacement procedure is the same as in the hospital setting. The key difference is in the concierge experience at The Surgery Center of Pinehurst. Patients of Dr. Moore will stay one night at our outpatient surgical center. While there, two highly qualified and dedicated nurses (2:1 nursing ratio) will be by your side for any needs or concerns.
