Many patients wish to go home directly after their joint replacement operation. Dr. Whitted currently performs total hip and knee replacements on an outpatient basis. This means if you are having a joint replacement surgery, you have the option of going home the next morning. A few patients will go home the same day after hip or knee replacement, after only a few hours in the recovery room.
Dr. Whitted can help you decide whether you are a candidate for outpatient total joint replacement.
