In everything we do at OrthoColorado Hospital, our patients’ health is our top priority. That’s also the foundation for our same day total joint replacement program.
While every patient is different, all same day total joint surgery journeys start at the same place: a conversation with your surgeon. Together, using the key principles of our shared decision making care model, you and your surgeon will determine if a same day surgery is a good fit. If you are in good overall health and have a support system at home, a same day procedure could be right for you.
Your care team will ensure you understand each part of the journey ahead and feel comfortable with your decisions every step of the way.
It’s part of the perks of choosing a specialized, close-knit hospital like OrthoColorado. Everyone on your care team communicates closely and is involved from the moment you enter the hospital until you’re ready to go home.
With your surgeon’s approval, you’ll return home 2-4 hours after your procedure. Combined with the many benefits of rest and recovery at home, our specialized care protocol will ensure a successful journey back to health. And with no overnight hospital stay, you’ll be on the road to recovery quicker-and back to doing the things you love.
