Same day Joint Replacement Surgery

Specialties Orthopaedic


Today is it common for most joint replacement surgery patients to go home the same day after surgery.  What have been your experiences with patients going home the same day vs staying overnight in the hospital?

Almost in total joints go home same day from our hospital.  Revisions may spend a night or two.  The ones that stay are either very frail, or severe pain issues (which is rare).
