Same Day Knee Replacement
One of the latest techniques available at CHI Memorial is a same day knee replacement surgery that offers an outpatient surgical option for qualified candidates. Like other outpatient surgeries, same day knee replacements often mean fewer complications, lower rates of infection and increased patient satisfaction.
Key benefits of this outpatient procedure include decreased blood loss, no general anesthesia, more effective pain control, and a diminished risk of infections. In some cases, patients can shower the same day.
Ideal candidates for same day knee replacements are young, healthy, strong, motivated and have a solid support system at home to encourage and help them through recovery. Individuals with diabetes, heart disease or other serious health conditions are not appropriate for the same day procedure.
For more information about same day knee replacement, please call a CHI Memorial nurse navigator at (423) 495-7404.
