Outpatient Total Knee

Outpatient hip or knee replacement surgery is now being performed in select centers on select patients who are healthy enough to be candidates for this pathway. These surgeries can be done at an ambulatory surgery center or an inpatient hospital. Outpatient TJA should only be done on patients who are healthy enough to have surgery in such a setting and have the appropriate home setting/support to allow them to be discharged in this manner.
