Outpatient Joint Replacement Surgery
Now available at the Bath Ambulatory Surgery Center and Akron General hospital.
Having hip or knee replacement surgery used to mean a several day hospital stay, potentially followed by admission to a rehab center. Today, for select patients, the surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure. This means you’ll have the surgery in the morning, physical therapy in the afternoon, and then go home later that same day to recover.
