Advancements in orthopedic knee surgeries may qualify you for outpatient surgery.
Current research suggests that outpatient knee replacement -- for the properly selected and prepared patient -- is as safe as inpatient surgery. For these select patients, there is no evidence of an overall statistical increase in risks.6
Outpatient knee replacement can take place at a hospital or an ambulatory surgery center. An ambulatory surgery center, like West El Paso Surgery Center on Redd Road, is a health care facility specifically designed for outpatient surgeries.
