A Total Joint Replacement as an Outpatient Procedure?

It’s possible! Since 2016, the surgeons with the Orthopedic Group at Springfield Clinic have been performing total joint replacements as an outpatient procedure. Patients can have surgery and leave the same day. Springfield Clinic was the first local health care organization to offer total knee and shoulder joint replacement as outpatient procedures.

A total joint replacement is a procedure where a surgeon replaces damaged parts of a joint with metal, plastic or ceramic devices. The devices, called prostheses, move like a normal, healthy joint. This type of surgery can be done on all joints: hip, knee, ankle, wrist, shoulder and elbow.
