While it is encouraging to see press explaining the advances in modern knee and hip replacement procedures, says Elite Surgical Center, the advancements that it discusses, particularly the ability to perform same-day replacements, are actually more widespread.

Many knee replacements can be performed in one day at Elite Surgical Center.

While the outpatient nature of Elite Surgical Center means that no patients stays there for long, their staff strives to make every minute the patient spends there free of anxiety or insecurity.

According to an article published July 7 by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, some patients getting knee and hip replacements are able to leave the hospital the same day that they receive the procedure. While in the past, all total knee replacement procedures had to be done in a hospital where the patient would be monitored at least overnight, advancements have allowed patients to leave the hospital or even have the procedure performed in an outpatient facility or medical center. Elite Surgical Center is one of those medical centers, performing an array of outpatient surgical procedures including total knee replacement. According to the doctors at Elite Surgical Center, there are several additional advantages in electing surgery in an outpatient environment when having a total knee replacement:

  • Personal Care and Attention – Elite Surgical Center notes that one of the top priorities of their surgeons, nurses, and support staff is to ensure that patients are constantly comfortable, both physically and mentally. Patients should always feel safe and secure when electing a procedure, says Elite Surgical Center, but traditional hospitals can often feel cold, cavernous, and clinical. While the outpatient nature of Elite Surgical Center means that no patient stays for long, their staff strives to make every minute the patient spends there free of anxiety or insecurity.
  • Reduced Exposure to Other Variables – While, for many injuries and ailments, major hospitals have proved to be a modern day necessity, they are by no means perfect at making sure patients come out better than when they arrived, says Elite Surgical Center. Many patients are unlucky to leave a hospital with an infection that may have been caused by any number of intra-hospital variables including other patients, insufficient care when using medical tools, and improper treatment. With the individualized care and lighter patient load seen at outpatient facilities, notes Elite Surgical Center, surgeons can minimize mistakes by focusing all of their attention on a single patient.

Elite Surgical Center says that they continue to work every day to perfect the outpatient method of care for knee replacement patients and surgical patients of all types.
