Joint Replacement FAQ

Q?

What types of joint replacement surgery do you perform?

A.

1) Total Knee Replacement

2) Partial Knee Replacement

3) Total Hip Replacement

4) Total Shoulder Replacement

Q?

Is it safe to have this surgery in an outpatient facility?

A.

YES, it is a safe. We use the same state of the art equipment and we have the same trained competent staff and anesthesia support that is used in other health care settings.

Q?

Can anyone have a joint replacement at your surgical center?

A.

No, we are careful with our patient selection. You must meet certain surgeon specific criteria and your insurance company must allow this as well. Several major insurance companies do allow these procedures including Anthem-BC/BS, Security Health Plan, WPS, WEA and United Health Care. Medicare and other government payers ONLY ALLOW partial knee replacements to be performed in the outpatient setting.

Q?

Will it cost me less to have it done in your facility?

A.

Yes, but we want you to determine this for yourself. Ask for an out of pocket quote to have it done at our facility and compare this to a quote from any other health care setting. We believe you will be pleasantly surprised.

Q?

Will I go home on the same day of my surgery?

A.

Some of our patients are ready to go home on the same day and some need to remain overnight. We do have accommodations if you need to remain overnight. We do what is best for YOU the patient.

Q?

What if I need to go to a rehabilitation facility after surgery?

A.

Your surgeon will be able to determine this prior to your surgery.  This allows the surgeons office and our center to collaborate together in coordinating a smooth transfer following your surgery.
