Doctors Thomas Joseph, David Weimer , and Joseph Stefko are just three of the orthopaedic surgeons at Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates. They are now performing same day total joint replacement surgery at The Orthopaedic Surgery Center in Boardman, Ohio. Many patients, as well as family members, have major concerns; such as length of hospital stay/recovery; level of pain; and overall costs when faced with a joint replacement surgery. By performing this surgery in an outpatient setting, patients are allowed to return home the same day and begin physical therapy shortly after the procedure, as well as diminish overall discomfort with pain management nerve blocks. This helps recovery time and a decrease in the overall cost of the procedure and after care management.
Talk to your orthopaedic surgeon to find out if you or a loved one may be a candidate for same day total joint replacement surgery.
