Is Outpatient Shoulder Replacement an Option for You?

December 30, 2020

Frequent, recurring shoulder pain can affect your daily life and keep you from even the simplest of everyday activities. Fortunately, there is relief in sight with new technologies, offering new options to patients. One such option now offered by our shoulder specialists includes an outpatient total shoulder replacement.

A total shoulder replacement is often required because of damage or deterioration. Some patients may now have the option to have a total shoulder replacement in our outpatient surgery center. Same-day outpatient surgery has many benefits and is an option you can discuss with your surgeon.

Proponents of outpatient joint replacement believe it can:

  • Improve patient satisfaction 
  • Decrease medical costs
