Dr. Timothy Henderson is at the forefront of this new technology which allows for same day Total Hip Replacement. He has designed a special table and instruments so that he can perform muscle sparing surgery. This causes less blood loss and pain for the patient, who can return home the same day and begin Physical Therapy the next day. Why go to a surgeon who performs Total Hip replacements the standard way, requiring patients to spend days in a hospital recovering, post operative treatment at inpatient rehab facilities, and take months to recover? Dr. Henderson will determine if you are a candidate for a same day Total Hip Replacement.
Before the Procedure
Gotham City Orthopedics will carefully consider if this procedure is best for you. Factors such as your age, health, previous complications, state of hip or knee joint, treatments already attempted and treatments already provided will all play a part in this determination.
If you are a good candidate for this procedure your total joint replacement surgeon may recommend you meet with your primary care physician, dentist, or other medical specialists to obtain clearance prior to undergoing surgery. The Gotham City staff and surgeons are here for you every step of the way.
Same Day Total Joint Replacement
Some of the components that make this procedure less invasive are the use of smaller incisions and the avoidance of certain muscles, separating them rather than cutting or disconnecting them from the joints. By doing so, recovery time is reduced significantly, with patients even able to stand by the day’s end in some cases. Prior to your surgery, your surgeon can help you understand the exact procedure, giving you peace of mind.
After surgery, you will be monitored for several hours before you are discharged. Your physician will ensure that you are recovering well and that everything went as planned. He will go over a detailed list of activities to avoid, along with general post-op guidelines to ensure swift and effective recovery. At any point during your recovery, the professionals at Gotham City are here for you. If any questions or concerns arise, you can call us day or night and we will help in any way we can.
The best part of the whole process is you can return home as soon as that very evening.
While recovering, you will likely undergo a regimen of Physical Therapy. This is a crucial step in your joint replacement process, as Physical Therapy allows you to regain your motor skills and return to your normal activities.
While you are comfortably recovering at home, the compassionate and caring staff at any of our five Gotham City Orthopedics locations is here for you at any time, day or night. Our priority is to assist you through this transitional period, and there is no question or concern too small for us.
