More and more patients are seeking to have their recovery from knee or hip replacement surgery at home. With modern surgical techniques, combined with the latest in pain management protocols, many patients are now able to go home the day of their surgery. In other words, a hospital stay is no longer considered a normal part of the post-operative treatment course.
This does, of course, require a coordinated plan to that your care at home is arranged ahead of time, with the support of family and often home health services.
This is now a regular part of the care that Dr. Kaper and his office arranges for patients.
