Presidio Outpatient Total Joint Program
The surgical population for joint replacements is getting younger. Patients are interested in getting home as soon as possible, and returning to as high an activity level as possible.
One of the biggest postoperative challenges for patients undergoing total knee or hip replacements is pain. Historically, pain has kept patients in the hospital on an average of two to three days. Pain limits patients ability to participate in physical therapy, and has led to longer hospital stays.
