Orthopedic Surgery

 Sometimes treating your joint pain may require surgery to alleviate pain and fix the damaged joint. Orthopedic surgery may be done as an inpatient or outpatient procedure. Certain surgeries are deemed outpatient procedures and will have you home the same day. These include knee, shoulder and hip arthroscopy and surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome, among others. More complex orthopedic surgeries, such as ankle, hip, knee or shoulder replacement, require hospitalization to manage your pain, care for wounds and help you become mobile on our own.
