Orthopedic Surgery

Sometimes treating your back or joint pain may require surgery. Orthopedic surgery may be done as an inpatient or outpatient procedure. Certain surgeries are 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 spine surgery, and ankle, hip, knee or shoulder replacement, require hospitalization. Learn More
