Out Patient Surgery

What is outpatient surgery?

Outpatient surgery happens right at Coastal Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Center’s two state-of-the-art clinics. 

They’re fully equipped with modern technology, including digital X-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). They also use minimally invasive, tissue-sparing techniques, such as arthroscopy.

Why would I need outpatient surgery?

Surgery is never the first line of treatment at Coastal Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Center. Their expert orthopaedic surgeons always take a conservative approach to treatment. 

However, they may consider surgery if you suffer from pain and symptoms that continue to disrupt your daily life despite treatment with physical therapy, medications, and other non-surgical methods.

Conditions that may require outpatient surgery include sports injuries, arthritis, and herniated discs.

What are common outpatient surgery procedures?

The highly trained team at Coastal Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Center uses advanced outpatient surgical techniques to treat a wide range of injuries and conditions. Depending on your needs, they may perform one of the following procedures as an outpatient surgery:

  • Joint replacement, including the knee, hip, and shoulder
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction
  • Carpal tunnel release
  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Trigger finger release

They also perform a variety of spine surgeries, including artificial disc replacement, spinal fusion, and microdiscectomy. 

What are the benefits of outpatient surgery?

Outpatient surgery at Coastal Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Center is every bit as safe as surgery in the hospital, if not safer. 

According to a 2016 study in the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, people who got outpatient surgery had lower rates of complications, including pneumonia and urinary tract infections, than those who got surgery in a hospital. 

Every time you stay in a hospital, you risk getting a hospital-acquired infection (HAI). This can not only extend your hospital stay, but it inhibits your recovery. 

When you get outpatient surgery, you can recover in the comfort and safety of your home. In addition to facilitating an easier recovery, this eliminates the high cost of a hospital stay. Choosing outpatient orthopaedic surgery can potentially save you thousands of dollars.
