Trumbull, Conn., December 12, 2016 (Globe Newswire) — Surgeons at The Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center (OSM) have begun offering outpatient total hip, knee and shoulder procedures at The Surgery Center of Fairfield County in Trumbull.
“We were extremely impressed with how efficiently everything was handled and how friendly yet professional all the staff members were, from reception to surgeon” said Mr. James Sorensen of Easton, one of the first to receive outpatient total hip replacement surgery. “Thank you so much for such outstanding care.”
The benefits of this surgery to outpatients, meaning those who don’t have to remain in the hospital post-surgery, are multifaceted. These benefits include comfort and convenience, lower exposure time to hospital-borne infections, a lower cost relative to a hospital stay and the ability to recover in the comfort of one’s own home. Because of advances in implant technology, pain management techniques and the expertise of the surgeons, recovery times are expedited, and hip and knee patients are able to walk short distances before leaving the surgery center.
Dr. Peter Boone, who performs more than 200 joint replacements annually and performed Mr. Sorensen’s hip replacement commented, “For joint replacement patients that are healthy, motivated and have a strong home support system, we believe that recovering in one’s own home is a better experience that encourages mobility early on in the recovery process. Our patients are extremely pleased with their experience at the Surgery Center. We have physicians, nurses and surgical technicians that strive hard every day to make sure they have the best possible outcomes.”
