Why stay in the hospital when you can now recover from surgery in the comfort of your own home?
For knees, hips and shoulders, A.V.A.T.A.R® works to return people to life’s fun and challenges sooner.
Even today, more than 75% of people nationally spend 1 to 3 days confined to a hospital bed after total joint surgery. That is all changing, and outpatient same-day surgery is the future.
Modern advances in anesthesia, pain management and surgical techniques make this a safe and satisfying option for a majority of patients who undergo knee, hip and shoulder replacement. Dr. Parsons and Dr. King lead New England in same-day surgery joint replacement, having performed over 3 thousand cases in the past 8 years.
Though some people require hospital admission, over 80% of our patients are able to go home within hours of surgery. They recover with an intensive, personalized, coordinated rehabilitation program in the safety and comfort of their own home.
Advantages of outpatient surgery
- IMPROVED REST AND COMFORT AFTER SURGERY
- REDUCED COST TO THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM AND PATIENT
- REDUCED CHANCE OF HOSPITAL ACQUIRED INFECTIONS
- INCREASED PATIENT SATISFACTION
