At Orthopedic Specialists & Sports Medicine, we are committed to providing you with the highest level of care in a comfortable, professional atmosphere as well as at a more affordable price. That’s why we offer hip, knee, and shoulder replacements at our state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center, Northpointe Surgical Suites, on an outpatient basis, which typically costs 40% less than inpatient surgery.*
Allowing our specialty-trained doctors to give you the individualized, world-class care you deserve, Northpointe Surgical Suites’ facility has advanced technology and treatment protocols to ensure a rapid recovery. They have been awarded The Joint Commission’s Advanced Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Certification, and it is only the second ambulatory surgery center in Ohio to receive this distinguished certification.
Performed by our expertly trained orthopedic surgeons at a surgical center, our outpatient total joint replacement procedures provide the following benefits:
- Lower cost due to no overnight stay
- Quicker recovery time
- Reduced risk of infection**
- The ability to leave the day of your procedure and immediately start recovering from the comfort of your own home
We also offer outpatient total joint replacement surgery for those patients with Medicare at Mount Carmel New Albany, which is in the 99th percentile for patient satisfaction and recognized as a High Performing Hospital for hip and knee replacements.
