Patients receiving a total knee replacement at HSHS St. Mary's Hospital are now able to go home the same day of the surgery. Traditionally, a joint replacement requires one to three nights in the hospital, but now patients in overall good health and who have the right support system can recover in the comfort of their own homes. Our goal is to get you home for dinner and back to life faster.

This requires the work a full team the day of the surgery. Registration, anesthesia, surgery, the nursing units, rehabilitation and home care all work side by side to provide the most efficient, high quality care possible. Ask your physician if this is the right option for you. Schedule your same-day total knee replacement appointment today.
