How long will your stay in a hospital be following joint replacement?

Historically, doctors perform joint replacement surgery at a hospital. Then, the patient would remain in the hospital 3-5 days for recovery. However, recent advances in pain management and blood loss management have paved the way for outpatient replacement surgeries in the correctly selected patient. This means that you could go home after having a hip or knee replacement the same day. Then, you can recover in the comfort of your own home. Not all patients will qualify for outpatient joint replacement thus you should meet with your orthopedic surgeon to discuss the best option for you.
