Outpatient Total Hip Replacement Surgery
at ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities
ORA Orthopedics is the premier provider of outpatient total hip replacement surgery in the Quad Cities. The fellowship-trained, board-certified physicians at our Total Joint Replacement Centers of Excellence leverage the latest advances in joint replacement to deliver optimal joint function and pain relief to our patients. If severe hip pain from an injury, condition, or degenerative disease such as osteoarthritis is impacting your quality of life, consult with a member of our team about your treatment options.
The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that facilitates a wide range of motion. When the cushioning cartilage that lines the “ball” of the hip (the femoral head) and the “socket” (the acetabulum) wears down, the surfaces of the joint can become damaged and trigger disruptive side effects including stiffness, crepitus, and extreme overall discomfort. Total hip replacement surgery aims to restore fluid movement in the joint by replacing damaged joint surfaces with prostheses, or implants, which mimic the natural anatomy of the hip joint.
Total hip replacement surgery has traditionally been an inpatient procedure. With the use of minimally invasive techniques, modern pain protocols, and rapid rehabilitation, our surgeons can perform total hip replacement as an outpatient procedure. Patients receive one-on-one individualized nursing care and physical therapy while undergoing outpatient total hip replacement at ORA’s Crow Valley Surgery Center. Immediately following surgery, you recover in a spacious, private room and order dinner from a local restaurant. Patients return home within the first 24 hours. This allows you to recover in the comfort of your own home, avoiding a lengthy hospital stay. Most patients return to normal activities quicker and with less pain than with traditional hip replacement surgery.
ORA Orthopedics is redefining the experience for patients who require total hip replacement surgery in the Quad Cities area. Contact us to schedule an appointment and learn if you are a candidate for outpatient total hip replacement surgery. Your ORA physician will carefully evaluate your condition, review your symptoms, and outline all possible treatment options to help you make an informed decision about your joint health.
