No Increased Risk of Complications For Joint Replacement In Ambulatory Surgery Setting

EurekAlert!, an online, global news service operated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, just shared a fantastic article about the benefits of having your joint surgery in an ambulatory surgery setting. In the article they stated:

“The average length of stay in hospital was 8:09 hours for the ambulatory group, much shorter than 23:24 hours for the in-patient group. Overall, the rate of complications was low and there was no meaningful difference between groups: 3.9% for the in-patient group and 2.4% for the ambulatory group. There was also no significant difference between groups for readmission rates.”
