Benefits of Total Knee Replacement at an ASC

There are many reasons why people of different ages need a total knee replacement (TKR): arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and posttraumatic injuries, to name a few. For the right candidate, CONA now offers TKR at an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) — a facility where patients receive outpatient surgical procedures and are then discharged within 24 hours.

Benefits of Total Knee Replacement at an ASC

  • Surgical care is administered in a highly specialized and controlled environment;
  • Patient satisfaction is increased by a closer relationship with a single nurse;
  • Patients receive consistent information about the procedure;
  • There are more family involvement and clearer instructions for managing postoperative pain and care;
  • Since the patient has more individual control over his or her postoperative recovery, satisfaction has been shown to increase.

According to a study cited on the website by Richard A. Berger, MD, there are other benefits of outpatient joint replacement: decreased hospital stays, fewer complications, and improved outcomes. Also in follow-ups of the patients monitored in the study, there were low rates of readmission.

While not everyone is a candidate for this type of outpatient knee surgery, CONA can evaluate your condition to determine the best surgical procedure for you. Call 864.582.6396 for a consultation.

I am happy with this practice all my questions are answered within 24 hours. Dr. Hoenig is great, his bedside manner is wonderful, he is very thorough, and makes personal calls after surgery to check on patients. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!

This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.

These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
