Outpatient Surgery at Florida Orthopaedic Institute

The leading provider of outpatient total joint replacements

Until recently, joint replacement surgery has been an inpatient procedure carried out in the hospital needing a three- or four-night hospital stay. For select patients, Florida Orthopaedic Institute surgeons perform these procedures on an outpatient basis thanks to improvements in surgical techniques, as well as anesthesia, pain management, and joint replacement implant technology.

Our surgery centers at Telecom and Citrus Park offer same-day outpatient surgery with the latest in cutting-edge medical equipment and surgical devices to allow our physicians to perform the most effective techniques for each case.

Our fellowship trained and board-certified physicians are nationally-recognized experts and have done more outpatient hip and knee replacements than any other facility in the Tampa Bay area. With outpatient surgery, recovery is done at home which makes it faster, safer and generally less expensive meaning you can get back to your life sooner.

Most commonly used to replace arthritic or worn-out joints, it’s estimated that more than 500,000 knee, 250,000 hip, and 53,000 shoulder replacements are performed in the U.S. each year on an outpatient basis.

Some common outpatient surgery procedures offered at Florida Orthopaedic Institute:

  • ACL reconstruction.
  • Carpal tunnel release.
  • Hip and knee replacement.
  • Rotator cuff repair.
  • Spine surgery.
  • Trigger finger release.
  • And more.

Outpatient joint replacement certainly offers several distinct advantages over the inpatient setting, however not all patients will qualify for the procedure, commonly due to factors such as overall health, age, weight and insurance.

Surgery Outpatient Surgery

Surgery centers offer patients the convenience of having surgeries and procedures safely performed outside of a hospital setting. They improve both quality and customer service while reducing costs at a time when most health care costs are increasing.

Besides eliminating costs of overnight hospital stays, outpatient procedures lower costs through:

  • Faster acting and more effective anesthetics
  • Less invasive techniques, such as arthroscopy
  • Minimally invasive procedures, for the spine as an example

Research on same-day total joint replacement patients conducted by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons examined patients who either underwent inpatient or outpatient total knee or hip replacement surgery. The researchers found that outcomes were comparable between the two groups.


  1. Convenience. Recovering in your home is easier than an in-hospital stay.
  2. Lower Cost. There are no hospital room charges or related hospital charges, so costs are much lower for outpatient surgeries.
  3. Availability. Some insurance companies cover certain surgical procedures only on an outpatient basis.
  4. Reduced Stress. Most outpatient surgery is less stressful than inpatient surgery.
  5. More Predictable Scheduling. Since procedures are less complex and more routine, outpatient surgery centers are better able to stay within a set schedule.
  6. Shorter Wait Time. Typically there is very little wait time to get your procedure scheduled.
  7. Targeted Service. The surgeons, nurses and facility specialize in your outpatient procedure.
  8. More Privacy. Unlike a hospital, you don’t have to share your room, your nurse and your operating room.
  9. Advanced. Equipped with the newest high-tech medical equipment, your surgeon can treat you using the most advanced surgical tools available.
