Same-day Joint Replacement Option Offers Flexibility

At Brigham and Women's, we understand you may want to get home, on the road to recovery and back to your life as soon as possible. Thats why we offer same-day (outpatient) joint replacement surgery for patients who meet certain criteria.

If you qualify for same-day surgery, you will have the option to stay in the hospital overnight or go home the same day the surgery takes place, offering you the flexibility to recover in the way that is most convenient to you. Patients who choose to have same-day surgery will also be monitored via regular check-in's with the surgical team, nurses and PAs to answer questions and ensure a smooth and seamless recovery.
