NEW YORK and JERSEY CITY, N.J., July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Same-day Total Hip Replacements are now being performed routinely by Gotham City Orthopedics' Total Joint Reconstruction Specialist, Dr. Timothy Henderson. These patients leave the hospital the SAME DAY—and begin outpatient Physical Therapy THE VERY NEXT DAY!
Currently, most total hip replacements are performed in a hospital. The patients stay about 3 or 4 days—sometimes much longer—and either then go to a subacute rehab facility, or go home. Most patients require several months of physical therapy before they can return to their regular lives.
Dr. Henderson is at the forefront of this innovative surgical technique. It is considerably less invasive than traditional total hip replacements, as it does not cut through any muscles. Patients are discharged the same day and they start outpatient physical therapy within 24 hours. His patients have returned to full duty work as early as 3 weeks after surgery.
Dr. Timothy Henderson has extensive training in this orthopedic subspecialty, with over 6 years of experience performing same-day Total Hip Replacement surgeries.
