At the Henry Ford Center for Joint Replacement we are constantly updating our protocols and procedures based on research and experience to benefit our patients’ experiences and outcomes. Our rapid recovery program allows our hip and knee replacement patients to recover more quickly with:
- Pre-surgical preparation through education, recovery planning, medical optimization, and weight management
- Surgical improvements including less invasive surgical techniques, shorter or less sedating anesthetics, no bladder catheters, multimodal pain management
- Same day discharge and physical therapy — by virtue of the above improvements, we can begin physical therapy faster, allowing our patients to avoid a hospital stay
- Flexible patient-centered rehab protocols that are designed to fit each individual patient's need; from a fully supervised recovery, hybrid or fully self-directed rehab plan.
