Many orthopaedic facilities, mainly those attached to large health care systems, lead patients to the misconception that every orthopaedic surgery must be performed in a hospital. In reality, there are many orthopaedic procedures that can be performed in an outpatient setting, much to the benefit of the patient. If you’ve been considering options for your othopaedic needs, keep reading to learn more about the benefits of outpatient services in a freestanding surgical center versus hospital-based procedures.
The Cedar Orthopaedic Surgery Specialty Clinic is a “one stop shop” for those needing orthopaedic services. Our practice can bring patients through the surgery and recovery process in its entirety, from evaluations and MRIs to surgery and physical therapy. The close relationship our facility has with Southern Utah Physical Therapy allows us to work hand in hand with their therapists, focusing directly on patient rehab.
Trends in health care are moving toward allowing orthopaedic patients to bypass the “sick environment” of hospital stays and move right into self- motivated “healthy mobility”. Our clinic is proud to be one of the pioneers of this movement. Through his 22 years of practice, Dr. Delcore has gained exceptional insight into what makes patients good candidates for procedures in his outpatient surgical center. Surgeries performed at Cedar Orthopaedic Surgery Center allow patients to recover in their own home, promoting self-reliance and activity. Patients who are confined to a hospital room, if they have unnecessary hospital stays, have less opportunity to live their normal lives and take quick steps toward rehabilitation than those who choose outpatient procedures.
One of the best advantages that outpatient procedures at a freestanding outpatient surgery center have is that they are a fraction of the cost of traditional hospital-based procedures. In fact, we provide truly transparent quotes that are all-inclusive (surgeon’s fee, facility fee, joint implants, anesthesia fee, and physical therapy fee for that date of service). Patients have the option of paying through their insurance carrier or using our cash-only option. Our patients never have to sacrifice quality for price; we are pleased to have a 99% patient satisfaction rate.
