Orthopedic Surgery Center Costs vs Hospital Costs

Outpatient Surgery at the Orthopaedic Surgery Center

Less Cost

Surgery costs at Northwest Orthopaedic's Surgery Center are 40%-60% lower than local hospitals

Currently, 90% of all knee surgeries performed by Northwest Orthopaedic surgeons are done in a hospital setting. However, the percentage of procedures performed outpatient at the ambulatory surgery center will likely increase because of the reduced cost of the procedure and shortened stay resulting in a financial incentive for patients.

Return Home Sooner

Additionally, patients are able to return home the same day as outpatient procedures. The outpatient joint replacements in the ambulatory surgery center reduce the risk of infections and allow patients to recover in their own homes.
