Dr. Van Flandern provides progressive outpatient hip and knee replacement techniques at the boutique North Atlantic Surgical Suites ( NASS ). The advanced techniques provided allow patients to return home the same day. Anesthesia is most often spinal and recovery very rapid. General anesthesia is used in some circumstances.
After the anterior hip, hip, knee or partial knee replacement – patients recover under the guidance of the NASS team and then return home. Physical therapy is provided at the center and then at home the next day. Patients progress at home and revisit the usual hip or knee schedule.
NASS allows patients to return directly home instead of having to remain in the hospital waiting for services and discharge. Recovery is in the comfort of your own home.
