The Outpatient Joint Replacement Experience

Advanced Center for Joint Surgery 

The Advanced Center for Joint Surgery in Cumming is the region's first freestanding ambulatory surgery center (ASC) focused exclusively on outpatient hip and knee replacement surgery.

As a general rule, the term “inpatient” refers to procedures that are done in a traditional hospital setting that require admission to the hospital for a period of time after surgery. “Outpatient” typically refers to procedures that allow a patient to return home the same day. Although outpatient procedures can be done in the hospital setting, most outpatient procedures are done in ambulatory surgery centers. The inpatient setting in the hospital is best for those with complex medical problems that require the support of a complex system with different specialists and procedures that are needed when a patient is ill. The vast majority of patients that need hip and knee replacement do not need such support and will have a more personalized, valuable, efficient, and focused experience in an ambulatory surgery center.

Since its opening in 2018, over 8,000 hip and knee replacement surgeries have been performed at Advanced Center for Joint Surgery in Cumming. The exclusive focus on hip and knee replacement surgery has allowed the surgeons, nurses, and physical therapists at Advanced Center for Joint Surgery to “reinvent the wheel” and create care protocols designed specifically for these surgeries. Designed around patient safety, team consistency, and value-based care, these protocols result in an unsurpassed level of quality for those undergoing hip and knee replacement surgery. Because of its exclusive commitment, the surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and physical therapists can all specialize in one thing: hip and knee replacement surgery. There is a reason leading surgeons and institutions from around the world come to visit Advanced Center for Joint Surgery to learn about our secrets. 

Our results speak for themselves: 

  • Among the lowest infection rates in the industry 
  • The ideal anesthesia protocols resulting in industry-leading time to gait training and mobilization after surgery 
  • Unsurpassed safety 
  • The lowest rate of post-surgery urinary retention in the industry 
  • Better patient-reported outcomes at 12 weeks, 6 months, and 1 year than competitors across the nation 
  • Industry-leading patient satisfaction
