OrthoArizona surgeon performs outpatient anterior hip replacements

Written by Eric Oliver | August 22, 2019 | Print  |

Michael Wilmink, MD, of OrthoArizona is performing outpatient anterior hip replacements so patients can go home sooner.

The Phoenix-based surgery center discharges patients three to four hours after their procedure. Using this approach, patients can begin walking the same day, with the assistance of a walker, and can start their rehabilitation soon after.

OrthoArizona-affiliated surgeons brought the procedure to Phoenix in 2007. As the procedure grew and evolved, they knew it would be a great fit for the surgery center setting to save patients money.
