Outpatient Knee Replacement

Dr. Chaudhary uses state-of-the-art techniques for minimally-invasive joint replacement surgeries.

Outpatient Knee Replacement

Dr. Chaudhary and Beacon Orthopaedics are pleased to offer knee replacement surgery as an outpatient procedure.  For qualified patients, knee replacement surgery can now be performed in the Beacon Surgical center and patients can recover in the safety and privacy of their own home. 

Total knee replacement has traditionally been performed as an inpatient procedure which has involved a multiple night inpatient stay and a large full-service hospital.  In addition to increasing the cost and complexity of the experience, larger hospital environments have been proven to have higher rates of infection.  Thanks to recent surgical technical advances and advances in post-operative pain management, Dr. Chaudhary has been performing total knee replacement with a brief overnight stay at Beacon’s surgical center or as a same day discharge surgery for the last 5 years. 

Under Dr. Chaudhary’s leadership, Beacon was the first to perform outpatient knee replacement surgery in the area has the longest track record of any local institution.  In this time, Dr. Chaudhary has performed over 1000 outpatient procedures – more than any other practitioner in the Cincinnati area.  Results have been superior with hospital readmission rates and complication rates far below national benchmarks.  Dr. Chaudhary has  10 years of board-certified surgical experience, fellowship trained in hip and knee replacement, and has performed over 5000 knee replacements.  Most recent technical advancements have included the transition to a totally tourniquetless knee.  By not using a tourniquet for knee replacement, patient pain is greatly reduced and recovery is accelerated.  For those who qualify, outpatient knee replacement surgery has been proven at Beacon Orthopaedics to be safe, simple, and reliable.

Total Knee Replacement

A total knee replacement, also called a “total knee arthroplasty,” involves the removal of worn out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint and replacement with ceramic, plastic, or metal components. Dr. Chaudhary uses gender-specific knee components to ensure the best fit and most comfort.

The knee is made up of the femur (thigh bone), the tibia (shin bone), and patella (kneecap). The meniscus, the soft cartilage between the femur and tibia, serves as a cushion and helps absorb impact.

Arthritis (inflammation of the joints), injury, or other diseases of the knee can damage the meniscus, causing extreme pain and restricting function.

Surgery is typically recommended only after non-surgical treatment options have failed to relieve the symptoms.
