How Same-Day Hip Replacements Work

Dr. Jonathan Vigdorchik answers common questions about same-day hip replacements, how they work, and they can help you get back on your feet quickly.

Question: What’s the process for a 1-day hip replacement?

Dr. Vigdorchik: We appropriately screen patients to make sure that they don’t have any medical problems. Then they’re selected for this program.

First they go to a joint replacement class and physical therapy before surgery so that we can ensure that they know how to walk and use crutches or a walker post-surgery.

Patients are also required see the anesthesiologist prior to surgery. When they come in on the day of surgery they have an operation that lasts about an hour to an hour and a half. Patients get set up with the physical therapist and they can walk after surgery. At the same time all other pain medications are ordered. We’ll make sure that they’re medically safe to be sent home. We send them home and do a follow-up phone call the next day as well as providing nurse visits and physical therapy visits at their house.

The surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that is done, in my practice, with computer or robotic assistance which minimizes trauma after surgery and increases the speed of recovery.

The patient is given a long-acting pain medication as well as a long acting injection that lasts for three days.

Q: What conditions does a 1-day hip replacement typically treat?

Dr. V: Anybody undergoing hip replacement who is healthy and motivated.

Q: How do I know whether or not I need a hip replacement and whether I should give you a call?

Dr. V: Anyone who has hip pain should come see me.

Q: What’s the difference between a 1-day hip replacement and other hip replacement procedures?

Dr. V: There is no difference in the procedure but there is difference in the speed and aggressiveness of the recovery period.

However, same-day hip replacements have to be the right motivated patient’s as well as the right surgeon to do their surgery swiftly with minimal tissue trauma.

Q: What are the benefits of a 1-day hip replacement?

Dr. V: You get to rest in your own bed, avoid the hospital which is full of sick people and bacteria, easy access to pain medication because they are on your nightstand, and everybody loves to be in their own home recovering.

Q: Who is a 1-day hip replacement right for?

Dr. V: Young, healthy, active patients who want a rapid recovery. No medical problems. Must complete our pre-qualification class.

Q: Who is NOT a candidate for a 1-day hip replacement?

Dr. V: People with sleep apnea or other medical problems that might need monitoring overnight.

Q: How long does the actual hip replacement surgery take (within the 1 day)?

Dr. V: About 1-1.5 hours.

Q: How long does it take to recover from a 1-day hip replacement procedure?

Dr. V: Two weeks on crutches, another few weeks with a cane, and by 4-6 weeks they’ll be doing great. It’s the best for the most motivated patients because they recover very quickly.

If you’re experiencing hip pain and you’re in the New York City area, make an appointment with Dr. Vigdorchik today.

  • My husband divorced me and went after his ex and left me heart broken for 2 years. I have been playing the lottery for some years before I got married and I have never won any big amount. I continued to play the lottery but I couldn't win more than $500 dollars until I was introduced to Dr Amber that is a strong Haiti spell caster. I had a chat with him via +18084815132 telling him what a mess my life has become. He encouraged and promised to get my man back for me and to help me win the lottery. There were specific instructions that was passed to me by him which I adhered to as he prepared the spell for me that brought back my husband within 36 hours and he gave me some sure numbers to play the lottery game. I used the numbers to play the lottery and I was declared the winner of Ten Million Dollars and all this happened within a week after I knew Dr Amber. It doesn't matter what you are going through in life Dr Amber is here to help. You can visit his website: amberlottotemple.com or E-mail: { amberlottotemple@yahoo.com }.

  • I never use to believe in spell casting until i met Lord Zuma a powerful spell caster who helped me to be a happy person again. i reside in USA. After 4 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids. I felt like my life was about to end and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a Great spell caster called Lord Zuma which i met online on one faithful day when I was browsing through the internet, i came across a lot of testimonies about this particular Great spell caster how he has helped so many people. he has helped people to bring back their Ex lover, some testified that he restores womb, cure cancer and other sickness, and so on. I also came across a testimony, it was about a woman called Sandra, she testified about how his spell made her to be pregnant after so many years of bareness and at the end of her testimony she dropped Lord Zuma's email address. After reading all these, i decided to give it a try and i contacted him and explained my problem to him and he assured me that in less than 48 hours, my husband will call me and beg for forgiveness but i thought it will not work. When he had finished casting the spell, the next day my husband called me and he was begging for forgiveness just as Lord Zuma said. This is not brain washing and after the spell has been cast, i realized that my husband love me like never before and the spell caster opened him up to know how much i love him and how much love we need to share. We are even happier now than before. Lord Zuma is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and a genuine spell caster to solve all your problems contact Lord Zuma now on spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or just visit https://spiritualherbal.blogspot.com and see so many he has helped that are testifying about his good work. He will help you solve all your problems. Once again thank you Lord Zuma for your good deeds. His whatsapp number +1 506 800 1647

  • I am so happy and filled with JOY. I am Gordon Rees by name and I work as a taxi driver. I love playing lottery but I have not won any huge sum except for a few Pounds. I decided to search online for help on how I can win very big because I have been playing lottery for the past 10 years. Then, I saw a post about Dr Amber who specializes in lottery spells. I contacted him and he told me everything about how to get the spell done for me and I agreed. He prepared a lottery spell for me and within 3 days, he gave me the numbers to play the lottery of which I did and after 2 days, I was told that I have won the sum of 1 million Pounds on the lottery game I played. I was surprised about it and I had to make sure I verified everything before believing that I was the winner of 1 million Pounds and ever since then, my life has changed and I am so happy living my dream life. If you need help to win your lottery game, WhatsApp Dr Amber on: +1 (406) 646-2222 or email: amberlottotemple@yahoo.com
