Same-day orthopedic surgery

Exceptional outpatient surgical care for your orthopedic needs at TRIA

At our state-of-the-science Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC), you’ll find award-winning surgical care for common and complex orthopedic conditions. Our orthopedic surgeons perform a variety of procedures – including knee and hip arthroscopy, and shoulder repairs – that don’t require an overnight hospital stay. The Ambulatory Surgery Centers are a part of all TRIA orthopedic centers so you have coordinated care and resources available to you.

Ambulatory is used to describe outpatient surgery or same-day surgery. When you come in for an outpatient orthopedic procedure, it will likely be less invasive, so you can head home the same day.

Before you head home, you will recover at your own pace in a well-equipped surgical suite. We’ve designed it specifically to support your unique postsurgical needs, including comfortable lighting, communication, connectivity and real-time medical video capabilities.

Same-day surgery procedures we offer

Depending on your condition, we can provide same-day surgeries for a variety of orthopedic conditions – from your shoulders down to your feet. Common procedures include:

Knee surgery

Your knees work hard and when you have pain, you feel it in almost everything you do. Many knee issues can be treated with a same-day surgery. Our surgeons use an arthroscope, a small tube with a camera on the end, to treat infections and torn meniscus, as well as remove loose cartilage and bone fragments. This is a minimally invasive procedure done through small incisions, which cuts down your recovery time and gets you back to doing what you love.

If you need a total knee replacement we offer both traditional techniques and the latest technology like the robotic surgical assistant (ROSA®). The ROSA uses cameras and optical tracking to allow your surgeon to personalize your surgical plan. The robotic technology guides your surgeon by letting them know exactly how your knee is positioned, leading to increased precision and the most accurate placement of your implant.

Hip surgery

Hip issues can really get in the way of daily living, but we commonly correct and address hip issues at our Ambulatory Surgery Centers. Arthroscopic hip surgery is a procedure where we use an arthroscope to guide us as we remove or repair injured tissue around the hip. We might recommend hip arthroscopy for conditions like hip labral tears and other soft tissue injuries.

Foot and ankle surgery

We rarely give our feet and ankles a thought – until we are in pain. Whether it’s from an injury or just wear and tear, foot and ankle pain can affect everyday life. When that happens, we’re here to help. We use arthroscopic surgery to treat ligament, tendon, bone and joint conditions with procedures that don’t require a hospital stay. Our skilled surgeons will quickly get you on the path to recovery.

Shoulder surgery

Some days it feels like your shoulders carry the weight of the world. So, you need them to be in top working condition. When they aren’t, we can help you get back to better. Shoulder conditions such as rotator cuff tears and tendonitis can be treated in our Ambulatory Surgery Center. And that means you can start healing in the comfort of your own home.

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) develops and maintains nationally recognized standards that set the bar for ambulatory surgical care.
