Day in the Life: Denise's Outpatient Knee Replacement

Follow Denise through a day in her life as she has outpatient knee replacement surgery at the NorthShore Orthopaedic & Spine Institute.

In this story, you will see how the team at the Orthopaedic & Spine Institute continues to work toward providing patients with minimally invasive treatment options, that allows them to return to their lives in a shorter amount of time. With this procedure, patients return home just hours after their surgery, as opposed to spending 2-3 days recovering in the hospital.
