HSS Florida provides residents of South Florida with the highest-quality outpatient surgery, performed by experts from the No. 1 US hospital for orthopedics. Outpatient surgery, also known as ambulatory surgery, is a "same-day" surgery that does not require an overnight hospital stay.

This means that the patient is not fully unconscious during surgery but, rather, receives pain blocks in the specific area of the surgery (such as in the knee). Typically, patients who receive regional anesthesia require less medication during surgery, experience fewer postsurgical effects, and have faster recovery times.
The orthopedic surgeons at HSS Florida play a big role in your treatment. Their specialties include joint replacement, sports injury repairs, hand surgery and surgery for complex fractures. They will listen to your goals and concerns and work with you to develop the best treatment plan possible.
