Glendale Adventist Medical Center offers multiple total joint replacement surgery for patients who require replacement of both knee and/or hip joints. The advantages of this option are many, including:
- Patient prepares for and recovers from only one surgery, instead of two. This includes the advantage of undergoing anesthesia and rehabilitation only one time. The overall complication rate in this situation is typically lower than that of separate surgeries.
- Shorter hospital stay than if replacements are performed separately. Having two joints replaced at the same time usually adds only about two days to the overall hospital stay.
- Lower total cost than if performed separately.
