Our Total Joint Arthroplasty Services

What are the Benefits of Ambulatory Surgery Centers(ACS)?

Our ASCs were designed to be the most advanced health care facilities for your orthopedic needs. The significant advantage of receiving treatment at our ASC is it offers years of experience in outpatient arthroplasty. Our staff have specialized knowledge and training in outpatient TJA.

The surgical procedures performed at ASCs don’t require hospital admission and as such can be a cost-effective option for many patients who require orthopedic surgery and treatment.

ASCs ensure patients receive private treatment in a stress-free space as compared to a busy hospital environment.

ASCs are subjected to stringent inspections to ensure that these centers are fully compliant with healthcare standards both at the state and national levels. Our centers have been certified as centers of excellence for joint arthroplasty.

What should you Expect From Your Surgery?

At Summit Orthopedic Specialists we are 100% committed to delivering personalized and positive patient experiences when you come in for your Sacramento Outpatient Joint Surgery.

Here’s a general outline of what you can expect:

Before Your Surgery at Summit Orthopedic Specialists

A preoperative interview will be conducted to review your health and medical history. Based on your health condition, you may be required to undergo health tests or asked to provide medical clearance from your primary physician for the surgery.

You will be told what to expect and if you have questions – you can ask them at any point during the process. Information about your surgical procedure, steps to take prior to your surgery, information about your care team, and the recovery process will also be provided.

Day of Your Surgery

On the day of the surgery, you will be admitted, and your vitals will be checked to ensure you are ready for your surgery. Your surgeon will review your surgical plan with you once again and answer any questions you might have – your consent form will also be reviewed to confirm your go-ahead for the procedure. Once this is done, you will be taken to the operating room for your surgery.


After your surgery is over, you will be shifted to a post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) and carefully monitored while you recover from the anesthetic and to oversee any side effects. Any pain, discomfort, or side effects will be addressed by your doctor, nurse, and anesthesiologist.

When you feel well enough and are ready to get discharged, you will be provided with post-surgery care instructions on precautions, medications, and diet. The following day, you will be contacted by a member of the surgical team to find out how you’re doing.
