119. Thank you! Yes, outpatient

His doctor uses the anterior method, where he goes in from the front, rather than the back. That way, he's not cutting through so much muscle. So, the surgery can be outpatient and the recovery time is minimized.

He had the first hip done that way 4 years ago. Walked out of the surgery center on crutches, experienced little pain and didn't need PT or rehab. We're hoping for the same result this time.
