"It's been a natural progression over many years where we have seen a gradual reduction in the duration of hospital stay after joint replacement," says Robert Greenhow, MD, of Peak Orthopedics & Spine in Lone Tree, Colo. "This has been based on less invasive and improved surgical techniques, use of regional anesthesia and peri-articular injections, less tubes and drains and a reduction in the use of narcotics."
