Outpatient knee replacement surgery is a total knee replacement procedure that will allow a patient to return home immediately following the surgery. Traditional open knee surgery will require an overnight stay. However, not everyone will qualify for same-day knee surgery. Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Scott Russinoff in Westchester County specializes in this type of outpatient procedure that focuses on minimally invasive techniques that allow a patient to rest and recover in the comfort of their own home.
The hip is a ball and socket joint that the body relies on for many sedentary and weight-bearing activities.
For complex fracture surgery and total joint replacements, open incisions are required. However, arthroscopy gives surgeons the ability to return the hip to function, using minimally invasive techniques. Removal of articular cartilage defects and bone spurs, and repair of the labrum can be performed using specialized equipment, cameras, and small incisions. However, with fractures and degenerative changes, hip surgery may require more aggressive care, which can include the possibility of a total hip replacement.
Arthroscopy has revolutionized the ability to return the knee to function, although open incisions are required for complex fracture surgery and total joint replacements. The reconstruction of articular cartilage and meniscus cartilage defects and the reconstruction of ligaments are performed with small incisions and the use of specialized equipment, such as a small camera called an arthroscope. These techniques provide better access and visualization allowing the surgeon to repair an injury, returning the knee to as close to normal function as possible.
An orthopedic surgeon specializes in the treatment of conditions of the musculoskeletal system. This specialist will use a combination of nonsurgical and surgical solutions to treat tumors, certain infections, musculoskeletal trauma, spinal disorders, degenerative disease, and sports injuries. An orthopedic doctor may perform surgery on areas of the body such as the elbows, shoulders, knees, hips, ankles, feet, hands, and spine.
Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Scott Russinoff believes that the best approach to treating sports injuries and orthopedic injuries begins with the most conservative solution. When a patient’s range of motion, strength, and pain is not improved, surgery may be advised.
What People Are Saying
Dr. Russinoff is the absolute best. I was terrified of knee replacement, but the surgery went great. The nurses at the hospital were amazing. Access PT were the best. PT at the center was hard the first two weeks, but I made it through. Dr. Russinoff and his staff made such a scary surgery (for me) so much easier. I am really doing good. Thanks to all.

Dr. Russinoff is a kind, caring individual. He operated on me twice, and will again when I have my two knees replaced. I recommend him to all my friends. Caremount is extremely lucky to have him on staff.
I find my experience with Dr. Russinoff, very pleasing . He’s helpful, and he doesn’t ignore any of my questions. He explains what’s going to happen to me in great detail, and I have no qualms about being with him. Thank you.
