We offer a full range of medical and surgical joint care, using minimally invasive techniques that can often reduce pain, shorten recovery time and leave minimal scarring.

Advancements in medical technology, surgical techniques and pain management have made it possible for some patients to have hip or knee replacement surgery on an outpatient basis. Same day joint replacement surgery, also known as outpatient joint replacement or ambulatory joint replacement, is an option at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital. Patients return home on the same day as the surgery, allowing them to recover in the comfort of their own homes.

Patients who are healthy and active with no major or ongoing medical problems are good candidates for outpatient surgery. Your orthopedic surgeon can help you decide if you could be a candidate for outpatient hip or knee replacement surgery.

Inpatient Surgery

HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital is home to all inpatient orthopedic care, such as total hip and knee replacement surgeries or spine surgeries, providing around-the-clock care for patients and their families. During the hospital stay, the patient may receive inpatient physical and occupational therapy services to help with the recovery process.

Outpatient Surgery

The HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital Sheboygan Surgery Center is an outpatient facility offering patients the opportunity to have select surgical procedures, which do not require an overnight stay, be performed outside the hospital setting.

After your hospital stay, you may be referred to Prevea Health’s outpatient physical or occupational therapy to assist you in restoring movement, relieving pain and/or regaining strength.
