Joint replacement surgery is more accessible and patient-centered than ever before. While knee, hip, shoulder, and other joint replacement surgeries used to be performed only in hospitals, they are now available as outpatient procedures. Instead of spending days or weeks in the hospital, you can now go home the same day as your procedure.
What Can You Expect as a Patient at OSI?
Many new patients are understandably a bit apprehensive about getting joint replacement surgery. Oregon Surgical Institute is a facility designed by surgeons specifically to treat complex cases and procedures, including total joint replacement and spine disorders. Every element of the facility is built with patient comfort, care, and safety in mind.
Here are some of the features OSI offers:
Open, Accessible Design
Our facility features wider halls and larger operating room than standard surgery centers, plus a dedicated recovery area. This design creates an open, relaxed environment and makes it easy for you to move to through the phases of care as quickly and conveniently as possible.
Hospital-Grade Surgical Environment
OSI’s operating room is the exact same size as an OR in a hospital. Our OR and sterilization rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art, hospital-grade equipment selected by our expert surgical and anesthesia team. One of the factors that increases risk of infection in an OR environment is air movement: traditional swinging doors create an air vortex that stirs up bacteria every time the doors open and close. We designed our OR doors to slide back and forth to minimize this risk.
