Same-day hip replacements get patients back on their feet

200253045-001-56a6d9d33df78cf772908cd0Debbie Spina is a supervisor for the radiology department at the Hospital for Joint Diseases at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City. But when CBS News met her this spring, she was a patient who was about to undergo same-day hip replacement surgery.

The 61-year-old had been having hip pain for the past two years because of arthritis. She had heard a lot of positive feedback from people who had undergonehip replacement surgery at her hospital. A big attraction for her was the possibility of going home right after the surgery.

“The option to go home the same day and have that family around me was something that I wanted to do,” said Spina.

She believed she would be able to recuperate more comfortably at home and get back on her feet faster.
