In Tues night (operated on Wed) - out Sat morning. All part of the 'out of town' service provided by Dr. Blackley's team here in NZ. By leaving hospital in the weekend, transport logistics - flying home, pick up etc was more convenient for us.

In Monday night surgery Tuesday morning. Left Hospital Saturday morning. Physio said there was no reason I could not leave Thursday, but nurse said they don't like to let you go unless the wound is dry. Mine was still weeping a bit. it still was a little on saturday to be honest.

Surgery Thursday morning, left Wednesday afternoon. From what I understand that's longer than most patients get, though I felt I was still struggling with certain aspects. Particularly the stairs as I needed more help when I got home.

Was scheduled to stay one day but ended up with an extra day because my bladder didn't wake up from the anesthesia and might have exploded without a catheter. Not fun but I survived.

I am thinking another category to select from could be included here. "Less than a day" perhaps. My operation was done in the morning, and I left the hospital around 6:00 pm the same day. No overnight. I was more than happy to not spend the night in the hospital, and I think my insurance company loved it as well.

I had hip resurfacing with Dr Gross as an outpatient.  Personally, in my situation, if I had it to do over again - I'd op for a hospital stay.  I was in way too much pain and we ended up having to stay at the hotel longer anyway.

I went in at 9 am and left at 3pm. I had a rt hip resurfacing 8 days ago with Dr. Pritchett in Seattle. I had the spinal block and mild sedation option, so my recovery was quick and pretty easy. We stayed close by in a hotel that night, and left for home the day after - 3 hour drive.

Isn't it amazing how far this procedure and the surgical efficiency has come since this poll was started in 2012- 8 years ago?  Out patient surgery is becoming the norm with many of the top doctors.  Hospitals are potentially a dangerous place t o hang around- infection and bureaucracy is a bad admixture.  The doctors know now to get it done and get them out- saves costs and risks and they have honed the skills to make that happen.  Bilateral- 1st OR 10 AM discharge 6 PM, 2nd OR 7AM discharge 4 PM.  The OR prep nurses getting me ready sort of focused for a moment and said "Oh yes, he's very efficient".  Dr. Pritchett, 7/16 & 9/18 2018.  Of course it's a team effort and it's one hell of a team.

Bilateral patients who had two procedures in the same week may skew the polling numbers. My stay was 5 days. Had surgeries on Monday and Wednesday, and was released late afternoon on Friday. If I had only one bad hip, I think I would have gone with the outpatient surgery by Dr. Gross. It sounds like this is becoming rather popular.
