How The SwiftPath Method is Changing Joint Replacement
Joint replacement patients need surgical options that reduce pain, reduce the need for narcotics and speed recovery more than ever. Even patients with severe debilitating arthritis are often afraid of joint replacement — and what they fear most is the pain of the surgery, complications due to using narcotics and being completely out of commission after surgery. The SwiftPath Method aims to resolve all these issues.
SwiftPath is a protocol-driven company that is constantly striving to discover advanced surgical techniques in joint replacement. Their goal is to collaborate with top surgeons in driving improvements for outpatient and enhanced recovery joint replacements. Over the past two years, the SwiftPath Program has been used in thousands of joint replacements performed across the country. The program is so effective, that many patients can be discharged directly to home with no use of rehabilitation centers, hotels, or other types of recovery settings.
Where traditional joint replacement methods relied on large incisions, heavy doses of pain medications and months of difficult postoperative therapy, new minimally-invasive techniques have advanced joint replacement surgery, now allowing people to get back to their active, healthy lifestyle faster with reduced postoperative pain and stiffness and no need for narcotics. With patient education and family involvement, The SwiftPath Method creates a working plan customized to each patient to cultivate success with outpatient knee replacement. Non-narcotic pain control, streamlined nursing and physical therapy, online home care monitoring and more help patients achieve rapid rehabilitation. These groundbreaking techniques, and much more, are what set The SwiftPath method apart.
