Askins & Miller also specializes in Joint Replacement Surgery of the knee, hip, and shoulder. Although many of these surgeries are performed at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center and Doctors Hospital, some private insurance, workers' compensation, and cash patients who need knee or hip replacement in Sarasota, Bradenton, Arcadia, or Englewood may medically qualify for our outpatient facility at GulfCoast Surgery Center on our Sarasota campus, where patients are immediately transferred to HealthSouth in Sarasota for recovery and rehabilitation. Patients then have home health skilled nursing and physical therapy until they follow up with the orthopedic surgeon. Outpatient joint replacement surgery at GulfCoast Surgery Center is at least +40% less expensive than joint replacement surgery at a hospital.
Other orthopedic surgeons and facilities that perform "outpatient" knee and hip replacements cannot transfer implant patients to a rehabilitation facility. These patients are discharged home to care for themselves in the critical days immediately following surgery. Moreover, these patients are expected to manage their own pain, change their own dressings, and provide for themselves.
Patients throughout Sarasota, Bradenton, Arcadia, Venice, and Englewood have benifited from outpatient knee and hip replacement surgery with Askins & Miller and GulfCoast Surgery Center. Even international patients visit Askins & Miller to take advantage of cost savings and positive outcomes of knee or hip replacement surgery at GulfCoast Surgery Center in Sarasota.
