Texas Orthopedics' Dr. Tyler Goldberg: 4 key thoughts on outpatient hip surgery

Tyler Goldberg, MD, of Austin-based Texas Orthopedics, spoke with Spectrum News on outpatient hip surgery's benefits.

Here are four thoughts:

1. Prime candidates for these procedures include physiologically young patients.

2. Dr. Goldberg said candidates should not have a substantial number of medical comorbidities, such as diabetes.

3. He performed outpatient hip surgery recently on a female patient. Dr. Goldberg did not cut through the patient's muscle to install the new hip.

4. Outpatient hip surgery allows patients to get up faster without requiring narcotics.
