Alabama practice to offer one-day hip replacement


Vestavia Hills, Ala.-based Swaid Clinic is now offering same-day hip replacements, according to an Oct. 25 report from WBRC6.

The Swaid Clinic opened in January, and same-day treatment outside a hospital is new to the area, Swaid Swaid, MD, told WBRC6. The center performs a variety of surgeries, and Dr. Swaid said he hopes all hip replacements can be performed there.

"In our environment, it's smaller and much more controlled, and I believe safer at this time because of the [COVID-19] crisis," Dr. Swaid said in the report.
