All arthroplasty (joint replacement) surgery is conducted using the local infiltration analgesia (LIA) technique to minimise post-operative pain. Furthermore, arthroplasty patients are mobilised within 4 hours of surgery. The aim is to reduce post-operative complications by reaching a safe level of independent mobility quickly and discharging the patient to the home environment early. A venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis protocol is used for all arthroplasty patients according to the guidelines of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. All post-operative arthroplasty patients are supplied with the surgeon’s mobile phone number to call with their concerns at any time.
