    Dr. Daniel Chan is a board certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon who specializes hip and knee replacement as well as complex fracture reconstruction. He utilizes the muscle-sparing and minimally-invasive direct anterior approach for hip replacement along with computer navigation and he also utilizes robot-assisted knee replacement to optimize patient outcomes.

He has also developed a reputation for being able to handle the most complex fracture / trauma and revision joint replacement cases, regularly receiving referrals from surrounding hospitals and surgeons.

Outpatient Joint Replacement

Dr. Chan is one of the leaders in South Florida in outpatient hip and knee replacement performed in an ambulatory surgical center. He was the first in Broward County to perform a direct anterior approach hip replacement in an ASC and remains the highest volume ASC hip and knee replacement surgeon in Broward or Dade County. Patients are up and walking within an hour of surgery and can be discharged home within two hours of surgery. Dr. Chan has been recognized by Becker’s ASC Review as one of “10 ASC Total Joint Surgeons to Know” and his outpatient joint replacement program at Cypress Creek Outpatient Surgical Center is only one of six centers nationwide where other surgeons can bring their teams to learn about same-day hip and knee replacement to bring to their facilities.

Patients can also prepare by practicing specific exercises for which they will receive instruction to facilitate a quicker recovery.

  • Procedure

    For appropriate patients, surgery will occur at our outpatient surgical center and can expect to stay several hours before going home. For more complex procedures, patients will be admitted the day of surgery to the hospital and may stay several days depending on the complexity of the procedure and patient condition. Dr. Chan has a team of medical doctors and advanced practice practitioners that will care for patients while in the hospital.

  • Post Operative Care

    Post-operative physical therapy is essential to achieve a good outcome and is usually done at an outpatient facility close to home. For patients that are homebound or with more complex procedures, home care occasionally is utilized. Dr. Chan and his team are always available via phone, e-mail, or via the electronic patient portal to answer any questions that arise during the post-operative period.

  • Follow-Up Care

    Patients are usually seen two-weeks after surgery in the office to ensure appropriate healing of the surgical incision and again at six weeks with new x-rays to ensure appropriate implant positioning and alignment as well as to check that patients are progressing appropriate with rehab. Additional follow-up may be necessary at several months after surgery depending on the complexity of the procedure. Dr. Chan and his team remain available for questions at any point after surgery, even if years later.
