Replacing Exterior Door from Garage

Currently we have an outswing exterior door from our patio that enters into the side of the garage. We are looking to replace this entire door and door jam with a pre-hung steel door. Can we purchase and install a pre-hung exterior steel door that swings inward instead of outward? Thank you for your help

I don't know why you couldn't... As long as the overhead garage door track isn't in the way of it opening inward... and there aren't any steps...

Welcome to the forums Sarah!

Another thing to consider is if there is a short foundation wall that juts out into the garage. That could prevent the door from opening much past 90 degrees.
pics of both the inside and outside might garner more advice -
