What is day care surgery?
Day care surgery is not a new concept. It has been practiced for quite some time in developed countries like the U.S. In fact it’s become increasingly popular all over the world for many reasons. First, thanks to advances in technology, doctors can now perform minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedures. Secondly, the newer drugs used for anesthesia allow patients to recover consciousness very quickly, so that they can go home soon after the surgery is over. And lastly, since modern painkillers are more powerful, patients experience much less pain after the operation and they can successfully relieve the pain themselves by taking these medications at home.
Day care surgery is now a global trend, and over 70 per cent of elective surgeries in the USA are now done this way. Also studies worldwide have shown that day care surgery delivers the same high quality care as that given to hospital patients. In fact, research has shown that day care surgery centers are actually safer than hospitals. Day care surgery is economical as well. On an average, research conducted in the USA has shown that procedures at day care surgery centers cost 50 per cent less than those at hospitals.
