Outpatient Surgery Q & A

What is outpatient surgery?

“Outpatient” refers to a patient who receives medical care without admission to a hospital. In the case of outpatient surgery, your operation takes place in a surgical suite that may be attached to a hospital or exist as a standalone surgical center. You may also hear it referred to as ambulatory surgery or same-day surgery, which means you can go home the same day as your surgery.  

Which surgeries can be performed as outpatient procedures?

The list of potential outpatient surgeries and treatments performed by the highly skilled team at  Weight Loss Surgical Center is long and may include:

  • A complex wound or laceration repair
  • Surgical biopsies for cancer and other medical conditions
  • Gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy)
  • Skin cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Hernia repair
  • Tumor excision (removal)
  • Surgery (fundoplication) for reflux disease and/or hiatal hernia
  • Our team at  Surgical Clinic generally recommends outpatient surgery based on your overall health and the nature of the planned procedure, including whether the surgery can be performed with minimally invasive laparoscopy.
  • What are the benefits of outpatient surgery?
  • An outpatient surgical center can often offer quicker scheduling for your procedure than you may expect at a hospital. Faster scheduling can help ease the stress and reduce the pain you may experience while waiting for prolonged periods of time for inpatient surgery.
  • However, quick and affordable does not entail a reduction in quality. In fact, our expertly trained surgeons and staff’s primary goal is to ensure patients receive the same quality of care – if not better – in our outpatient facility as you would in a hospital. The equipment used in outpatient surgery centers is as advanced, sometimes more so, than what a hospital operating room offers.
  • Outpatient surgery is usually much more affordable than inpatient surgery due to the elimination of excessive hospital costs that most patients simply do not need. This ultimately reduces out-of-pocket expenses. People also tend to feel much more comfortable resting at home than in a hospital, which often leads to faster healing.
  • Gallbladder removal, hernia repair, and similar outpatient surgeries are performed laparoscopically. Minimally invasive surgical approaches often lead to expedited healing compared to traditional or “open” surgery, due to a reduction in risk for complications such as bleeding or infection.
  • Schedule a  Surgical  by phone today with our office to find out if you’re a good candidate for outpatient surgery.
