5 Advantages of Same-Day Surgery
Lately, men and women are being equally interested in improving their appearance or fixing any physical issue through surgery.
Many people think that this kind of procedures might take a long time, whether we talk about surgery or the healing process and that is why they have many doubts and can’t decide if they should go through with it. Sound familiar?
Well, the amazing news about this is that there are many procedures, including surgery, which can be done in about an hour and a half and return home in just a couple of hours after.
Today, we will explain 5 advantages of Same-Day surgery, that way you can know why is it becoming a huge trend nowadays.
1. Minimally Invasive Procedures:
Outpatient surgeries are minimally invasive, this means that the procedure is performed through little incisions, instead of a large opening. Which permits a faster recovery and with significantly less pain.
On a minimally invasive surgery, the surgeon will open several tiny incisions on the skin, with separations that will help an endoscope (a thin and small tube with a camera at the end) enter the incisions and allow the surgeon to perform surgery through them instead of doing a large opening.
As minimally invasive surgeries are becoming popular, technology advantages have given us the chance to perform more surgeries done through this method, including plastic surgery, orthopedic surgery, and general surgery.
2. No need of overnight stay:
As these surgeries are minimally invasive, the openings will be closed and sutured before you can leave the clinic, with these being really small incisions, you will most likely be able to perform all your daily activities as soon as you walk out of the clinic.
However, if you decide to undergo orthopedic surgery, it might not allow you to walk or move as easily as any other procedure that fast. In those type of cases, we will advise you to spend the night at our hotel and bring someone close to you so they can help you in case you need anything.
Other than that, you will be pretty much good to go!
