Every year, doctors perform more and more procedures in an outpatient setting. As technology has improved, many procedures are being done faster and with fewer complications, so it makes sense to allow patients to go home sooner. Experts estimate that about 65 percent of all surgical procedures can be done same day and do not require a hospital stay.
AnMed Health is a partner in three outpatient surgery centers, where patients undergo same-day surgical procedures in a less institutional environment. Some of the procedures performed in our outpatient surgery centers include:
- Pain management procedures
- Eye surgeries
- Simple orthopaedic surgeries
