Traditional surgeries require hospital stay for a few days after the surgery. This can cause mental and financial discomfort to patients. Often, this is done to ensure that the external surgical wounds heal, or to keep the patient under ‘observation’.
Daycare Surgery, in contrast, uses modern surgical techniques to ensure that the patient heals faster and can be discharged in 24 hours of admission.
In Daycare Surgery, trained daycare laparoscopic surgeons at Gateway Clinics perform surgery using hi-tech, precision equipment designed to minimize pain and accelerate healing, and advance anaesthesia techniques. Laparoscopic methods involve video-assisted surgery through a very small cut (often as small as 5mm to 10 mm) in the body. These techniques cause minimal secondary damage to the body tissues & thus result in faster healing. Special anesthetic techniques are used to minimize pain during and after the procedure. Patients are able to return back to their normal activities much earlier than traditional surgery.
Absolutely. A daycare procedure is performed only after thorough planning and evaluation of the patient by a qualified, daycare-trained doctor and wherever required by Cardiologist, Pulmonologist etc. The patient’s condition is evaluated and monitored after the surgery by the doctor and trained staff, and a discharge is done only if the doctor certifies the patient as fit for discharge.
