|Why outpatient surgery?
Outpatient surgery is often more pleasant and convenient, less stressful, and even less costly than inpatient surgery. Some insurance companies will cover certain procedures only on an outpatient basis, and thus avoid related hospital inpatient charges.
Today, patients can take advantage of advances in technology, surgical techniques and pain-management, by safely electing to have less-invasive procedures performed outside of a hospital. Many types of procedures are appropriate for an outpatient setting, especially those that tend to require less complicated after-care, allowing patients to more comfortably recover at home.
