What Is An Outpatient Surgery?

Sometimes, surgery is necessary for diagnostic, cosmetic, or corrective reasons. These surgeries are elective and not an emergency, happening on the patient’s time. These procedures are called outpatient surgeries, meaning patients can leave the hospital on the same day. Traditional hospitals perform outpatient surgery, but these procedures are becoming more challenging to schedule. Patients can now have surgeries in a trusted location with an ambulatory surgical center.
