A day surgery patient is someone who comes for a procedure and is released home during a single day.

We perform surgery as a day case if

  • the patient is fit
  • conditions allow after-care at home
  • and the operation is otherwise suitable for day surgery
  • you have someone to pick you up from the hospital and also a responsible companion for the evening and night following the surgery.

You will be released home when

  • your vital functions are stable
  • you have been out of bed and perhaps eaten and had something to drink.
  • the wounds do not bleed profusly and your pain is under control.

We give guidelines for home treatment before the release. A follow-up visit is also scheduled if necessary.

Both adults and children can be treated as day surgery patients.

Good planning and co-operation between patient and staff are prerequisite for successful day surgery.
