Day Surgery

Day surgery offers patients the convenience of modern medical care. Over the years, advances in techniques and technology have simplified many surgical procedures, allowing them to be performed on an outpatient basis. With less invasive approaches - such as endoscopy, microsurgery techniques and laser technology, the recovery period from surgery has been dramatically reduced. Laser technology, with its pinpoint accuracy, considerably reduces recovery time for procedures that once required overnight stays. MORE INFORMATION>>
