One-day surgery (same day surgery) allows for the patient to spend post-surgery recovery at his/her home environment and with close ones, therefore speeding up overall recovery and the return to a normal life. Many diseases can be treated in this one-day manner (one-day care), therefore avoiding the need for extended hospitalization.
In the Czech Republic, the concept of one-day surgeries is relatively new. Its significant growth began with the increased use of minimally-invasive surgical methods such as laparoscopy (used for example to treat chronic inflammation of the appendix, hernia or the gall bladder) and arthroscopy or endoscopy. All of these surgical procedures which are radical in their nature, yet gentle in their effects. Following local or general anesthesia, the patient can leave the surgery almost immediately or after resting shortly to continue with follow-up treatment at home. Medical fields which make use of this method of surgery include general surgery, paediatric surgery, urology, gynaecology, orthopedics, plastic surgery, and many others.
The major benefit of one-day surgery is the fact that the patient does not undergo unnecessary pre-surgery stress or any infections which can be connected with extended stays in standard hospital environments. One-day surgery may not be suitable for every patient - its use is only possible with low or medium-risk patients.
