Perioperative Services provide surgeries for inpatients and outpatients (day surgery). The department includes the surgical unit, the recovery room, medical device reprocessing (MDR) and endoscopic services.
Day surgeries are diagnostic procedures that do not require hospitalization. You arrive at the hospital in the morning, have the surgery and leave the hospital later in the same day. Therefore, you spend less time away from work or home and you can recover in the comfort of your own home.
For an inpatient surgery, you arrive at the hospital the morning of your surgery and are then hospitalized during the stabilization or recovery period.
