It may seem impossible to get a major surgical procedure on an outpatient basis. But in reality, more and more general surgical procedures are being performed without an inpatient stay. One of the many outpatient procedures that we can do is a hysterectomy.
Advances in medical technology over the last two decades have led us to a point where we can perform many surgeries through very small incisions. The incisions are just large enough to allow a tool to be inserted. That tool is then controlled by a surgeon using a camera to guide the tool.
Unless there are complications, most hysterectomies can be done in this way. There are a lot of benefits to going with an outpatient hysterectomy, including:
- Outpatient is much less expensive and is more likely to be covered by insurance without an issue.
- Because only small incisions are made, you’ll have a much faster recovery.
- Pain for these procedures is much less than with open surgery.
- You’ll be better able to keep up with your busy life.
Especially if you are a mother raising small children, you need to make sure you are back on your feet as quickly as possible. Contact us today to schedule your initial examination to determine if you are a good candidate for an outpatient hysterectomy.
