Ambulatory surgery has advantages for the patients and in the light of current health care policy is increasingly in demand. For "minor" surgery, a hospital stay is no longer necessary.
Both the surgical techniques and modern anaesthesia allow patients to be released to their home environment much earlier. Technically the day clinics are equipped just like the hospitals; all emergency facilities are available.
At the day clinic Unter den Eichen the patients are operated on a fixed date provided by the doctor concerned. Following surgery the patient will return home and must be looked after by a family member or friend.
