Pros, Adaptive criterion

Pros

Day surgery can be considered as a continuation of daily life.

We recommend day surgery to business persons and self-employed people on a hectic schedule, mothers of little children, and those who can’t leave home for too long or family of them.
As for day surgery requiring a patient to stay in the hospital from morning to early evening , the binding hour is greatly reduced.
It is also popular among elderly people who have difficulty adjusting themselves to hospital stays.

Day surgery removes the burden of hospitalization

There is no burden of asking someone else to look after your child or re-scheduling your house chores and work in day surgery. It also removes mental burden caused from worrying about these things.

It saves on costs.

It eliminates the hospitalization fee that takes up most of the medical treatment fees,
The medical treatment fee becomes about 20%-50% cheaper than before.(some treatment may not be covered by insurance)

It causes less burden on the body

Since Arthroscopic surgery, laser procedure and lumbar spinal anesthesia etc. have minimized the burden on the body, it shortens the period patients needs before they are able to return to daily life after surgery.
According to the condition, patients can return to daily life 2 days later.
