Inpatient vs. outpatient surgery

Depending on your health, condition and the procedure you need, you may have:

  • Outpatient or day surgery – Visit the health care facility for surgery and go home the same day.
  • Inpatient surgery – Stay overnight after your surgery for more observation and care.

Minimally invasive surgery

Whenever possible, your care team uses minimally invasive techniques that reduce pain, scarring and recovery time. At ProHealth Care, your doctor may use:

  • Endoscopy – Places an endoscope (a thin tube with a light and tiny video camera on the end) through a natural body opening.
  • Interventional radiology – Uses imaging technology to guide a catheter (a thin, flexible tube) through your blood vessels to the area that needs care.
  • Laparoscopy – Uses very small incisions, a laparoscope (a long, slender tool with a tiny video camera), and other special tools to see inside your body and perform surgery.
  • Robotic-assisted surgery Uses very small incisions, a magnified 3D high-definition vision system, and extremely precise mechanical arms and tools operated by your surgeon.
