No overnight hospital stay is required so the patient returns home the same day. New medical technology, pharmaceuticals and advances in surgical recovery techniques have increased the number and types of surgeries that no longer require an overnight stay in a hospital. Patients return home quickly and safely, minimizing family and work disruption.
