Surgical procedures in our outpatient clinic

Operations here are ambulatory surgical procedures Even if general anesthesia is administered, the patient can go home on the same day. All patients are given the private telephone number of their attending surgeon so that they can contact him at any time of day should problems arise. Our patients are assured of complete care and support.
