The Advantage of an Ambulatory Surgery Center Versus The Hospital
Out of all the positive feedback we receive from patients regarding their experience at 77 Plastic Surgery, patients often express great satisfaction with their experience at Hayes Valley Surgery Center. Patients love the fact that they can have their cosmetic surgery right in our facility.
In addition, an ambulatory surgery center can have significant advantages for patients compared to the hospital:
Lower Infection Rates
A recent study showed that patients in the hospital have a 1 in 25 chance of developing an infection from the hospital. That is a very high rate. In our facility, the risk of infection is 10 times lower.
Higher Levels of Privacy
Your privacy is more secure in our facility than it would be in any hospital. This is true not only because we pride ourselves in maintaining patient confidentiality, but because there are fewer people in the surgery center who could potentially leak your privacy.
A More Cohesive Surgical Team
Every surgery requires a team, and the more often the surgical team works together, the better, safer, and more successful your surgery is going to be. At our facility, we usually have the same surgical team for every procedure. At other facilities, the surgical team usually varies on a daily basis, depending on what other surgeries are going on at the same time and the availability of staff.
The costs at our ambulatory surgery center are generally lower than those at the hospital because we have lower rates of overhead. This can translate into savings for our patients.
High Degree of Safety
At Hayes Valley Surgery Center, we have all of the necessary emergency training, equipment, medications, and protocols in place to deal with any unforeseen situations. This is verified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) which performs yearly on-site facility certification inspections.
