Ambulatory Pediatric Surgery

Andrew B Nordin et al. Semin Pediatr Surg. .

Abstract

Ambulatory pediatric surgery has become increasingly common in recent years, with greater numbers of procedures being performed on an outpatient basis. This practice has clear benefits for hospitals and healthcare providers, but patients and families also often prefer outpatient surgery for a variety of reasons. However, maximizing the potential opportunities requires critical attention to patient and procedure selection, as well as anesthetic choice. A subset of outpatient procedures can be performed as single visit procedures, further simplifying the process for families and providers.
