Spearheading a revolution in the health sector in Sri Lanka, Hemas Hospital Thalawathugoda has introduced a new, affordable day surgery service for a wide range of procedures. Day surgery is a relatively new concept to Sri Lanka and Hemas Hospital Thalawathugoda takes pride in being one of the first hospitals out of Colombo to avail these new solutions to patients with a backing of a fulltime panel of specialist doctors.
Outpatient or day surgery is a convenient arrangement which is typically easier on the pocket because patients are not required to pay room charges or anything in addition to consultant fees and standard hospital charges for procedures and tests at the end of the stay, which makes day surgeries affordable to many patients.
Day surgery option is recommended for procedures like herniotomy, hydrocelectomy, excision of lumps and abscess, ureteroscopy, renoscopy, laser lithotripsy, and bladder tumour resection etc including keyhole surgeries which do not require cut-opening or blood transfusions. Hemas Hospital Thalawathugoda has the latest state-of-the art equipment and expertise to ensure optimum clinical outcomes and faster recovery.
Commenting on the benefits of day surgery, Resident Consultant Surgeon attached to Hemas Hospital Thalawathugoda Dr. Indika Ramanayaka said: “There are many benefits of day surgery. Day surgery is affordable because prolonged hospital stay isn’t required as the hospital has a panel of in-house surgeons, available 24/7, which eliminates the need for staying in ‘waiting lists’.
“Once the patient decides to go for the surgery, everything thereafter – from making appointments to handling records and liaising with nursing staff and doctors – will be managed by a dedicated surgical coordinator making the hospital stay a convenient and pleasant experience.”
