Outpatient Anaesthesia

The German Society for Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine (DGAI) has issued a guideline for anaesthesia in outpatient surgery.

Our hospital meets the premises and staff requirements of this guideline and ensures that they are fully implemented.

After an operation, adults are cared for either in the recovery room or on the general ward, while children remain with their parents on the general ward until the afternoon.
Before you are discharged you will be examined by the surgeon and anaesthetist and your post-discharge care will be explained.

A list of the most important points of this guideline can be found in the following overview:

Prerequisites for Performing Surgery on an Outpatient Basis

  • A suitable operation with a low risk of bleeding
