An ever-increasing number of surgical procedures are now being performed in ambulatory settings. Hospital beds are at a premium and resources are becoming scarcer. This atlas guides readers through all the practicalities: it looks at the potential of short-stay surgery, how to set it up and how it may be relevant to all surgical specialities. Specialists well known in their sphere discuss and illustrate operations that can be performed without a stay in hospital. The topics covered will become more and more relevant as time goes by, and those who read this book will be able to stay well ahead of the game. It is designed to help surgeons plan for the future and discover the vast potential for this form of surgery.
