News just in from our client, Raleigh Orthopaedic Surgery Center: Outpatient Surgery Center FAQs [5 important answers to questions asked by patients]

As a patient, you may be confused as to where and how to seek medical advice, or where to perform a surgical procedure, should you need it. We know about your concerns because we have been asked many questions about these problems – and many of these questions are centered around outpatient surgery centers.

The number of surgical procedures capable of being safely performed in an ambulatory setting increases yearly, as they benefit the patient financially, medically and in terms of the recovery time.
