Inpatient and Outpatient Gynecological Care
Outpatient surgery, also called ambulatory or same–day surgery, does not require an overnight stay in the hospital, meaning that you can go home the same day if your condition is stable. You will need someone to drive you home.
Outpatient surgery may be done in a hospital, health care provider’s office, surgical center, or clinic.
Inpatient surgery takes place in a hospital and requires an overnight stay.
