Unlike earlier times where the hospital stay used to be for more than a week followed with a prolonged bed rest, patients can now return to the comfort of their homes within 12 hours of their surgery thanks to Fast-track procedures at Fortis Hospitals, Nagarbhavi.

The patients are not required to be admitted overnight and they are fit enough to return home within a day or less. Fast-track patients arrive early in the morning for their respective surgery appointments and if the postoperative observations are uneventful, they will be discharged within 12 hours of surgery. These surgeries have gained tremendous momentum in the last few decades. Fast track surgeries have been possible because of the advancement in medical sciences. It allows doctors to perform minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedures which enable faster recovery and patients experience lesser pain after the operation. The patient’s consciousness recovers faster with the help of new and modern anesthetics.

The fast track surgeries can be performed selective procedures in Digestive Care, Urology, ENT and Bone & Joint and Women care. With 24X7 in-house Anaesthetists available for post-operative care, Fortis hospital has a highly skilled team of full-time surgeons and doctors to perform these surgeries. Well trained staff, Intensivist and ICU backup adds to the facilities available at Fortis’ state-of-the-art operation theatres.

Studies worldwide have shown that Fast-track procedures deliver the same quality of care as to that provided by conventional surgical procedures and are also more economical as well. Fast-track surgeries are performed only after thorough planning and evaluation of the patient by a team of qualified experts including a Doctor, Anaesthetist and if required, a Physician. Prior to the surgery all the necessary investigations and Anaesthetist evaluation is done to ascertain the patients fitness to undergo the surgery. Condition of a patient is closely monitored after the surgery. Thorough information on the surgical procedure is explained to the patient by the Doctor in detail and after only if the Doctor certifies, the patient is allowed for discharge.

Patient returns to the normal routine swiftly and proper care is provided through a patient-focused pathway and risk of hospital acquired infections is minor.
