A relatively new trend in our surgical care is the provision of overnight stay in a non-hospital setting with supervised nursing. This is available at the Classic Residences in Brighton. This is particularly suitable for patients who are not insured as the fees are very reasonable despite luxury holiday style accommodation.
The perceived advantages of the Melbourne Hernia Clinic at these Hospitals:
- The patient has a choice based on convenience and medical needs.
- The nursing and paramedical staff are fully aware of the techniques.
- Attention is focused specifically on hernia treatment.
It is not seen as just a small operation compared to major bowel surgery or cardiac bypass surgery. There is the personal care aspect. Each patient is contacted by the surgeon the following day to ensure that all is going smoothly.
