Pioneer in innovative and affordable healthcare solutions & the giant in private healthcare out of Colombo, Hemas Hospital Wattala has introduced a new dimension in surgery while offering a range of specially designed Day Surgical Packages to ensure convenience, better affordability & best patient experience for the masses. Day surgery is a relatively new concept to Sri Lanka and Hemas Hospital Wattala takes pride in being the first hospital out of Colombo to avail these new solutions to needy patients.
Outpatient surgery or day surgery is a convenient and affordable arrangement which Hemas Hospital Wattala encourages for surgical procedures for which days of hospitalization isn’t required. In other words, day surgery is easier on the pocket because patients will not be charged Admission Fees or Room Charges; only consultant fees and standard hospital charges for specific procedures and tests will be charged at the end of the stay.
The services under Day Surgery unit cover areas such as General, ENT, Urology, Orthopaedic ,Gynaecological & Obstetrics, GI(hernias, Appendicitis, hydrocele etc.),Vascular(varicose vain), Cosmetic Surgical procedures offering a wide spectrum of services to the end user.
Dr. Aruna Indaka Nandasena, enthusiastic & vibrant resident Genito Urinary Surgeon attached to Hemas Hospital Wattala states that day surgery covers a multitude of procedures under urology including cystoscopy, uretrescopy, renoscopy, laser Lithotripsy, hydroceletromy and bladder tumour resection.
Commenting on the benefits of day surgery, Dr. Aruna Nandasena said: “Patients often panic the moment we mention ‘surgery’ to them– mostly due to the common misconception that all surgeries, irrespective of scale, require days of hospitalization and staying away from work, family etc. On top of that, patients also fear getting thumping bills at the end of their hospital stay. We believe all those issues could be effectively tackled by opting for day surgery.
“The benefits of day surgeries are manifold; In relation to urology, most day surgeries are keyhole procedures that are typically painless, don’t require cut-opening or blood transfusions. Hemas Hospital Wattala has state-of-the-art equipment and advanced theatres to carry out these procedures and every patient will be availed the assistance of a Surgical Coordinator who is a doctor and will be at patients’ disposal twenty-four seven.”
The Surgical Coordinator will also provide services such as making appointments, liaising with nursing staff and doctors on behalf of the patient, handling records and following up with patients thereby making the entire experience a hassle-free one. Outside of Colombo, Hemas Hopital Wattala is the only facility which offers day surgery and the care of a highly skilled team of nurses along with consultancy of resident consultants.
The availability of resident consultants in all major specialties (General Surgery, Orthopaedics, Physician, Paediatrics, ENT, Urology, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Anaesthetists) with the most prominent panel of visiting consultants further ensures highest standard of patient care in terms of pre and post-surgery as well as during the procedures. This eliminates the need of staying for months in ‘waiting lists’ to undergo a simple surgery and once admitted to hospital waiting for days until the consultant is available. Hemas Hospital Wattala is dedicated to offering patients not merely optimum outcomes but also the comfort of a homely atmosphere.
The ease of affordable, fixed surgical packages covering both hospital and consultant fee help ensure a steady relationship with the patient and the institution. Thus the day surgery solution delivers simplicity as it’s governed by the set guidelines and protocols of the prestigious international hospital accreditation which is widely renowned as Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHSI).
