Surgeons take the lead.
In a surgical office setting, surgeons take the lead in cultivating a safe and welcoming experience. Unlike in a hospital environment, where surgeons are just one part of the patient experience, in an office-based surgery center, the surgeons have more control over all the variables of how surgery is done. This includes everything from the sterile preparation of the surgical field to the patient's overall comfort level, which allows your surgeon to create a more controlled environment in the operating room, leading to better patient outcomes. For example, surgeons can take the time to ensure that the patient is adequately prepped and draped before surgery, which can help reduce the risk of infection and other complications. They can also control the temperature and lighting in the operating room to ensure maximal patient comfort during their vision enhancement procedure.
