Office Based Surgery

What is office based surgery? 
Many surgical procedures once performed solely in a hospital or outpatient surgery center can now be performed int he physician's office using local anesthesia. Office based surgery is often more comfortable and convenient for the patient. Office based surgery, if appropriate, can be much more cost effective than surgery in an operating room.  

Some of the procedures that can be performed in the office include: 
percutaneous Dupuytren's release (needle aponeurotomy),
DeQuervain's tendonitis surgery.
