The Operating Room of Hospital da Luz Clínica de Oeiras includes two rooms that are fully equipped to manage surgical procedures performed on an outpatient or one day surgery basis.
In particular, the Operating Room possesses minimally invasive surgery equipment (laparoscopic surgery). Minimally invasive surgery has significant benefits for patients, among which, the following are the most significant:
- Less postoperative pain
- Stronger immune response
- Faster overall recovery
- Quicker return to work
- Lower incidence of infections
- Lower incidence of incisional hernias
- Barely visible surgical scars
The rooms of the Operating Room of Hospital da Luz Clínica de Oeiras have an innovative lighting system, which substantially improves the visualization of the intervention field and eliminates the shadow effect. This important feature contributes to the optimal performance of the surgical team.
In addition, the Operating Block also has the most modern surgical instruments available for all surgical specialties that operate in the Clinic, along with the necessary facilities for washing, drying and sterilization of all materials and surgical equipment.
