Outpatient surgery in children with straightforward surgical problems has proved to be safe and cost effective. We have analyzed our experience in 138 consecutive "short-stay" surgical patients in terms of (1) cost effectiveness, (2) surgical procedure, and (3) complications. Selection of a patient for outpatient surgery requires a thorough preoperative evaluation as well as close cooperation between surgeon, anesthesiologist, and operating room staff.
