Medical procedures

In Austrian hospitals, 4 524 477 medical procedures were performed during inpatient stays in 2019, about 28% of them were surgical interventions. Most of these 1 282 050 surgeries concerned the musculoskeletal system (24%; 305 625 cases) as well as obstetric interventions or interventions on the urogenital tract (258 712 surgical services). Around 22% of all surgeries were performed in a day-care setting, which is almost 13 percentage points more than in 2009. Overall, the number of day-clinic (mostly minimally invasive) surgeries has increased by two and a half times in the last ten years. Of these, eye and orbital surgical interventions accounted for almost half (47%) of the procedures carried out during day-care in 2019 (representing 77% of all eye and orbital surgeries); cataract surgery accounted for four-fifths of these services. Other minimally invasive procedures frequently performed during day-care stays were on the urogenital tract and musculoskeletal system (42 899 and 39 741 cases, respectively), each accounting for about one seventh of all surgery performed in a day-care setting.
