Perth Day Surgery Centre (PDSC) opened in March 2006 and is housed within PIVET Medical Centre. It is licenced by the Health Department of WA as a Private Day Hospital Facility and is accredited by the Australian Council of Health Care Standards (ACHS). This ensures that PDSC meets the highest level of quality management standards now being developed around Australia.
By being structured independently, the new facility creates complete privacy and confidentiality for its clientele. It also enables PIVET to fully integrate the various clinical, laboratory, counselling, procedural and ancillary activities including genetic counselling, nutritional and naturopathic services and pharmaceutical delivery under one roof.
A wide range of infertility-related procedures can now be undertaken in an advanced operating theatre setting. This includes procedures requiring various levels of anaesthesia from IV sedation through to deep general anaesthesia.
Although the priority of PDSC is on fertility-related procedures, ancillary procedures are also able to be undertaken including urology, andrology, gynaecology and some general surgical procedures.
Given the rapidly rising need for fertility services around Australia, PDSC now enables PIVET to embrace this need comprehensively, more than doubling current capacity.
