Fortius CEO Jim McAvoy commented: “The Fortius Surgical Centre represents a significant step in our strategic ambitions. The new centre, in the heart of Marylebone, is already enjoying widespread acclaim for quality of its facilities and finish. It will make a real difference to the patient experience, provide an excellent environment for staff to work in, and enhance our services for the future.”

Fortius Surgical offers day surgery to patients whenever possible, as it minimises the amount of time they need to spend in a medical environment and recovery is quicker, reducing the disruption to their daily life. 

Length of stay following surgery has been steadily reducing over the past decade and this has been accelerated with enhanced recovery programmes that encourage early mobilisation. This change in practice, combined with advances in both anaesthesia and surgical techniques have made an expanding number of procedures, and a wider range of patients, suitable for day surgery.

Fortius Surgical is located around the corner from our Marylebone clinic, at 20 Bentinck Street.
