During the total of 2 702 221 inpatient stays in 2018, 4 705 095 medical services were provided (which are mandatory to be reported). Of these, just under three quarters (3 426 015) were non-operative treatments and a good quarter (1 279 080) surgical interventions – this corresponds to an increase of 1.0% compared to the previous year. 303 027 surgeries were on the musculoskeletal system (23.7% of all surgeries), 261 084 were obstetric and urogenital surgeries (20.4%), and 171 377 surgeries were on eyes and orbita (13.4%). More than three quarters of these eye surgeries were performed in a day clinic setting; they also accounted for almost half of all day clinic surgeries (47.7%). Overall, the number of surgical procedures performed during a day stay (without overnight stay in hospital) has almost tripled in the last ten years (from 102 623 in 2008 to 275 139 in 2018).
