Elective cataract surgery being performed in San Jose Municipal Hospital in Joinville, Santa Catarina

Santa Catarina has recorded since July last year, 11,996 cataract surgeries. The total amounts to 61% of the 19,462,000 elective procedures performed by the state task force started in 2011. The goal at the beginning of the program was 7200 operations. By the end of the year, the expectation is that the sum of the surgeries done to reach 22,600. The goal is to reduce waiting lists of SUS in the state.

The cases of eye cataracts are corrected on an outpatient basis and without any need for hospitalization. Already in hospitals, surgeries are also held in: otolaryngology (tonsils and adenoids), general surgery (gall bladder, hernia and varicose veins) and orthopedics (knee surgery, upper and lower limbs and removal of materials synthesis). In June this year the task force included the specialties of gynecology and urology, with 46 and 30 surgeries performed, respectively.

The signing of the Project Effort Elective Surgeries took place on July 25, 2011, in South Central, in Florianopolis, Santa Catarina during the IX Congress of Municipalities.

With the result obtained in Santa Catarina, the federal government allocated $ 18 million to implement the second phase of the project. This second phase, which begins in September, should be extended until July 2013, with the performance of more 19,800 surgeries.
