Introduction: The concept of day care surgery is fast catching on, with more and more surgeons practicing day care surgery. Here I discuss the feasibility of practicing day care surgery in coloproctology. Materials and Methods: Nearly 1664 (16.49%) cases of anorectal diseases (of a total of 10,089 cases) were operated at a single center over a 10 years' period from July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2018. Results: Two patients (0.12%) had complications in the form of bleeding requiring readmission. Both were managed conservatively and discharged on the next day. Conclusions: Day care coloproctology surgeries can be practiced safely and successfully in a select group of patients with specific indications.
