Is Surgery Safe?
Naturally, one of the most significant concerns, both from a patient and their families alike, is the safety of any surgical procedure.
First and foremost, surgery has become ever safer over the past several decades. Surgery is not the same as it was for our parents a generation or two ago. Today, surgery has never been safer and once complex procedures are now considered routine.
Secondly, employing a surgeon that is very experienced in the procedure you are going to undergo may reduce the risk of complications, both during and after surgery. Further, the facility you choose can also go a long way in the safety of your procedure. A highly trained staff should attend to your needs and the facility should be recognized for its quality of care and cleanliness.
Not even the simplest surgical procedure is perfectly safe; however it is also important to note that a surgeon will not perform a procedure if a patient’s surgical risk is greater than the benefit that the procedure provides.
