No one wants to hear the news that they need surgery. For many people, the idea of “going under the knife” evokes fear and anxiety. Even if you know that having a procedure done will help improve your health and quality of life—or even save your life—the thought of surgery can make you feel anxious and out of control.
That’s why understanding what’s involved with surgery and your hospital’s surgical services is so important. It can really ease your mind, knowing what to expect and knowing you have a qualified and extremely skilled staff working hard to protect your health and well-being before, during, and after surgery.
