Understanding Surgical Procedures

Millions of Americans have surgery each year. Most operations are not needed immediately and you have time to ask your surgeon questions about the operation, why you need it, and when and where it should be performed. We have listed a number of links where you can learn about surgical procedures and what questions to ask your surgeon.

Your surgeon knows you and your family best. Nothing takes the place of talking directly with your doctor about your health and questions that you have. The information provided here is not medical care or treatment and is not specific to your situation. You need to contact your own surgeon for your specific medical care.

YourSurgery.Com® provides easy to understand information for common and specific surgical procedures.

The American College of Surgeons series of public information brochures on specific clinical procedures is now online.
