With all surgery there are risks. Those risks are related to the procedure, the anesthesia and the patient. You will have a consultation with our registered nurse to discuss what those effects might be and how to minimize any risks. Most side effects happen during surgery or within 2 hours of surgery while you are still at the Center and we can monitor you. The risks of dying with surgery are very rare. Our facility is an AAAHC-Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center and we have never had a fatality.
