Preventing unnecessary surgery

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:18am

Unfortunately, an apple a day will not keep the surgeon away. The best way of avoiding unnecessary elective surgery is to let the doctor know you do not have the funds to pay for it. You will be surprised how often the surgery is then no longer indicated ! This is why patients in public hospitals often end up getting better care ( translate this to mean less unnecessary surgery) than patients in private hospitals.
