Question: What should I ask the orthopedic surgeon about my surgery?
Answer: You should feel comfortable about any surgical procedure before being treated for your condition. Most concerns can be addressed by learning more about a particular procedure from your surgeon.

It is important to have a candid discussion with your physician prior to any operation so you are familiar with any risks and benefits of a procedure. This is not a discussion that can be substituted by researching information on the Internet; you must meet with your surgeon to address these concerns. For ideas on questions you can ask your doctor before surgery, look through the following information:
