Why do we undergo surgeries or procedures?

So many people undergo surgery or procedure without asking questions.

Surgery is the use of instrument to create incisions so that injuries or disorders in

the body is treated.It is usually done under general anesthesia.

Some people ask questions before the procedure or surgery.

But some people don’t ask questions.They just trust their surgeons.

You should be aware of not only the Name of the Procedure or Surgery

but Why do you need it.

Ask questions and make sure that you are answered correctly.

Do not be shy or ashamed to ask for clarifications.

Your surgeon should  explain to you what he/she intend to do before you sign

the consent form.After the doctor and the Anesthesiologist talked to you then

you can sign the consent form.

The anesthesiologist is the doctor that will put you to sleep.

Don’t you think that you need to know?

The informed consent means that you got the information and that you totally agreed.
