Surgery dangers

August 29, 2008 at 1:34 pm

My son Nate is in need of foot and ankle surgery and already both his Orthopedic Doctors have consulted with his Neurologist about not putting him under general anesthesia. They both agree that it is too risky to even try that.
They both say that the risk of relapse is very high.
Nate’s Orthopedic Surgeon will be using nerve blocks and sedation, not general anesthesia.
It surprises me that ANY surgeon would say that surgery has nothing to do with relapse. That is very well known.
