Safety is everyone's responsibility. Your participation is the best way to ensure your own safety. When your doctor says you need surgery, you will want to find out as much as possible about it.
Before your surgery, make sure that you and the health care professionals treating you all agree and are clear on exactly what will be done.
Doing surgery at the wrong site (for example, operating on the left knee instead of the right) is rare. But even once is too often. The good news is that wrong-site surgery is 100 percent preventable. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons urges its members to sign their initials directly on the site to be operated on before the surgery.
