Surgery can often be a definitive treatment
to solve a health issue, but sometimes the operation can lead to a brand new problem,
like an infection. A recent study explored rates of infection after surgery in the US.
I’m Shelby Cullinan for the dailyRx New Network. This study focused on ambulatory surgeries,
which are common procedures that don’t typically require hospitalization overnight. The researchers
found that while overall rates of post-operative infections were low, there was still a large
number of these infections in the US that needed to be addressed. Follow your doctor’s
directions after surgery. Visit dailyRx.com to keep up to date with all the latest health
