No surgery is routine if it’s happening to you.
When you first find out you need surgery, it’s natural to feel a bit anxious. But, the more you know, the more relaxed you’ll feel about what’s in store. Keep in mind that Swedish does more than 32,000 surgical procedures a year, so while it’s not an everyday occurrence for you, it most assuredly is for your surgeon, nurses, and the other members of your care team.
