Almost every American will have surgery at least once during his or her lifetime. How can a patient ensure the best possible outcome when facing a surgical procedure? This program provides reassuring guidance and personal strategies that individuals should take into account before undergoing an operation. Helpful case studies feature a former secret service agent who intensely questioned his surgeon about his impending heart surgery, and a 19-year-old with cerebral palsy whose parents and doctor communicated extensively prior to his stomach operation. Experts include Dr. Douglas Boyd of the Cleveland Clinic Florida and Dr. Thomas Russell, executive director of the American College of Surgeons.
