Surgeons are some of the most skillful, highest paid doctors in the industry. On AVERAGE, they make $186 an hour. Surgeons with specialties make even more money.
So you’d think they’d be happy to do just a few surgeries a day… do them to their absolute best ability… and then call it a good day.
But that’s not how it works.
Whether through greed or over-confidence, some surgeons are performing over a DOZEN difficult surgeries in ONE DAY.
Some even do more than one surgery… at the same time!
And YOU are the one who will pay the price—in more ways than one.
The UGLY truth about “assembly line” surgeries
I’ll start by saying this practice is approved by the American College of Surgeons.
That’s right; they’ve given their stamp of approval on overlapping surgeries.
And it’s exactly what it sounds like…
They say it’s OK for surgeons to leave in the MIDDLE OF A SURGERY and go work on another one!
Some studies say it can even be beneficial.
But a woman in New York thinks differently. She was the victim of this procedure.
On her doctor’s schedule, she was the sixth surgery in the middle of 14!
The result? She went in for a hip replacement and came out with a fractured femur.
So rather than being able to walk properly, she’s walking with a limp and a cane…SIX YEARS LATER!
She’s hardly the only one — which is terrifying to think about.
Give natural methods a try first
This is just another reason among many to consider that surgery should only EVER be used as a last resort.
Before you agree to go under the knife:
- Do your own research
- Get a second opinion
- Ask about other, natural options
- Bring up any concerns you have
- Ask about potential side effects
Remember, most mainstream doctors will give you the quickest way to resolve a problem — be it a “Band-Aid” drug or serious surgery — because they “don’t have time” unless you ask!
And there’s one more thing you have to consider…
Some surgeries just aren’t worth it.
Seniors are vastly more likely to experience side effects from a surgery. Side effects than can leave you saddled in a wheelchair… or unable to take care of yourself.
And the truth of the matter is, there are times the problem isn’t worth losing your independence.
So don’t just ask your surgeon what the side effects are and what the surgery will fix…
Let your surgeon know what YOUR GOALS are for your life!
To Your Health,
