does surgery hurt?

Not during surgery: Local or general anesthesia makes surgery painless. Once anesthesia wears off you will have pain that your surgeon will control with anti-pain medications and anti-inflammatories. Talk this over with your Surgeon.

It depends: Pain is a difficult thing to predict. The most important question is what kind of orthodontic surgery you are asking about. There are many different kinds, ranging from very comfortable to requiring anesthesia. Secondly, patients have a wide range of pain tolerance. What one person considers very painful is only mildly irritating to another.
