Modern Surgery is very safe.: Modern Surgery is very safe. Every breath and heart beat is carefully monitored. I is actually safer then sleeping alone at home. I is helpful to realize that if is much more dangerous to get in your car and go for a drive. You don't even think about that, and you probably do it every day. It is normal to have fear over something new, but you will almost certainly be fine.
