If I don't want anyone but my doctor doing my surgery but he needs help, should I insist on another md or a resident?

In brief: Talk with your doc
Most of the time the assistant is chosen by your doctor and you really do not need to worry about it.
Many surgeries are done without a second surgeon as really the cost is prohibitive and unnecessary.
