In brief: Complications

The worst complication is a leak which occurs 3% of the time nationwide (but about .
5% of the time if you go a very experienced surgeon). Bleeding, infection, bowel obstruction, anesthesia complications are others, and these typically occur at 1% or less of the time. It is a safe operation, but go to someone that has done thousands of them. For example, my group has done over 5000.
