I have to go in for brain surgery and i'm nervous. Is brain surgery safer now than it was from the past?

In brief: Yes

Being anxious before major surgery is quite common -- but you can talk with your neurosurgeon about any questions or concerns you have, please set aside the time to do this.
Before signing permission for the procedures, you should be given opportunity for such a discussion. Be well.
