from Urology Times
About half of postoperative visits to emergency rooms following urologic surgery could be prevented, but simply improving patient education may not significantly reduce the number of these visits, researchers say. "What we may think is common sense would have prevented a lot of emergency department visits," Hari Sawkar, MD, chief urology resident at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, told Urology Times.
