'You need surgery' may be the scariest thing we tell patients
Fear and anxiety are widely regarded as major impediments to patients scheduling surgery. They lead to delays that, in many cases, can exacerbate patients' problems and negatively impact their quality of life. As surgeons, we can offer our skills and training to help our patients realize life-changing outcomes; but despite all our efforts to make our patients comfortable with surgery, fear and anxiety often dominate our patients' decisions and prevent them from proceeding with surgery.
