Surgeries at Hospital México

Why is it important to have surgery if required?

Having surgery before a disease worsens can be beneficial in several ways. First, surgery may be more effective in the early stages of a disease, since the affected tissue can still be repaired or removed. Otherwise, if the disease progresses and becomes severe, it may be more difficult to treat and it may take more time and effort to recover. Also, if the disease is not treated early, it can start to affect other organs or systems in the body, which can increase the risk of complications and affect quality of life. So having surgery before a disease gets worse can help prevent more serious problems and improve long-term health. It is important to keep in mind that each case is different and it is necessary to carefully evaluate the benefits and risks of any type of surgery with the treating physician. It is essential to follow the doctor's recommendations and have the necessary examinations and tests to determine if surgery is the most appropriate option in each case.
