Perhaps your family physician has referred you to a surgeon or suggested that you have surgery. Maybe a friend had the same condition you do and had to have surgery, so you are afraid you will too. Don’t assume you need surgery, you may be able to return to good health without an invasive procedure.

There are situations where surgery is nearly impossible to avoid.
your appendix is inflamed and about to rupture, surgery is the only treatment. The same is true for badly broken bones and medical emergencies.
