Inexperienced surgeons botching bile duct surgeries. Laproscopic gall bladder surgery is one of the most performed surgeries in the U.S. At least 750,000 operations are conducted each year, quickly rising to popularity since it was introduced in 1989.
However, more surgeries means more surgeons are performing them, often leaving patients with an inexperienced surgeon doing this type of express, sometimes outpatient, surgery. One of the most common injuries suffered by patients is from these physicians, when they cut the common bile duct during the surgery. This injury is often very painful and life-long effects can set in soon after the surgery. These inexperienced surgeons are to blame. Please visit this site for more:

Sorry, but I was referring to the post that muckraker462 was making. I do like Watson and he was one of my favorite players on the PGA. Of course if you really read my comment ie 'golf forum' you should have known I was talking about his muckraker's comment since it did not apply to GOLF. Have a nice day!!!!!!!

People need not think that a hip replacement surgery is the end of their life/career. Just like Tom Watson, he went through a hip replacement surgery to further improve the condition of his life. At the end of the day, we can only hope that the surgery will not result to this

This clarifies that not all hip replacement will result to complications, like what I have read in . Successful hip replacement depends on many factors and i can happen to everyone.

Athletes undergoing hip replacement surgery has become fairly common nowadays and most of them have also gone back to their game. To name a few are Jack Nicklaus, Bo Jackson, Floyd Landis and many more especially football players. Good thing, these athletes are not going through what other patients are suffering as I've read here .
