3rd surgery at Barrow in Phoenix

I’ve had 1 surgery in Albuquerque and 1 at Barrow also. Now they’re looking at doing a 3rd surgery at Barrow again after finishing a MEG test. How do surgeries work and how common is this?


I don't know enough about

I don't know enough about surgeries or your specific situation to say if what you're experiencing is normal, but I can tell you I had my surgery at Barrow and it was a wonderful place, really top of the field, and wonderful staff. If you have a question about how surgery works, speak to whoever you have been in contact with from the hospital, ask for more information, maybe schedule a full consultation with your potential surgeon--and bring someone with you to the appointment. Best of luck!B
