Several procedures vie for the title of most common surgical procedure in the United States. Here are some references: |
Despite cataract surgery's prevalence--it is the most common surgical procedure in the United States--its best possible outcome still leaves patients seeing clearly only at fixed distances.
After cataract surgery, which is the most common surgical procedure in the United States, most patients do not require thick glasses or contact lenses.
CIRCUMCISION, the most commone surgical procedure in the United States,' has been affected by the societal and economic changes that have influenced surgical practice in recent years.
Prostate surgery is the second most common surgical procedure in the United States.
In addition, some drugs treat the symptoms but do not stop the prostate from growing. In more severe cases, surgery is called for, making it the second-most-common surgical procedure in the United States.
Next to cesarean sections, hysterectomies are the most common surgical procedure in the United States today, with about 590,000 of them performed annually.
