All operations carry risk. But with improvements in technology, in surgical procedures and with more surgery being performed at a younger age, the risk of complications is continually being reduced. The possible complications are related to the specific type of surgery being performed and they vary widely depending on the nature of the problem which requires surgery. The presence of other medical conditions such as diabetes, lung disease, or kidney disease can increase the risk of complications in some patients. Anyhow you should discuss the operation and its risks with your doctor prior to the procedure.
