Postoperative surgical complications have the potential to develop after any procedure, and patients need to weigh the surgical benefits against the possible risks. These risks are usually small, but complications may result from a multitude of reasons, such as systemic illness, adverse reaction to anesthetic drugs, or improper procedure selection. If multiple preexisting conditions exist, collaboration is required between the medical and surgical disciplines for maximal treatment success.
