Question by Bobbin: Is a “routine hysterectomy” a misnomer?
An item in the newspaper today refers to “routine hysterectomies.” Should this type of surgery ever be called “routine,” whether there are complications or not?
Answer by ScoTTif there was such a thing as routine surgery (any surgery) the patient would not need to be talked to by the doctor, the nurse, the anesthesiologist, and then asked to sign a paper that says “i accept that i could die on the operating table” in proper legal languageAnswer by QNo, it should not. It should always be done due to some kind of physical problem, and should not be routine. That said, docs usually say “routine” when they think there won’t be any complications. Given that so many hysterectomies are unnecessary, there are a lot of them performed where there won’t be any complications, since the patient was already healthy.
