I believe we have a clear obligation to provide patients with as much information about their care as we can. Informed patients simply make better decision about treatment options and enjoy better outcomes. I also have a healthy respect for surgery, and am of the opinion that it should be avoided if possible. However, if your condition requires an operation, it should be done in a way that preserves uninvolved tissue as much as possible - i.e., minimally invasive.
