Like an English proverb “Beggars have no choice” selecting a surgery for your present ailment, is doctor’s territory and you are simply no voice. The choice is made by a surgeon and his is a final verdict.

Not so, I think when you need a surgery, there are always alternatives and optional methods of surgery. A good doctor will show you the options. If he is genuine, he will discuss the pros and cons of each surgical method.

If he is humble, he will tell you, which procedure he does best. If he is human, he will tell you cost of surgery and where you can go for cheap, affordable surgery. He will not add up to his charges once committed, except in exceptional circumstances. To his mind, your well being post surgery is first and foremost thing. If you have any doubt, discuss and have a second opinion!
