operating room medical team in surgeryFinding out you need surgery can create anxiety and a long list of questions.  On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, Saturday, January 3 at 9 a.m. CT, we'll rebroadcast a program that discusses at least five questions to ask your surgeon. Chair of Mayo's surgical quality subcommittee Robert Cima, M.D., will be here to walk us through those questions and more. There are things you can do in advance of any surgery that will make the whole process run more smoothly and maybe even speed your recovery.  We hope you'll join us!

Myth or Fact:  The duration of an operation doesn't matter.
