Infections after surgery are one of the main ways that people get Staph and MRSA. I just created a new page showing photos of a MRSA infection as it progressed over 14 months. The series of images show the progress of a skin infection that has not responded well to conventional antibiotic treatments. You can see the progression photos here:

The photo series highlights the risks that can come from surgical wound infections. Many of these surgical infections can last longer and cause more problems than the original ailment corrected by the surgery.
Avoiding unneeded surgery is definitely the best choice for your health. But if surgery is needed, taking steps to minimize the risk of postoperative infections is crucial. Fortunately, you can take several steps to help you reduce hospital infections.
To your best health,
