Despite the current sterile techniques used for all surgeries, infections still occur in less than 1 out of 100 procedures. The treatment options will vary, depending on the location of the infection.
Infections can range from very minor ones that are only treated with antibiotics, to very major infections, requiring a surgery to treat the infection.
