A surgical site infection (SSI) is an infection that is acquired during the surgical process. Bacteria can get into the incision area and cause an infection. SSIs can be minor, or occasionally can increase complications that result in a longer length of stay in the hospital or readmission of patients.

Patients can help reduce their chances of infection by following the pre- and post-operative instructions given to you by your surgeon and healthcare team.
