  • Video recording as part of the deal?

    Should I require that I have my hernia surgery recorded on a video camera?

    I will most likely be paying for my surgery straight out of my wallet. I might as well require that it has to be recorded. I can think of a few good benefits for me. One being documentation, for whatever reason. Two being hard evidence should I ever need to take the surgeon to court. Three, I don’t trust anyone, least of all a person I only heard or read about over the Internet and met for a 15 minute consultation. My life experience has taught me to not put too much trust in other people. If I could – which I obviously cannot – I would rather do the surgery myself. If you want something done right you better do it yourself. That has always been my motto. But not this time around…

    Am I asking too much? What would it take for a surgeon in a private clinic to record the operation? Why do I feel like I have to bribe him to do this for me? Shouldn’t video recording be part of the procedure in 21 century?

    I know when they use robotic surgery and maybe even lapro surgery there is a camera that automatically takes video and pictures.
    i think for open repairs it would have to be requested.
