A surgery site infection, or SSI, is an infection that occurs at a patient’s operative site following surgery.
Your skin is a natural barrier against external, foreign contaminants. When a breech in this defense occurs, sometimes pathogens may gain access to the area and cause a postoperative infection.
On average, we see one SSI for every 3,000 Neurosurgical shunt, Orthopedic spine and Cardiothoracic cases.
