Surgical infection

Surgical site infections (SSI) are infections that occur after surgery, usually within 30 days after the operation or up to one year if an implant was placed during the surgery. These infections can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi that enter the surgical site during or after the surgery. Surgical infections are a major concern for healthcare providers because they can lead to significant morbidity and mortality, prolonged hospitalization, increased healthcare costs, and legal consequences.
