I’m in orthopedics. I remember the day I was reminded that “pain is not a life threat” and the “vast majority of orthopedic surgeries are elective.” That gives a different perspective. We do all we can to help as many as possible but when reasons beyond our control force us to decline doing surgery on someone, I wish more people realized it’s not our choice or our preference.
