      I guess fatalities can happen during any surgery, but as long as you are being treated by a capable surgeon, I wouldn’t think that a fatality would be the likely outcome.

      Something to keep in mind is that in the UK, we are still not attaching artificial limbs to amputees through any surgical procedure ( we still don’t understand the human body that well! There is loads to investigate still!)
