Hospital stays with leading female operating room procedures in the U.S. 2012

This statistic displays the total number of hospital stays in the United States for most common female operating room procedures performed in 2012. During this year, there were 242.000 total stays with a spinal fusion performed on female patients. Approximately two-thirds of hospitalizations include some form of procedure, although many, like blood transfusions or vaccinations, can be done outside of operating rooms. Costs for hospitalizations with operating room procedures are often much more costly than those without.
