Prevention During Surgery
When people have surgery, they are placed at an increased risk for infection due to exposure, surgical trauma, and a variety of other factors. Due to this risk, people undergoing surgery often receive antibiotics beforehand. This gives their bodies a certain level of protection against any infection that may occur. Rocephin is commonly the antibiotic of choice under these circumstances because it is effective against a broad variety of bacteria.
