There is no way to answer this question.  Undoubtedly, surgical intervention saves many lives each year, but, there is no way to know the outcome of each case if surgery had not been performed.  Example: cardiac bypass - seems to save lives, but some people would have lived anyway.  Example : C-section - seems to save lives but some proportion performed are not medically required.

You might contact your local hospital, get information from them.
