Is it necessary to cut hair with a razor before any surgery?

Dr. K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and Group Editor in Chief MEDtalks, will talk about cutting hair with a razor before any surgery in this video. He says that we should not cut hair with razor as it can cause micro-injuries or micro-abrasions and has more chances of surgical site infections. Clippers or depilatory creams or hair removing creams can be used to remove hair.
