I have MRSA infection. Is it because of surgery ?

I recently had back surgery to remove hardware that was put in 18 months ago when doing a fusion. My question is how and from what could I have gotten MRSA infection in my surgical site. I have had to have additional surgery to debri the sight. It has been a nightmare.
