Positive Hysterectomy Outcomes Linked to Experienced, High Volume Surgeons

A recently published study shows that hysterectomy outcomes are positively linked to surgeon experience and volume. Basically the study shows that surgical treatment by high-volume surgeons, like Dr. Joseph Gauta, decreased the incidence of operative injuries by 31% over treatment by other gynecologists. Also, operative times were lower, costs were lower, and length of stay was shortened in the group operated on by high-volume surgeons.
