I came across an interesting video that discusses Surgical volume while browsing Medscape. It is an old article but still relevant. In summary, high volume surgeon gynaecologist tends to have complex patients, fewer complications and improved outcomes. In contrast, low volume surgeons tend to have higher rates of intraoperative complications. This outcome appears to be uniform across gynaecology, urogynaecology and gynae oncology. I guess, we probably know that, but good to know research backs it as well. Also, the question is what is considered a high volume of surgical cases?
