Would you wish to have hernia surgery by a surgeon who only does 50 surgeries or less a year?
Think about that.
What if your surgeon only did 25?!

You probably would say, “thank you, but no thank you.”
Well not for these 22,000 patients!! They apparently were ok with having a surgeon with such limited experience—-50 or less done a year. As I posted elsewhere, this study is biased in that it concerns a population of surgeries done at general hospitals. We (I presume) at HT consider a specialist, an expert surgeon necessary, one who has much if not great experience. I don’t think doing two or less surgeries a month cuts it!! (That is, for the nearly half of the 22,000 concerned)
In short, we must conclude this “research” study is irrelevant.
