New research suggests patients achieve improved results when treated by female surgeons.
In a cohort study of one million patients, those treated by a female surgeon were less likely to experience death, hospital readmission or significant medical complications at 90 days or one year after surgery.
This association was seen across nearly all subgroups defined by patient, procedure, surgeon, anaesthesiologist and hospital characteristics.
