SAN DIEGO, Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Turns out surgeons who perform at high-volumes are typically the best surgeons for the job, especially in complex or risky surgeries, according to Mexico Bariatric Center. The analysis by Mexico Bariatric Center (http://www.mexicobariatriccenter.com) released eight (8) principles consistent with scientific and medical research, which would contribute to surgeons performing at the highest level, which can reduce surgical mortality and decreases complications.
"With recent news of bariatric surgeons in Mexico - who perform surgery on U.S. and Canadian citizens - grabbing attention because of poor outcomes. It's important to find, empirically, what's the best surgical practices for our patients, and to model after that," says Ron Elli, Ph.D., director of Mexico Bariatric Center.
The findings of our review are striking, suggesting surgical success rates can be somewhat predicted. By examining the following criteria, patients can determine the best surgeon who would provide the highest surgical outcomes.
How to Predict Surgeon's Success Rates:
- Volume of Procedure Performed
- Weekly Schedule of Surgeries
- Surgeon's Rest and Sleep
- Surgeon's Daily Limit
- Hospital Volume
Looking at dozens of factors which could increase or decrease surgical outcomes, eight principles where found. Among these eight criteria includes, the principle that you should look for surgeons who performs surgery in volume, or surgeons who have performed in differing levels of complexity, from low-complexity, medium-complexity and high-complexity cases.
"With this meta analysis, we've found the best practices for our surgeons, and we're delighted to know that we've already put most of these procedures into place," Ron continues. "We've always been committed to our patients, and we'll continue by adding new guidelines for our center in Mexico."

When patients are undergoing complex or risky surgeries, these principles are especially important to reduce patient complications and risks, while promoting the highest possible patient success. This analysis is important to show that for both general and complex surgeries, including bariatric, knee and hip replacement, patients would do well to look for surgeons who follow these principles. We also encourage individuals to not compromise patient safety with more affordable surgical centers.
