Surgeon Volume is Associated With Cost and Variation in Surgical Treatment of Proximal Humeral Fractures
Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research, 07/31/2012
Jain NB et al. – Higher surgeon volume was associated with lower hospital costs for proximal humeral fractures. Therefore, policies on minimum volume requirements by hospitals may result in substantial cost savings. There is provider–based practice variation in the surgical treatment of proximal humeral fractures and evidence–based guidelines in this area are needed.
