abstract
The relationship between surgeon-volume to operative mortality is well established for elective surgical procedures in the United States. However, the importance of this relationship in emergency operations is not understood. Using a primary dataset looking at emergent colon resections over a three year period at one tertiary medical center, we examined the relationship between surgeon volume and operative mortality for emergent colorectal surgical procedures.
