All aspects of Surgical Audit
Complex vascular grafting procedures.
My data for Aortic and Carotid surgery are now within the public domain. The figures for both operations are good, with the elective aortic data showing a 0% mortality over the last 5 years.
I have a particular interest in the development of day surgery for a wide variety of conditions. My Daycase rate for a standard group of 25 general surgical procedures over 5 years (2008-12) is 90% compared to a national peer average of 55 %
