General Surgery

Surgery centers report annual procedure volume for general surgery procedures including:

  • Cholecystectomy and Common Duct Exploration
  • Excision of Skin Lesion
  • Hemorrhoid Procedure
  • Inguinal and Femoral Hernia Repair
  • Laparoscopy
  • Lumpectomy or Quadrantectomy of Breast
  • Mastectomy
  • Other Hernia Repair

Experts agree that patients often have better outcomes when their procedure is performed by a surgeon and surgical teams with adequate, ongoing experience performing a particular procedure. However, Leapfrog has not yet established minimum hospital or surgeon volume standards.

 

Patients Included in the Measure

  • Outpatients (Patients who are admitted and discharged on the same day)

  • Adults and Children
