Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Hospitals report annual procedure volume for plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures including: 

  • Breast Repair or Reconstruction
  • Skin graft or Reconstruction

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
