Best Paper PRS

With more recent emphasis on patient safety, particularly during the time of surgery, Dr. Gutowski and his colleagues at the University of Wisconsin compiled a guide for plastic surgeons to use in their practices. As seen in the video below, Dr. Rohrich award this paper as one of the best papers in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery as determined by the number of people reading and downloading it.

“I believe that we have a duty to provide the best possible care for our patients. This includes providing a safe environment during surgery when a patient may be most vulnerable. These two papers, along with the patient safety courses I teach at national meetings, are intended to reduce complications and improve outcomes in plastic surgery.”

Karol A. Gutowski, M.D.
