Dr. Gutowski and colleagues composed recommendations for surgeons on ways to improve patient safety during surgery. This work was just published in the medical journal, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. While the vast majority of patients experience a safe surgical experience when treated by Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, there is always room for improvement. So when considering a cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery procedure, be sure to seek out a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (which requires its members to earn at least 10 credits of patient safety education every year).
