Value based surgery – the Journal of the ASGBI

Today, the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland has published its Summer 2019 issue, including several contributions around a common topic: Value Based Surgery.

It has been an honour and a privilege to coordinate an outstanding group of surgeons, who have written thoughtful contributions regarding #Telemedicine, #PrecisionSurgery, #DigitalSurgery, #ERAS, and #Outcomes. The list of authors is as follows:

Muir Gray

Luis Sánchez-Guillen

Arfon Powell

Gemma Humm and Manish Chand

Mónica Millán

Rebecca Fish

I invite you to read their work here https://www.asgbi.org.uk/userfiles/file/journals/summer-2019-jasgbi.pdf

In order to transform the current practice of surgery into #ValuebasedSurgery, surgical leaders must address the following 5 common problems:

  1. Variability in quality and outcomes
  2. Harm
  3. Waste
  4. Inequities and Inequalities
  5. Lack of prevention

Coauthoring an article on #Valuebasedmedicine with Sir Muir Gray was particularly challenging, and funny. Quite an honour, and an unforgettable experience.
