Please Give The Lady The Scalpel, Thanks

HEALTH-TECHNOLOGY-SURGERYGirl scouts are in the cub scouts now.  Pick your gender any day and you are what you say?  Are men and women different or aren’t we?  It’s all frustrating but I will tell you this, on the day I come in for my surgical operation you better identify as a woman! Why?  Because of a new study, published in the journal BMJ.

The research looked at all the people in Ontario, Canada who had operations between 2007 and 2015 as well as their surgeons which is a pretty significant sample. The, even after taking into account more difficult cases, patients of female surgeons were four percent less likely to die, be readmitted or experience complications 30 days after their surgery compared to patients of male surgeons.

Not a big percentage but when it come to someone cutting on my body I will take every advantage that I can.

So why would this be?  Time Magazine which reported on the findings says researchers think it may be because surgery is a traditionally male profession, and female surgeons have likely had to overcome greater challenges to get into the operating room.  It’s that “I have to be better to be considered as good” kind of thing.
