Dr. Andrew Hajduczek describes the role experience plays when performing bariatric surgery.
Experience matters in bariatric surgery because, even though most of the time it’s a fairly routine operation, often enough it’s not and you encounter both anatomical difficulties, as well as technical mishaps, that have to be corrected properly and safely. And if they are not, they may result in a disaster and it’s something that you learn by doing hundreds and thousands of operations on all sorts of patients dealing with all different anatomical findings.
