Art Sedrakyan, M.D., Ph.D., publishes high-impact paper in The Lancet, discusses the importance of surgical registries

From The Lancet: "Rigorous registries are clearly vital for the transparent, long-term study of all new innovations but Sedraykan and colleagues go further, suggesting that almost all surgical patients should be entered into registries. Major national all-inclusive registries provide high-quality feedback to surgeons on their own outcomes, and have a proven role in facilitating the improvement they suggest."
