Volume of Common Procedures
One element that is associated with good care is hospital volume. While researchers are still trying to understand the exact relationship between volume and quality, studies have found that surgical teams with experience - that is, routinely performing a sufficient number of cases - have better results.
Below are the number of times BIDMC has performed certain procedures in recent years. NOTE: Volume definitions changed in FY2017.
