    Background and Purpose: Surgery is a high-stakes 'performance.' Yet, unlike athletes or musicians, surgeons do not engage in routine 'warm-up' exercises before 'performing' in the operating room. We study the impact of a preoperative warm-up exercise routine (POWER) on surgeon performance during...

    Opportunity cost is the value of an activity forgone for participation in some other activity. With respect to surgery, an innovation incurs an opportunity cost when it uses additional operating time that could otherwise be used in a productive way. This report describes an example of assessing...
