In this article, the author focuses on the impact of experience of a surgeon on his performance. More experienced surgeons perform complex operations with better outcomes than younger surgeons. One of the reasons for this is perhaps the quality of training a surgeon receives during residency or fellowship. Senior surgical faculty are also better at training residents because they know that a technical error made by a resident can be rectified by the senior surgeon's experience.
