Are female surgeons better than men??!
The mass media were quick to pick up on two papers in JAMA Surgery last week with headlines such as "Patients have better outcomes with female surgeons", and "Should you pick the sex of your surgeon?". So what's it all about??We chat with lead author of one of these papers. Dr Chris Wallis, Urologist at the University of Toronto, whose looked at outcomes for more than 1.2 million (!!) patients undergoing a range of surgery types, and showed that patients operated on by female surgeons had less complications and better survival. Another study from Sweden showed similar benefits in patients undergoing gallbladder surgery. Chris tells us more. Plus Aoife McVey brings us some great social media highlights this week.

We are joined by study authors Professor Caroline Moore and Professor Shonit Punwani to discuss. Even better on our YouTube channelLinks:BMJ Oncology paper Coverage in Urology Times
