Coming next month in JACS, and online now: Public perceptions of overlapping surgery

Michael Kent, MD, FACS; Richard Whyte, MD, FACS; Aaron Fleishman; David Tomich, MD; Lachlan Forrow, MD; and James Rodrigue, PhD, found in their survey that a small minority of the general public is aware of the practice of overlapping surgery. The majority of responders were not supportive of the practice, although they would consider it acceptable in specific circumstances. However, responders consistently reported that the practice of overlapping surgery should be disclosed during the informed consent process.
