'Patient-choice' C-section rate rises 36%: HealthGrades study

TD> 3.13 Arizona 15.66 1.57 1.81

"When we first did this study three years ago, we found that 'patient-choice' C-sections were increasing at a rate of 19 percent, between 1999 and 2001," continued Dr. Collier. "Now we are seeing the rate increase by 36.6 percent between 2001 and 2003, a dramatic acceleration that we believe is driven by heightened awareness of the option, increased support and advocacy, and women waiting until they are older to have their first child."

Since the release of HealthGrades' first study on this topic in 2003, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' Ethics Committee released an opinion supporting C-sections by patient choice "�so long as the patient is fully informed of the risks and benefits of this procedure over vaginal delivery."
