Dr. Rod J. Rohrich Stresses Role of Evidence-Based Medicine in Plastic Surgery
Date:8/8/2013

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 08, 2013

In a recently published report in the latest issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society Plastic Surgeons, authors Felmont F. Eaves, M.D., Rod J. Rohrich, M.D., and Jonathan M. Sykes, M.D. jointly report on the state of evidence-based medicine in plastic surgery. Titled "Taking Evidence based Plastic surgery to the Next Level: Report of the Second Summit on Evidence-Based Plastic Surgery", the report underscores the importance of evidence-based medicine in the field of Plastic Surgery, provides a summary of the recent Summit of Evidence-Based Plastic Surgery, and outlines steps to help accelerate adoption.

Evidence-based medicine (EBM), also referred to as evidence-based health care or evidence-based practice, is the application of reliable, scientific medical data in the assessment of risk versus benefit of medical treatments and patient care. Physicians who practice EBM use trustworthy evidence based on well controlled medical research to help guide their clinical treatments, surgical decision making, diagnosis, and individual patient management.

"Being considered an expert is no longer good enough. Today, in order to provide the best patient care, we must also practice evidence-based medicine," says Dr. Rod Rohrich, one of the report's authors.

In the report, the authors identify several reasons why EBM, although seemingly obvious and intuitive, is not already widely applied by plastic surgeons in their treatment of patients.

One of the major factors identified was the implication that physicians have inadequate knowledge or decision making ability. To avoid those implications, physicians are tempted to rely on possibly outdated training from their time in medical school, unproven traditions
