Variation in orthopaedic surgeons' perceptions about the indications for rotator cuff surgery
Attitude of Health Personnel
Practice Patterns, Physicians'
We found significant variation in surgical decision-making and a lack of clinical agreement among orthopaedic surgeons about rotator cuff surgery. There was a positive correlation between the volume of procedures performed by the surgeon and the surgeon's perception of outcome, with surgeons who had a higher procedure volume being more enthusiastic about rotator cuff surgery than those who had a lower procedure volume.
