Title

Assessment of surgical patient risk

Project Description

We are developing tools to predict surgical risk in order to better inform patients and providers, intervene preoperatively, more appropriately utilize limited resources,  and ultimately decrease postoperative risk.  There are many aspects of this which have yet to be worked out, lending themselves to discreet research projects. All of these are aimed at publication in high-impact journals and presentation at national meetings.
