How does Surgical Coaching help surgeons improve their performance?

A surgical coach guides a surgeon to think differently about their actions and outcomes. The coach also holds surgeons accountable for making changes and reflecting on how those changes affect performance. For surgeons who want to make changes to their practice, but are struggling to figure out how, a Surgical Coach can help make a plan and stick to it.

In the video below, Dr. Caprice Greenberg, breast surgeon and President of the Academy for Surgical Coaching shares her story about how she improved her re-excision rate through working with a surgical coach.
