IMA shares updated guidelines by the American College of Surgeons with its members

Raises awareness about the guidelines surgeons must follow 
New Delhi, 28th April, 2016:  IMA shared with its members the American College of Surgeons (ACS) guidelines with regard to the practice of one surgeon performing in two surgeries scheduled at the same time. These guidelines have been presented as a part of a document ‘Statements on Principles’. According to the ACS while it is against concurrent or simultaneous surgeries (those in which the critical or key components of the procedures for which the primary attending surgeon is responsible are occurring all or in part at the same time), overlapping surgeries if catered to in a proper fashion may be acceptable, for instance, if key or critical elements of the first operation are finished, freeing up the primary attending to start an operation in another room while others finish the first operation.
