About this Episode

Headlines about the future of surgery often focus on robots in the operating room– but innovation in surgical care and operations goes beyond robotics. In reality, the solutions to surgery leaders' problems – like inefficiency and dwindling margins – may be less futuristic than you'd think.

In this episode, host Rachel (Rae) Woods invites Advisory Board experts Isis Monteiro, Miles Cottier, and Paul Trigonoplos to discuss what is next for the future of surgery, and what it will actually take for health systems to make surgical care profitable again. They discuss innovations in the OR, opportunities to improve efficiency, and why it might be time to think differently about the future of surgery.
