1 in 4 Surgeons Insures Their Hands

17 Oct

According to a survey conducted by Truth on Call for MSNBC, 1 in 4 surgeons insures their hands.  Of 100 surgeons surveyed, 24 surgeons insured their hands, 37 do not, and 39 are considering doing so.  Joseph Colella, bariatric surgeon and director of robotic surgery at UPMC’s Magee Women’s Hospital, insures his hands for about $8 million. 

Insurance policies can cost surgeons millions of dollars in premiums; however, many surgeons say the policy is worth the cost.
