Ever think that those younger doctors with their new-fangled ways aren’t nearly as good as the seasoned pros? Well while you might think that the veterans have the advantage, researchers are now saying that in the battle of old versus new it’s technique not technology that wins the race. In fact, if properly done, new techniques hold far greater possibilities for improvement than older techniques, and the new surgeons learning these techniques directly in school may be the the best adept to their correct implementation.
