WHAT SPECIALTIES AND PROCEDURE TYPES HAS YOUR PLATFORM BEEN VALIDATED ON?

C-SATS has done extensive research in different specialties and modalities. This list is a sample of some of the specialties and procedures C-SATS has assessed.

A complete list of published research can be found on our Validation page. Research projects that are ahead of print or under review by medical journals are on-going and will be posted when released. 


WHICH TYPE OF CASES SHOULD I SEND IN?

In order to obtain an accurate (and anonymous) comparison to other surgeons in your specialty, C-SATS recommends sending in cases from our approved list of procedures. This will also enhance the learning opportunities provided by our platform. 


WHO ARE THE REVIEWERS?

A large panel of pre-qualified reviewers, which includes surgeons, physician assistants, and registered nurse first assistants. The key to obtaining an objective and accurate score is to acquire multiple data points from a large panel of reviewers.
