Paper Abstract

Laser surgery is a standard operating procedure for many specialists. These innovative technologies have dramatically reduced the risk/benefit ratios of health care. These reductions have led to marked growths in health care utilization resulting in the spiraling increases in health care costs. With innovative technologies, the question regarding health care delivery has changed from "can it be done?" to "should it be done?" Physicians do not currently have enough the information necessary to answer this question.
