    Hi,

    On average, how many histopathology for appendicitis do you perform per day? Hospital vs office?

    Yes most of our appendectomies come from the surgeon’s office. I also do a lot of kidney transplant evaluations from the out patient side. You know, where the donor wakes up in bathtub full of ice.

    your question is not being directly answered because it makes poor sense.
    i don’t know of paths who get appendices as surgeons office procedures.
    i do NOT equate that with a surgical center.
