- •Patient reported outcomes (PRO) allow patients' perception of health care to be evaluated.
- •Understanding factors impacting PRO's that are within the control of the surgeons are essential to improve outcomes.
- •The volume of tissue removed during breast conservation surgery, as well as the need for re-excision impact PRO's.
- •The negative impact of re-excisions of PRO's supports their consideration as a quality measure in the performance of breast conservation surgery.
- •Satisfaction with breast, and psychological and physical well-being of the chest are negatively affected by the volume of breast tissue removed.
