Overlapping surgery, also known as double-booking, refers to a controversial practice in which a single attending surgeon supervises 2 or more operations, in different operating rooms, at the same time. Entitled Association of Overlapping Surgery With Increased Risk for Complications Following Hip Surgery, A Population-Based, Matched Cohort Study and published online December 4, 2017 by JAMA Intern Med., the authors found that for "patients undergoing overlapping procedures, there was an approximately 90% increase in the risk for surgical complications at 1 year."
