How does Amino determine Dr. McHugh’s vasectomy experience?
To give you an overview of Dr. McHugh’s practice experience, we show you how his practice compares to other doctors nationwide.
To determine Dr. McHugh’s experience treating vasectomy patients, we use our database of over 9 billion doctor-patient interactions. In our database, we look at every doctor who is a family practitioner, urologist, or surgeon, because these are the specialties that our data shows are most likely to treat vasectomy patients.
From this group of doctors, we rank doctors nationwide by the number of vasectomy patients they treated from 2014–2018. We give Dr. McHugh a badge if we have enough data to determine that he is among the top-ranked doctors for vasectomy, meaning he sees a lot of vasectomy patients compared to other doctors.
For vasectomy, Dr. McHugh has a top 5% badge, because he treated more vasectomy patients than 95% of similar doctors nationwide for 2014–2018.
We determine which of Dr. McHugh’s patients receive vasectomy by looking at the medical billing codes that appear on the electronic health insurance claims from their interactions with Dr. McHugh. Because there are tens of thousands of unique medical billing codes used to describe different types of health care interactions, Amino groups billing codes that describe similar health conditions or services into a single category that we display on our website with a user-friendly name (e.g. “diabetes”, “asthma”, “knee replacement”).
We count each distinct patient only once for any given reason for visit, but the same patient may be counted toward multiple reasons for visit if Dr. McHugh treated that patient for multiple reasons.
It is very difficult to sew microscopic suture the size of a strand of hair to connect an opening the size of the “O” in God on a penny looking through a magnifying operating microscope. 12-15 sutures are placed on each side to complete the procedure.
It takes experience, patience, and having a “knack for it” to perform this procedure it in a time efficient and successful fashion.
The video shows the completion of one of 12-15 sutures necessary to complete one side.
Note the fluidity of completing the knot and the lack of wasted motion. This takes years of experience.
At Northeast Georgia Urological Associates we perform on a regular basis (50 a year) reversals in our accredited surgery center. You can call, email or text to arrange a free in office or by phone consultation. We will respond promptly and look forward to speaking with you.
Predictive factors for vasectomy include income, number of biologic children, access to care, education level, religion, and race.
