Did you know surgeons can serve as a plastic surgery expert witness in legal cases? The expertise of surgeons is necessary for healthcare compliance, disability evaluations, and malpractice concerns.
The benefit of having a plastic surgeon serving as a witness is they may offer their opinion based on knowledge, skills, and training. To qualify as an expert witness, the provider must be certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery.
The board has a code of ethics that must be followed by all plastic surgeons. As such, it establishes trust between providers and the public. By honoring the code of ethics, providers earn the right and respect to serve as expert witnesses in legal cases.
