This study determined how gynecologists'sex, beliefs, appropriateness ratings, and practice characteristics influence hysterectomy rates in North Carolina.
Gynecologists who performed hysterectomies at higher rates were further from training, practiced in areas with fewer gynecologists, and had more patients with abnormal bleeding or cancer.
Male gynecologists performed 60% more hysterectomies than female gynecologists, but this may have been because they were further from their training.
