Atlas

The Surgery Workforce Atlas is an interactive, web-based map that shows, county-by-county and state-by state, where shortages of surgeons and other physicians threaten patient access to timely, safe, high-quality, and affordable care. Surgeon and physician data were updated in October 2012 to reflect more current (2011) data.
