Abstract:

Physical tools often privilege the average characteristics of the male body. However, technological advances sometimes introduce more adaptable tools which are adjustable and require less physical force to operate. We investigate whether the introduction of such tools correlates with better job performance for women employees as compared to men. We examine this question among laparoscopic surgeons using microdata from the State of Florida between 2009 and 2015. Standard laparoscopic tools privilege men because they are built for taller users with larger hands. Robotic surgical tools, in contrast, are customizable to a surgeon’s physique and require less physical force to operate. Our analyses suggest that the use of robotic tools correlates with significant performance improvements for both men and women. However, female surgeons experience twice the surgical performance improvement as compared with male surgeons. These improvements further intensify when the surgeon has a high recent caseload or works in a maledominated surgical unit. Yet, we find that women are no more likely to use robotic surgical tools than men are. Drawing on ex post interviews with surgeons, we posit that gender barriers may limit women’s access to cutting-edge tools that supplant outmoded tools designed with men’s bodies in mind
