Did you anyone look at the propublica data on surgeons? Is that a good tool to pick a surgeon?
I have met three patients of a surgeon and all of whom are happy with him. He did not have more than 20 patients (on medicare) and propublica did not report his statistics.
There is another doctor who has 0 complications out of 29 surgeries on propublica. (Theses are not success, its a report of readmission, death etc).
What do you think?
MRI shows C4-C7 severe steonosis. Pain in hand.
