Finding the qualified surgeon

Just wondered if there is any patient advocate organization; a medical consumer group; or a website which tracks surgical data and the doctors who perform them. Looking for data on the surgeons for their success rates and complication rates.  Reading internet reviews doesn't really tell the whole story when it comes to skills and experience.

    A1btr - If you google Best Hospitals for Neurology & Neurosurgery, one of the first listed results should be a listing of hospitals with high scoring results.  I'm sure you will recognize the organization performing the rankings.  Within the rankings of each hospital are links to the department(s) that often have a bio for each doctor in the hospital department.  I know this is kind of an indirect way to answer your question.
