In brief: Be data driven!
Cardiac surgeons participate in a national database sponsored by the society of thoracic surgeons (www.
Sts.Org) which compares different cardiac surgical programs based on adherence to protocols and outcomes. I recommend any patient facing cardiac surgery to discuss this data with any prospective cardiac surgeon, if possible.

In brief: Ask your doctor
The best surgeon is hard too define.
Ask yourself which condition requires what type o treatment? Has the person done sufficient number of procedure? Hoe have these cases gone? Ask nurses and doctors and if possible some ptients about their opinion of the individual surgeon.
