In brief: Nobody knows
There is no official or unofficial ranking.
Ask your doctor for advice. Talk to your friends about doctors they have experience with. Check with the texas board if there are any complaints.

Surgeons are like pilots: if you ask one to name the top 3, they have trouble coming up with 2 more names.
If you are looking for an excellent thoracic surgeon, i would suggest the following resources: 1-go to the society of thoracic surgeons website. 2-ask your primary care physician.3-contact the top 3 hospitals in your area. Most importantly, meet with them and make sure they communicate well.

Depending of what medical problem the pt is facing.
Usually teaching hospitals from universities have experienced physicians and they may know the latest treatments or technics. There are some centers specialized in certain new procedures for specific diseases. You can consult your own dr., your friends, the internet, your insurance or your local teaching hospital. Do not rely on paid ads.

In brief: Well.....
While there are no rankings of that kind, you can look at things like reputation, where someone trained and how much surgical volume they do.
If i needed thoracic surgery in texas for a malignant condition, i'd go to M.D. Anderson cancer center in houston. One if the best thoracic units in the world, imho. I say that with no formal affiliation with institution.

There is no Best Thoracic Surgeon for any area. If you have a disease that is rare seek out a Thoracic Surgeon who has a concentrated experience with that disease. If you have a disease that occurs commonly then seek out a Boarded Thoracic Surgeon that is fairly close to where you live. Keep in mind that "famous" and "best" are 2 different things, and that nurses know who the good doctors are.
In brief: Steven Swisher
One of the best thoracic surgeons in the country and in texas is steven swisher at the university of texas md anderson cancer center in houston.
His focus is on adult thoracic oncology with special expertise in lung and esophageal cancers.
