New Surgeon Ratings Website by Consumers’ Checkbook

Interesting new surgeon rating website - Surgeon Ratings Website by Consumers’ Checkbook

Choosing the best surgeon can reduce your chances of death, complications, or other bad outcomes. This website, based on analyses of more than five million surgeries done in hospital by more than 50,000 surgeons, shows you which surgeons’ patients Checkbook found had the lowest (or highest) rates of deaths, prolonged lengths of stay (indicating likely complications), or need to be readmitted to hospital, after our risk-adjustments for patient characteristics.

How widely used is this surgeon ratings site? I don't want skewed ratings if too few people are using it.

I really don't know how much that site is used.  I found it and just placed it as additional information about surgeons.

I have a list of surgeons that many people have used, but again no guarantee that is it perfect.  I always suggest visiting several and see how you feel about them.  You can also ask for other patient stories from them.

This is a list of anterior surgeons.  Again, no guarantee about it and I am sure there are many more surgeons.  I usually list surgeons that I have read many patients stories about or had good information about hip replacement.

https://hipsforyou.com/anterior-doctors-list.php

The various list are just a starting point.  You will know whether you like them or trust them after you meet or talk with them. 

I wish I could help more.  Many of the surgeons on my https://surfacehippy.info  site have many patient stories listed for them.  Also the Hip Talk Discussion Group has many members that will talk with you about their hip resurfacing experiences.  Hip Resurfacing is a more difficult surgery than a THR so the surgeons there are very skilled.  All surgeons who do hip resurfacing also do THRs.  You might want to look at that list

https://surfacehippy.info/hip-resurfacing-doctors/   I have interviewed many of them and know they have excellent outcomes.  So that list might help you too.

I wish you the best.
