Do VR doctors keep stats?
Sun, 09-11-2011 - 6:06pm

We are planning on a VR in spring 2012. We have our choice of surgeon narrowed down to three, based on location, price, and good recommendations I have read online. How to make the final choice? I would like to know which surgeon has the best success rates, but do doctors keep stats on this? And is their information reliable? Any advice on making the final choice of surgeon?

They should keep stats. Depending on who the doctor's are, you may be able to look them up online. If not, you can call the doctor's office and ask them for their success rates. Of course, it varies depending on the personal situation of each patient, but they should still have some numbers available.

As for finally picking which one to go with, go with the one you are most comfortable with and the one you feel best about. Look up reviews, check out their websites (if they have one), and talk to them.
