I am considering having RF Ablation for SVT performed by Dr. Lesh at UCSF. I have complete confidence in Dr. Lesh, but the fact that UCSF is a teaching hospital makes me a bit nervous. The Dr. is assisted by Fellows who are studying electrophysiology or who may have even completed EP studies. Are the risks greater at a teaching hospital such as UCSF than at a private hospital? I understand UCSF pioneered this procedure and that Dr. Lesh has an outstanding reputation. Thank you.
