Ablation Risks Higher at Teaching Hospital?

Posted By Toni on February 06, 1999 at 14:23:17:







Dear Drs.
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.
