Top Cardiothoracic Surgeons
Hi,

Does anybody know if there is a top 10 or top 100 listing of the best cardiothoracic surgeons in the U.S. or the world?

If so, do you know where I can find it?

Cheers,

Going by www.usnews.com/besthospitals  The Cleveland Clinic, the very site you are posting on is listed as the #1 Hospital for Cardiac Surgery (2006).  A hospital who is listed as #1 should have the BEST Cardiac Surgeons on staff or it would not be named #1.

Well, call me cynical, but anyone who writes a book about cardiac surgery, probably already knows where the best surgeons are, and just wanted to *mention* their book. Frankly.

HEY ADAM..

YOU COME ON THIS SITE ASKING FOR THE 10 TOP CARDIACTHORACIC SURGEONS.  WHAT'S THE MATTER THE CARDIAC SURGEON POSTED ON YOUR WEBSITE(SEE BELOW) WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU?

Mr. Pick learned that he would need heart valve replacement surgery on November 3, 2005. Eight weeks later, Dr. Vaughn Starnes performed aortic and pulmonary valve replacements (the Ross Procedure) on Mr. Pick at the University of Southern California Medical Center.

Slick way trying to push for your book since "advertising" is not allowed on this site.

Professor Stephen Westaby is currently considered the top cardiothoracic surgeon in the world. He is head of the Oxford Heart Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, England.

He won the Ray C. Fish award from the Texas Heart Institute a few years ago and recently performed a world first by combining artificial heart and stem cell surgery on a dying patient.
