What are some tips for choosing a good surgeon?

If you need to undergo surgery, you are probably quite nervous as it is, but one thing that often calms the nerves is knowing you have a good surgeon. While there are many great surgeons in New York, you cannot afford to be careless with your health and safety. It helps to do your research first and know that when you go under the knife that you are in good hands.

AARP suggests doing thorough research on your surgeon to be sure that he or she has the skills and abilities to properly conduct the surgical procedure. Start by looking for any professional issues the surgeon may have had. You can do this by checking with the Federation of State Medical Boards. There is a fee to get disciplinary information, but it is rather small. You can then use the FSMB to do free checks for state licenses. You can further check disciplinary information with the state medical board. The medical board will also have surgical certification information on your surgeon.

After you have verified that your surgeon holds the proper licensing and certification and has not had any disciplinary issues, you can then start checking into reviews and getting others opinions. Talk to people you know who have used the surgeon. Discuss the surgeon with your primary care doctor. Look online for reviews.

Doing a complete check on your surgeon before your surgery can really help you to have a peace of mind about the procedure. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
