I recently read a book called walk on water, that brought up an interesting point that I wanted to make known, because it could affect anyone of us if we have kids. In this book the writer spends sometime at a clinic and heart hospital in cleveland watching pediatric heart surgery's and learning about them from arguably one of the best pediatric heart surgeons in the world, Roger Mee. He talks about in the book the lack of consitant results among hospitals in pediatric heart surgery and wonders how this can be accepted... this is a very interesting point. I urge all of you if you are ever in the need of a pediatric heart surgeon to look carefully at their results for the surgery in question.. Don't just go to a surgeon because they are the one that is recommended but actually do your own research. When you meet with the surgeon ask if the numbers they are quoting you are their numbers or overall numbers... this makes a difference. I don 't mean to sound cynacial or anything but to me this book was really eye opening, When I needed my open heart surgery done, my parents went to the clinic reccomended, they went with the surgeon that was reccommeneded and that was that. They didn't think about doing further research or anything like that... I got lucky my surgeon was one of the best in the field at the time, but others may not be so lucky. I just want everyone to open their eyes up to this. Congential Heart deffects are the number one birth defects in america, they aren't going away and so things like this are vitally important. Get the book read it! I would be more than happy to discuss it with anyone who wants to!
