Congrats on the 0 Mom48.
Yeah, it's amazing how well these top notch guys ( Samadi, Patel, Tehwari, Menon ) do. The good thing is that as the years pass, more and more surgeons will reach this volume. There is no doubt in my mind that if possible you want someone who has performed thousands. The more they do the more experience and skill they generate. That much is not always obvious to the newly diagnosed who has chosen surgery but becomes more so with a little time and good advice from family, friends and other medical specialists. I'd say that the same logic is true regardless of treatment chosen.
The guy my sister spoke to studied with Patel and he reiterated the same thing to her. This was very honest of him as he was starting his career and will soon be a surgeon with very few surgeries under his belt.
I hope to stay in the zero club alongside your husband for years to come.
