I am currently looking for a good cardio-thoracic surgeon.
I have to have a percardiectomy (full removal of the percardium around the heart)
I am based in Australia, but am willing to travel if the price is right.
I have found some good surgeons in the USA willing to do the procedure but they are VERY expensive and its a long way to travel after the surgery.
The procedure is a bit tricky, so surgeons in this area of expertise a bit hard to come by.
If anyone has any leads for a good cardio thoracic surgeon please could they reply to this thread, so I can contact them and see if they do this procedure?
It doent matter where in the world they are, any lead is a good lead at the moment.
Many thanks :-)

I do not have any one physician to recommend but Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN may be a good resource for you. Here is the link for you:

Good luck in your quest and do keep talking to us.
