In the July issue of Consumer Reports, they had an article called Heart Surgery Safety Guide. In that article, they rated hospitals based on such factors as survival and complications rates. The data was provided by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, the professional group that represents heart surgeon and it covered two of the most common type of heart surgeries including aortic valve replacement. The only hospital in NC that made the list with better than expected ratings was Moses Cone in Greensboro. The grades given were either: worse than expected, as expected and better than expected in two areas, coronary artery bypass surgery and aortic valve replacement surgery. I'm starting to look for a hospital and surgeon to replace my first aortic tissue valve. Has anyone here had heart surgery at Moses Cone? I'm not sure what to make of this.
