    You can't.   Bad surgeons are fired or not hired.   The odds of getting a poor surgeon is incredibly low...in the US.

    Are you trying to find a lucky doctor?  Doctors who generally perform high risk procedures would in turn have a lower patient survival rate but all in all they can all be successful procedures...just not all patients live.  If you are thinking of doctors with the highest patient survival rate...they can not promise you’ll live
