I am going to need surgery soon. The problem, medically is very common, but it will most likely require three days or so in the hospital from what I understand. It is a major surgery. According to what I have found out, the surgery (which may need redone again at some point) is only as "good" as the surgeon who is doing it. (Seems like common sense, but what I mean is, that I can go longer between surgeries if I have a better dr.) I have found a great doc. which I am supposed to see in two weeks, but his hospital, which is world renowned, is two hours away. We have several local hospitals that are good too, but no dr.s who have been recommended to me. I have a DH and two kids between 10 and 15, so traveling for them for those few days might be an issue. And I will want people around me. Which would you pick? Better dr, but far, or closer to home and unknown?Answer Question

I'd go with the best doctor even if it means travelling. Your husband could get a hotel room for a few days if necessary, and the kids could either come too or they could stay with friends or relatives. GL!
