academic medical centers can be a double edged sword... while you have the famous doctors, they are often famous for research, not necessarily for being the best at cutting and sewing

at a teaching program, the attendings often dont do the surgeries themselves, although I am sure in Pekkas case they did.. and thats the rub... do you want a guy who has supervised 100 procedures in the last year but has only personally done a few, or do you want a guy who does dozens every year but does them all himself??
