Paul Modi’s results show he has a higher survival rate than expected by national standards.
It is vital that patients undergoing heart surgery feel confident in the abilities of their surgeon. The former Healthcare Commission, the independent watchdog of healthcare in England up to March 2009, joined forces with the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery in Great Britain and Ireland and launched a website containing information about the rates of survival for patients who have had certain types of heart surgery at different UK hospitals.
Mr Modi has edited four textbooks, one of them on keyhole and minimally invasive cardiac surgery, and he has published over 35 manuscripts in peer-reviewed surgical journals and written 3 book chapters, as well as guidelines for the British Heart Foundation.
He has published extensively on the benefits of minimally invasive cardiac surgery and a selection of some of his work. Mr Modi teaches surgical skills and basic sciences at the Royal College of Surgeons of England and trains other consultants on best teaching practices.
