I don't think anyone keeps viewable records on success rates of particular surgeons, except for the surgeon. We went on word-of-mouth recommendation. There are websites where you can look to see if anyone has left ratings or comments about doctors if you do a search for physician ratings. http://www.healthgrades.com/ and http://www.vitals.com/ are two examples.
Depending on what state you're in, The Department of Health may have a way for you to view the physician's license status and profile online. It looks like you're in Florida where I am. Here in Florida, that provides additional details about education and residency, how long they have been practicing, as well as a few other items. http://ww2.doh.state.fl.us/IRM00profiling/searchform.ASP
Through the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, there's also a searchable database of prior settlements for malpractice claims. https://apps.fldfs.com/PLCR/Search/MPLClaim.aspx
