I was watching embarrassing bodies a couple of days ago and i keep hearing things like "top surgeon" "one of the best in the uk"
I mean, how can you measure it?
Number of academic articles published?
and general measure of outcomes
The main problem though is that you can't always compare your results against other people because
(1) there may not alway be other people doing what you do
(2) the type of patients you deal with may not be the same as that of other surgeons (eg your patients have severe comorbidities etc)
(3) you don't have many patients of each type to have proper stats.
