Ditto twofold. New stuff comes along all the time and frankly this is what I'd want:
I want a doctor who does THIS SPECIFIC procedure multiple times a day, not a once-a-month guy. Technically the infrequent doc may know his stuff however I'd want someone who does it all the time.
Short story: Son had multiple surgeries trying to fix his eyes. The initial doc did great work but it wasn't enough. He told me he knew how to do the next surgery however we needed an expert who does that particular procedure all the time. So he sent us to a colleague. She did that one operation.
I'd advise the same for you. It's not enough to know how. Experience is critical in delicate operations.

I feel for you with the heart issues. I lost my boy to a heart attack to worry about that sort of thing. You are in my prayers.
And you've got your Joy plus William. A man cannot ask for much more. I love William. She's a fine boat.
Escape the white coats and get home fast. Here's to a speedy recovery and wishing for you to have your miracle....
