(PRWEB) August 12, 2015
Frank DellaCroce, MD, FACS; Alan Stolier, MD, FACS; Scott Sullivan, MD, FACS; and Christopher Trahan, MD, FACS, of the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery and St. Charles Surgical Hospital, have once again been named to the list of Best Doctors in America®, recognizing them as among the top 5% of surgeons in their field in the U.S. As the largest ongoing, peer-reviewed survey in the medical industry, selections to the list are based on surveys of more than 53,000 medical experts in over 450 specialties and subspecialties worldwide. Physicians cannot pay to be included on the list, nor are they paid for their input. The only way to be recognized as one of the Best Doctors in America® is for a doctor to earn high marks for clinical ability from his or her peers. According to Best Doctors, Inc., doctors are asked questions which include, “Who would you choose to treat a loved one’s complex medical condition?”
Best Doctors, Inc. evaluates the review results and verifies additional information to meet inclusion criteria. The experts that are part of the database provide the most advanced medical knowledge to patients with serious conditions, allowing patients to make medical decisions with confidence. Drs. DellaCroce, Sullivan and Trahan are international leaders in all breast cancer reconstructive surgery options including state-of-the-art techniques, such as DIEP, Stacked DIEP, the Hip Flap, and the revolutionary APEX and Body Flapsm procedures that recreate and rebuild a living breast for patients facing mastectomy. Having performed more than 5000 breast reconstruction surgeries for women from around the world, they have pioneered many revolutionary procedures that are changing the way breast cancer is treated and giving women results that preserve beauty and strength. Their recently published advancement in Nipple Sparing Mastectomy is a paradigm shift in the quality of reconstructive outcomes. “We are proud to be included on this list, among the best doctors in the nation,” states Dr. Sullivan. “Being recognized by your peers is a humbling experience and one that tell us we are achieving our goal of delivering the highest quality care possible.”
