It is wonderful news to hear that I am nominated again this year to the SuperDoctors® list.

Melvin H. Nutig M.D., a Beverly Hills orthopedic surgeon, has been nominated as one of Southern California’s SuperDoctors® for the second year in a row. The SuperDoctors® designation represents an honor made all the more meaningful as it signifies the reputation among and opinions of other highly qualified surgeons, doctors, and medical professionals.

To be a SuperDoctors® nominee is an honor very few physicians receive. This year Dr. Nutig may join the list of colleagues who are recognized as a leader within their field – an honor that comes based on commendations by his work in the medical and surgical community.

“It is wonderful news to hear that I am nominated again this year to the SuperDoctors® list,” says Dr. Nutig. “If I am selected this year it will signify that my colleagues believe I am doing something right when it comes to impacting the lives of my patients and contributing to the medical community.”

The SuperDoctors® selection process involves a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. To become a nominee, a research staff selects candidates based on what is deemed “Star Search Credentials” and include: years of experience, hospital appointments, fellowships, professional activities, leadership positions, board certifications, publications/lectures, honors and awards as well as other outstanding achievements.

For the second consecutive year, Dr. Nutig has been nominated for this honor based on his credentials, honors and professional achievements.
