NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA (PRWEB) August 02, 2017
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 been named to the list of Best Doctors in America® for 2017. The surgeons have been continually recognized among the top 5% of physicians 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, Stolier, Sullivan and Trahan are international leaders in reconstructive surgical options for women with breast cancer, pioneering groundbreaking procedures including Nipple Sparing Mastectomy, the APEX Flapcm, the Stacked Flapsm, the SGAP, and the Body Lift Flap® procedures that offer breast reconstruction without sacrifice of important functional muscles, as well as the revolutionary 4D Nipplesm reconstruction. They have performed over 10,000 breast reconstruction procedures for women facing breast cancer, seeking BRCA risk reduction, or searching for solutions to existing breast deformities.
“We are honored that our peers have once again chosen us for inclusion on this prestigious list,” states Dr. Trahan. “It certainly is a testament to our mission to serve as a dedicated center of excellence for women seeking the most advanced methods of breast reconstruction.”
