For the 19th consecutive year, Dallas plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist Dr. Rod J. Rohrich has been selected as a Texas Monthly SuperDoctor.
DALLAS, Jan. 30, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dallas plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has been recognized as one of the best plastic surgeons in Texas for 2023 by Texas Monthly's annual list of outstanding physicians.
The Super Doctor award is granted to exceptional physicians based on nominations by colleagues practicing in their specialty and within their region. The highest rated nominees are then reviewed by a panel of peers based on 10 areas of professional excellence and achievements. These include years of experience, professional honors, board certifications, academic accomplishments, and teaching roles. Candidates are also rated on their involvement in scientific publications, medical research, participation in lectures, and other professional activities.
Based on his extensive ongoing work in these areas, Dr. Rohrich, whose clinical practice focuses on aesthetic plastic surgery such as rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, and facelift surgery, has been designated as a Super Doctor for the 19th consecutive year. According to their website, the Super Doctor award is only granted to approximately the top five percent of regional medical specialists.
"Rigorous awards such as Super Doctors can be a valuable resource for patients who are evaluating their options," says Dr. Rohrich. "Surgeon selection is the single most influential factor for ensuring a successful outcome in plastic surgery."
Dr. Rohrich is a longstanding advocate for patient safety and his innovative approach to maximizing both consistency and excellence in both primary and revision rhinoplasty. A significant part of his practice consists of secondary or revision rhinoplasty surgeries, often for patients who have had poor results from their primary surgeries. Over half of his rhinoplasty patients in Dallas, for example, come to him seeking revision rhinoplasty - corrective surgery from a previous rhinoplasty which had an unsatisfactory outcome.
"The single most important factor in all of plastic surgery is who you select as your surgeon," says Dr. Rohrich. "Patients should always do their research and choose their surgeon carefully. Make sure he or she is board certified by a specialty of the American Board of Medical Specialties, and has the expertise and the experience to deliver a safe and satisfactory outcome." He emphasized the 3 Es for finding the best plastic surgery expert - Experience, Expertise and the ability to deliver consistently Excellent results.
