"Patients should always do their research and choose their surgeon carefully. Make sure he or she is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and has the expertise and the experience to deliver a safe and satisfactory outcome."
DALLAS (PRWEB) November 27, 2018
Dallas plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has been recognized as one of the best plastic surgeons in Texas for 2018 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, has been designated as a Super Doctor for the 14th consecutive year. According to their website, the Super Doctor award is only granted to the top 5 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. A large portion of his practice consists of secondary 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 the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and has the expertise and the experience to deliver a safe and satisfactory outcome."
