Tops in Their Field: “2016 Top Doctor” Specialists at Danbury Orthopedics
Danbury Orthopedics’ specialists have once again been recognized as leading surgeons in the field of orthopedics for 2016. Moffly Media’s magazines, Greenwich, Westport, Fairfield, New Canaan/Darien, and Stamford all published their Top Docs list in their January/February issues. The magazines partner with Castle Connolly – a nationwide survey organization that publishes a highly respected America’s Top Doctors® list based on peer review. In other words, doctors named to the Castle Connolly list are the specialists their own colleagues cite as tops in their field.
Danbury Orthopedics has multiple doctors named to this prestigious list. We are pleased and proud to announce that Dr. Michael Brand, Dr. Joseph DiGiovanni, Dr. Ross Henshaw and Dr. John Lunt have all received recognition on the 2016 Top Doctors list.
According to Castle Connolly’s stringent criteria, all Top Doctors are carefully processed for review based on their number of nominations, educational merits and training, current board certifications and other professional achievements.
