Congratulations to the Department of Surgery faculty recognized on the 2021 Castle Connolly Top Doctors® list.
Castle Connolly curates one of the most recognizable databases of physicians in the United States. The selection process is entirely merit-based; physicians do not pay to be listed on Castle Connolly. They are nominated by peers, and the Top Doctors selection is based on criteria such as professional qualifications, education, hospital and faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation and disciplinary history.
St. Louis Magazine narrows down Castle Connolly’s list to practicing doctors in the St. Louis area and features this group of physicians in their August issue every year. One out of every three Top Doctors in the St. Louis list is a Washington University Physician. In the 2021 edition, surgeons from each specialty in the Department of Surgery are represented.
