Six faculty members listed on 2018 Top Doctors list

We are very proud to announce that six of our faculty members are listed on the Mpls.St.Paul Magazine 2018 Top Doctors list. They are (pictured at right in alphabetical order, from left to right):

Clark Chen, MD, PhD, Professor, Lyle French Chair in Neurosurgery and Department Head
Daniel Guillaume, MD, MS, Associate Professor and Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital
Stephen Haines, MD, Professor
Matthew Hunt, MD, Associate Professor, Resident Program Director
Uzma Samadani, MD, PhD, Associate Professor
Ramachandra Tummala, MD, Associate Professor.
The annual Top Doctors list is generated by physician peers from throughout the Twin Cities area. The rankings are determined by a survey sent to 5,000 licensed physicians in the 10-county metro area. Survey participants are asked to nominate one or more doctors, excluding themselves. The candidates who made the final list were evaluated on indicators of peer recognition, professional achievement, and disciplinary history. In addition, a blue-ribbon panel of physicians also reviewed each Top Doctors candidate. The magazine also conducted reputation-based research.

More than 150 University of Minnesota Health physicians were similarly recognized. Read more.

Congratulations to our faculty members whose peers nominated them as a Top Doctor!
