Breast Reconstruction Surgeons Named to Prestigious Best Doctors In America® List

Drs. DellaCroce, Sullivan and Trahan among top 5% of doctors in America

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA— Frank DellaCroce, MD, FACS; Scott Sullivan, MD, FACS; and Christopher Trahan, MD, FACS of the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery and St. Charles Surgical Hospital, have been named to the list of Best Doctors in America® for 2013. Only five percent of physicians in America earn this prestigious honor, which is decided by the largest ongoing, peer-reviewed survey in the medical industry. Selections to the list are based on surveys of more than 53,000 medical experts in over 450 specialties and subspecialties worldwide; physicians cannot pay to be included on the list and they are not paid for their input. The only way to be recognized as one of the Best Doctors in America® is for a doctor to earn high marks for clinical ability from his or her peers. According to Best Doctors, Inc., doctors are asked questions which include, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?”

Best Doctors, Inc. evaluates the review results and verifies additional information to meet inclusion criteria. The experts that are part of the database provide the most advanced medical knowledge to patients with serious conditions. Drs. DellaCroce, Sullivan and Trahan are international leaders in all breast cancer reconstructive surgery options including state-of-the-art techniques, such as DIEP, Stacked DIEP, the Gluteal Hip Flap, and the revolutionary BODY LIFTSM Flap procedures that offer breast reconstruction without sacrifice of important functional muscles. Having performed more than 4000 breast reconstruction surgeries for women facing breast cancer, far more than any other physicians worldwide, they have pioneered many of the revolutionary procedures at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery including the ground-breaking immediate reconstruction option—the Nipple Sparing Mastectomy. “We are proud to be included on this list and we will continue to focus on providing women the final link in the circle of treatment, a return to wholeness, and an overall sense of recovery,” states Dr. Sullivan.
