“Seattle Magazine announced their 2020 Top Doctors in their April issue and I am pleased to share the extensive recognition of Department of Surgery (DOS) faculty.

DOS had 64 faculty listed in 11 specialties—this is more than 50% of our faculty, and accounted for over 40% of the magazine’s listed surgeons in all of the specialties. This represents a remarkable presence in this year’s Top Doctor listings. Top Doctors is one form of recognition by the community and shows they hold our surgeons in high esteem.

I shared this with the faculty. The faculty responded with appreciation for being named as a Top Doctor in the Seattle metropolitan area, but they were uniformly quick to point out that what they do is a team effort and they are one member of the team.

I congratulate these faculty and am honored to lead this exceptional Department of Surgery.
