Atlanta Sports Medicine Doctor Spero Karas Wins 'Atlanta's Top Doctors' Honor Again
Date:7/23/2009

Atlanta Magazine has named Dr. Spero G. Karas among the top Orthopedic Surgeons in the greater Atlanta metro area for the second consecutive time. Dr. Karas was recognized by his peers and key medical leaders for being a 'highly skilled, exceptional,' and 'most-trusted' sports medicine specialist.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 23, 2009 -- Spero G. Karas M.D. has again been profiled in Atlanta Magazine's Top Doctors issue within the Orthopedic Surgery category. One of only five Orthopedic Surgeons listed in the July 2009 exclusive, Dr. Karas retains this distinction from the magazine's previous Top Doctors list compiled in July 2007.

Atlanta Magazine compiles its biennial list of "Atlanta's most trusted physicians" based on the results of the highly-regarded Castle Connolly Top Doctors survey. Castle Connolly's physician-led research team follows a rigorous screening process in which board-certified physicians and medical leaders identify particular doctors they feel best embody the ideal of excellence in patient care.

In essence, Dr. Karas and others selected for the Top Doctors list represent those to whom the nominating physicians would send their own families. It is important to note that doctors do not and cannot pay to be profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors. Selections are entirely peer-based and randomly sampled. Hence, the results of the vigorous screening process truly identify the most respected doctors in America, subdivided by fields of practice and geographical region.

Dr. Karas was specifically cited for his special expertise in elbow reconstruction, knee reconstruction, shoulder reconstruction, and sports medicine in the Atlanta metro area.

In addition to having been distinguished twice by Atlanta Magazine for being the city's "Most Trusted Sports Medicine Specialist," Dr. Karas was recently included in Castle Connolly's "Best Orthopedic Surgeons in America" list. He was featured last year in Women's Health Magazine's "America's Top Doctors for Women" and Men's Health Magazine's "Top Sports Medicine Specialists."

Dr. Karas specializes in providing comprehensive care to people of all ages with shoulder pain, knee pain, and upper extremity conditions related to traumatic, degenerative, sports and work-related injuries.

As Director of Emory University's Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship Program, Dr. Karas is a recognized expert in the field of shoulder surgery, knee surgery, arthroscopy, and sports medicine. He has been inducted into the prestigious American Shoulder and Elbow Society, one of only five other physician members in the state of Georgia. In addition to Dr. Karas' role as director of Emory Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, he currently serves as a consulting team physician for Georgia Tech University, Emory University Athletics, and Lakeside High School.
