Chicago Neurosurgeon, in Castle Connolly Top Doctor Database, Being Considered for U.S. Surgeon General

Barack Obama is considering Gail Rosseau, MD to join his cabinet as the next U.S. Surgeon General.

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 11, 2008 -- According to a December 9, 2008 article in the Chicago Tribune, President-elect Barak Obama is strongly considering prominent Chicago neurosurgeon, Gail Rosseau, MD, chief of surgery at the Neurologic and Orthopedic Hospital of Chicago - and a Castle Connolly Top Doctor - to be the next U.S. Surgeon General. One of only 300 female neurosurgeons nationwide, and an assistant professor of neurosurgery at Rush University Medical Center/Rush Medical College, Dr. Rosseau has published and been quoted widely not only in the area of neurosurgery, but also on women's health issues, ways to increase the number of women in medicine, and broad issues related to projected shortages in certain medical specialties. She is both an MD and a Registered Nurse.

Reactions at the national and local levels within the medical profession appear to be enthusiastically supportive of the role Dr. Rosseau can play in this high-profile position, which can have significant impact on the major health issues affecting Americans, such as obesity and smoking. "Dr. Rosseau certainly is reflective of the many thousands of Castle Connolly Top Doctors all across the nation who represent the very best in American medicine," said John. J. Connolly, Ed.D., Castle Connolly's President and Chief Executive Officer, and Publisher of its acclaimed national guide, America's Top Doctors(R).
