2014 list of top medical experts in Fairfield County compiled by Castle Connolly
Moffly Media in association with Castle Connolly, America’s trusted source for identifying Top Doctors, has named four doctors from Coastal Orthopaedics to its list of top physicians in Fairfield County for their 2014 Annual Top Doctors List. The list published in the January/February issues of Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan/Darien and Westport Magazines bases its selection process on the foundation of peer nominations where physicians can nominate other doctors whom they feel are the most outstanding in their medical specialties.
This year’s list includes Dr. Jeffrey V. Deluca, Arthroscopic Surgery, Knee Replacement; Dr. Michael M. Lynch, Arthroscopic Surgery, Sports Medicine & Knee Replacement; Dr. Nicholas V. Polifroni, Sports Medicine, Joint Replacement; and Dr. Peter B. Stovell, Joint Replacement and Sports Medicine. All four are members of the Coastal Orthopaedics team based in Norwalk with offices also in Darien, Westport and New Canaan. The Castle Connolly physician-led research team carefully reviews the credentials of every physician being considered for inclusion in the Moffly Media Top Doctors List. The review includes, among other factors, scrutiny of medical education, training, board certifications, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements and malpractice and disciplinary history.
After this careful review of credentials, nominated physicians are chosen to be listed as a regionally outstanding Castle Connolly Top Doctor. Regional Top Doctors are highly sought after physician leaders in their communities and metropolitan areas.
“We are proud to have these skilled physicians from Coastal Orthopaedics named to this year’s Top Doctors list,” said Dr. T. Jay Kleeman. “There is no greater recommendation than to ask other physicians whom they would send a loved one to for medical care. These men have been selected for their superior experience and credentials.”
Coastal Orthopaedics is one of the largest and oldest orthopaedic practices in Fairfield County. Their 12 physicians are board certified with fellowship training at the finest medical schools and hospitals in the country. Their team provides patient-focused care in the full spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries including pediatrics, hand & upper extremity, foot & ankle, sports medicine, physical medicine, spine, joint replacement and occupational hand therapy.
