Texas Medical Center's Premier Hand and Upper Extremity Surgeon, Dr. Evan D. Collins Receives Recognition From One of the Most Prestigious Professional Ranking Reports

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2011) - Dr. Evan D. Collins, long recognized as a Texas Medical Center top physician in local peer and patient nominated listings, is now among the exclusive U.S. News & World Report Top Doctors' listing.

While Collins has for years received recognition for his research and contribution to advances in the treatment of degenerative hand, wrist and elbow conditions, he was recently named among the top doctors identified by U.S. News & World Report for his performance and national ranking in his area of specialty.

The U.S. News & World Report in partnership with Castle Connolly identified Collins among an elite group of orthopedic physicians who ranks nationally in 11 specialties and "high" in two. This recognition follows that of Newsweek Top Physicians, Best Doctors in America, Texas Super Doctors, H Texas Top Doctors and Health & Fitness Phenomenal Physicians -- all of which he has received to make Collins one of the most recognized hand and upper extremity specialists in Texas.

Collins holds a faculty appointment at Weill Cornell Medical College and the Methodist Center for Orthopaedic Surgery at the Texas Medical Center -- where he is also the hand and upper extremity specialist and part of the Methodist healthcare team serving the Houston Symphony and professional sports teams throughout Texas.

A published author, Dr. Collins' latest research examining the involvement of the sigmoid notch in distal radius fractures will soon appear in Orthopedic Reviews. And his ongoing research will help determine the most effective implants in basilar joint (thumb) arthritis.

"I'm happy to receive such recognition from U.S. News & World Report," said Dr. Collins. "I stay focused on patient care and improving lifelong functionality and am pleased that this kind of work is recognized as valuable by these organizations," he added.

Collins specializes in degenerative joint conditions, common tendinopathic and debilitating hand and wrist conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren's disease and deQuervain's Tendonitis.

Formerly the Chief of Hand & Upper Extremity at Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Collins has some of the highest nationally recorded patient satisfaction scores at the Methodist Center for Orthopaedic Surgery.
