Orthopedic Physicians Earn Top Doctor Distinction

Seven orthopedic surgeons from Fox Valley Orthopedics have earned the Castle Connolly Top Doctors distinction in an unprecedented number from one practice. This year’s doctors include Joshua Alpert, MD, Eric Bartel, MD, Vishal Mehta, MD, Jasper Petrucci, MD, Timothy Petsche, MD, James Sostak, MD, and Craig Torosian, MD.

Physicians nominated for the Top Doctors distinction must first go through a physician-led review process to determine if they meet Castle Connolly’s standards. This team then evaluates several criteria when selecting Top Doctors, including professional qualifications, education, hospital and facility appointments, research leadership, professional reputation and disciplinary history.

“It’s always an honor to be recognized as a leader in your field,” said Fox Valley Orthopedics’ CEO John Brady, “especially by peers who acknowledge your contribution to patient care. All of our doctors take a great deal of pride in exceeding patient expectations.”
