Travis Hanson M.D., Korsh Jafarnia M.D., Bruce Moseley M.D., Scott Rand M.D., Plinio Caldera M.D., Greg Seelhoefer M.D. and HoSun Hwang M.D. Among the Elite Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Specialists Featured in the Recently Released Super Doctors Issue

HOUSTON – The distinguished group of orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine physicians of Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are featured in the much anticipated Texas Super Doctors 2011-2012 issue of Texas Monthly magazine only recently released.

Determined through peer nominations and reviews, the list of selected Texas Super Doctors is carefully guarded until the coveted Texas Monthly magazine Super Doctors issue officially hits the newsstands.

The renowned orthopedic and sports medicine group, with sub specialties in hand and upper extremity, foot and ankle, shoulder, spine, total joint, and sports medicine was recognized for the strides made at the new Methodist Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine at Willowbrook as well as individual accomplishments.

MWBH Ortho Group Korsh Jafarnia, M.D. expanded the hand and upper extremity program at the advanced new facility to include a new Hand Center unlike anything currently available in northwest Houston - featuring specialized occupational therapy and the latest in hand, wrist and elbow treatment. Dr. Jafarnia also co-authored research findings published in 2011 - examining high-energy shockwave therapy in the treatment of Tennis Elbow.

Bruce Moseley, M.D. and Travis Hanson, M.D. kept professional and amateur athletes alike in the game - serving as part of the official healthcare team for organized sports throughout Houston.

Scott Rand, M.D. with the assistance of Greg Seelhoefer, M.D. succeeded in establishing an accredited Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship program - only one of two such programs in the greater Houston area. Rand is the PCSM Fellowship program director.

And together the physicians participated in educational Injury Reports on ESPN´s 97.5 NFL Sports Reports and public seminars on the Methodist Willowbrook campus.

With decades of combined experience, the physicians have served as team physicians for Rice University, U.S. Soccer, the Houston Rockets, the Houston Comets, the U.S. Men's and Women´s Olympic Basketball "Dream Teams" as well as dozens of area high school teams and organized sports clubs.

"We stay focused on providing our patients with the best treatments and rehabilitative therapies available in orthopedic medicine. Improving quality of life and returning individuals to the activities they love are the greatest accomplishments. We´re pleased to also be recognized by our colleagues in this effort," said Dr. Jafarnia.

According to Methodist Willowbrook Hospital CEO and Senior Vice President of The Methodist Hospital System Beryl Ramsey, the group is helping to prominently distinguish Methodist Willowbrook in northwest Houston.

"We carefully selected these physicians for their work in each of their areas of specialty and contributions to orthopedic and sports medicine. We´re very proud to have such a group on our campus and pleased to have Texas Monthly announce what we've long known," said Ramsey.
