Mpls. St. Paul Magazine’s 2018 Top Doctors: Rising Stars
Featured in April’s publication, the Mpls. St. Paul Magazine recognized 45 outstanding Hennepin Healthcare doctors across 19 different specialties for the fourth annual Rising Stars edition. From anesthesiologist to urologist, these rising stars are shaping the future of medicine to fit the needs of tomorrow. Doctors practicing for 10 years or less in their specialties were nominated by other physicians and scored on factors such as professional achievement and peer recognition. Selections were made following a blue-ribbon panel review. Altogether, 378 doctors in 40 specialties from across the Twin Cities were named as rising stars.
