GREENWICH, Conn. -- From foot and ankle injuries to spine and neck pain, residents seeking the area's premier doctors needn't go far.

15 orthopedic and neurosurgical specialists from ONS were named among Fairfield County’s top doctors for 2018, according to Moffly Media. Moffly recently published an annual survey compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a national medical data research group. As a practice, ONS had more physicians named as top doctors in their categories than any other practice in the region.

“ONS was founded 20 years ago to bring the best and brightest orthopedists and spine specialists in the country to our neighbors in Fairfield and Westchester," said Dr. Seth. Miller, ONS president. "We are honored to be recognized by our peers in the community.”

These "Top Doctors" are nominated by their peers for talent and expertise in their medical specialties. Credentials of each nominee are reviewed by the Castle Connolly physician-directed research team, with special scrutiny given to medical education, training, board certification, hospital appointments, administrative posts and professional achievements.

In the field of Orthopedic Surgery, the following ONS physicians were recognized as the premier specialists in the region:

Dr. Michael Clain, foot and ankle orthopedic surgeon; Dr. James Cunningham, a sports medicine physician specializing in knee and shoulder; Dr. Frank Ennis, hip and knee replacement surgeon, Dr. Steven Hindman, general orthopedics and trauma; Dr. Brian Kavanagh, hip and knee replacement surgeon; Dr. Seth Miller, shoulder specialist; Dr. David Nocek, general orthopedics and trauma; Dr. Paul Sethi, a sports medicine physician specializing in shoulder, elbow, knee and shoulder replacement; Dr. Katherine B. Vadasdi, director of the ONS Women’s Sports Medicine Center specializing in shoulder, elbow, knee and shoulder replacement and Dr. Mark Vitale was recognized as a top hand surgeon.

The entire ONS Spine Center team was recognized as the best in their area of specialty. Neurosurgeons Dr. Paul Apostolides, Dr. Mark Camel, Dr. Amory Fiore, and Dr. Scott Simon were honored for their outstanding skill and high quality patient care. Physiatrist Dr. Jeffrey Heftler, a specialist in interventional pain management at the ONS Interventional Sports and Spine Center, was named to the list as well.
