Dr. Denton Watumull Named “Texas Super Doctor” in 2018
Texas Monthly magazine has recently announced this year’s list of Super Doctors®! The 2018 list includes one of Regional Plastic Surgery Center’s top plastic surgeons—Denton Watumull, MD. While this is not the first time Dr. Watumull has been voted one of the best plastic surgeons in Texas by his peers, he is always grateful to be honored by the Super Doctors® team. 2018 marks the eleventh year Dr. Watumull has been recognized in Texas Monthly as a Super Doctor within the “Plastic Surgery” specialty category.
Texas Super Doctors® are chosen according to their performance in three areas: peer nominations/evaluations, professional achievements, and disciplinary history review. The rigorous, multi-step process begins with the Super Doctors® team identifying a pool of candidates through a survey of doctors and a research mission which helps identify highly specialized or less visible doctors who are worthy of being included. The team then evaluates each candidate in the following ten areas:
- Board certifications
- Years of experience
- Publications, lectures, & presentations
- Honors & awards
- Academic achievements & positions
- Leadership positions
- Hospital appointments
- Professional activities
- Other outstanding achievements
A “Blue Ribbon Panel” made up of top performers in each medical subspecialty then review the candidates with the highest scores in the evaluation phase (who are grouped within their same area of specialty)—meaning Dr. Watumull was reviewed and recommended for recognition by a panel of Texas’ finest plastic surgeons. The top 5% of performers in Texas (in each specialty category) are then added to the Super Doctors® list during the “Final Selection” process.
Dr. Watumull respects the Super Doctors® research process and all of the doctors who took the time to participate in 2018. He also extends heartfelt congratulations to the other physicians and surgeons who were awarded Super Doctors® status along with him.
