ROCKFORD — Four OrthoIllinois surgeons were selected as Castle Connolly Regional Top Doctors for 2020.
Hand surgery specialists Brian Bear, Brian Foster and Kenneth Korcek and orthopedic sports medicine specialist Scott Trenhaile were selected by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. after being nominated by peer physicians in an online nomination process. Honorees are then selected from the nominees by the Castle Connolly physician-led research team based on criteria including their medical education, training, hospital appointments and disciplinary histories. Only 4 to 5% of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor.
Bear, Foster and Korcek’s practices at OrthoIllinois are focused on elbow, hand, microvascular, traumatic and reconstructive surgery. Trenhaile’s practice is focused on the arthroscopic surgery of the knee and shoulder. Both Trenhaile and Bear perform shoulder replacement surgery.
Each of the selected surgeons are clinical associate professors of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Rockford, are actively involved in clinical research and have published numerous journal articles.
