CHRIAS is very pleased to announce that for asecond year in a row, we have been awarded the Top Doc award for excellence in bariatric surgeries. We consider this award a reflection of our dedication to providing the most medically advanced bariatric procedures available. We would like to extend a warm congratulations to Dr. Irgau, Dr. Wynn, and Dr. Peters.
What is the Top Doc Award?
The Top Doc Award is an annual accolade that highlights doctors within a local region. The Top Doc Award is peer-determined, meaning doctors vote based on who they would most highly recommend to their patients for a treatment that falls outside their own specialty. Categories are broken down into specialties like Pediatrics, Bariatrics, or Neurological, to name a few. Christiana Institute of Advanced Surgery is proud to be acknowledged for their reputation in the medical community as being a trusted center where doctors can refer patients to for bariatric surgeries.
