Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. Honors Top Physicians at
Sixth Annual National Physician of the Year Awards

The sixth annual Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. National Physician of the Year Awards took place on Monday evening, March 28, 2011 at the Hudson Theatre at the Millennium Broadway Hotel in New York City.  The Awards recognize and honor five exemplary physicians, as well as the many thousands of other excellent physicians practicing in communities throughout the United States. The evening began at 6:00PM with the awards presentation followed by a cocktail buffet. 

Several awards were given to those who work tirelessly in their respective field of medicine.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is awarded to physicians for their lifetime of dedication to research and practice in their respective fields.  This year, the award was presented to:

·         George P. Canellos, M.D., Senior Physician, Department of Medical Oncology – Dana Farber Cancer Institute and William Rosenberg Professor of Medicine – Harvard Medical School.  Dr.  Canellos has been a leading contributor to the treatment of advanced Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, integrating antibody therapy with cytotoxic agents.

·         Matthew D. Davis, M.D., Professor Emeritus, Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences – University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.  Dr. Davis helped develop the photographing of the fundus, the back of the eye for diagnostic study. He then led NIH research in the use of lasers and photocoagulation for treatment of diabetic retinopathy, saving the eyesight of millions of diabetics.

The Clinical Excellence Award, recognizing physicians who exemplify excellence in clinical medical practice, was presented to:

·         Armando E. Giuliano, M.D., FACS, FRCSED, Director, Chief of Science and Medicine – John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John’s Health Center.  Dr. Giuliano worked on the development of sentinel node biopsy for breast cancer, which allows surgeons to test for the spread of a malignancy in a breast cancer patient.

·         David W. Kennedy, M.D., FACS, Professor of Otorhinolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery – University of Pennsylvania.  Dr.  Kennedy’s introduction of endoscopic sinus surgery revolutionized the field by taking a difficult operation and turning it into a routine procedure that produces far better outcomes for the hundreds of thousands of patients who undergo the procedure every year. 

·         O. Wayne Isom, M.D., Professor and Chairman, Terry Allen Kramer Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery – New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical Center.   Dr. Isom has been instrumental in developing bloodless cardiac surgery and is well known for his several celebrity patients including Larry King and David Letterman.

The National Health Leadership Award is awarded to a non-physician whose tireless work with an organization has heightened the awareness for the need of support and research for that specific cause.  Mrs. Evelyn H. Lauder, Senior Corporate Vice President of The Estee Lauder Companies Inc. and Founder and Chairman of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, received this year’s National Health Leadership Award.  Mrs. Lauder has radically raised the awareness of breast cancer, treatment and the need for regular and early examinations throughout the world.  She has also helped establish the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.  

John K. Castle, Chairman, and John J. Connolly, Ed.D., President and CEO, of Castle Connolly Medical LtdWilliam Liss-Levinson, Ph.D., Vice President, Chief Strategy & Operations Officer, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. and Jean Morgan, M.D., Vice President, Chief Medical & Research Officer, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. were among the Awards Presenters for the evening.  Robin Elliott, Executive Director of the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, was the Master of Ceremonies.
