2019 Charles S. Neer Award
Please help UCI's Department of Orthopaedic Surgery to congratulate Dr. Ranjan Gupta on being named the winner of the 2019 Charles S. Neer Award from the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons for recognition of his outstanding clinical investigations contributing to the understanding, care and prevention of injuries to the shoulder. Named after its benefactor Dr. Charles S. Neer, this prestigious award has been presented annually since the first Open Meeting of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons and is chosen after a rigorous selection process by members of both the Program Committee and Research Committee of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons. Recent awardees have been from the Hospital for Special Surgery, the Rothman Institute, UCLA, and the Cleveland Clinic.
A joint effort for replacement surgeries at UCI
Dr. Ranjan Gupta featured in the Orange County Register to discuss Joint Arthroplasty at UC Irvine.
The UCI program will integrate the surgeon, anesthesiologist and internal medicine doctor to develop what Gupta calls “defined pathways to help optimize outcomes.” A nurse “navigator” will be assigned to each patient to coordinate care for the surgery and 30 days of recovery.
“The program’s unique to our hospital in Orange County and is being monitored by other UC medical schools for possible inclusion in their programs,” Gupta said.
Doctor Ranjan Gupta at UC Irvine Orthopaedic Surgery have been named by Los Angeles Magazine as Southern California Super Doctors for 2012, 2013, & 2014. The award is given to the top 5% of physicians in their field, and selected and voted on by other physicians.
More than 31,000 doctors were asked to nominate one or more colleagues (excluding themselves) they would choose in seeking medical care. The Super Doctors research team investigated further and searched for exceptional doctors to complement the results. Candidates were evaluated on the indicators of peer recognition, professional status and disciplinary history.
Super Doctors can be found online at superdoctors.com where doctors can be searched by practice area and location.
