The Woodlands, TX, August 4, 2017 - Sterling Ridge Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine (SROSM) is pleased to announce that two of our orthopedic surgeons have been recognized as Super Doctors® Rising Stars 2017.  N. Brian Flowers, MD, MPT, FAAOS, FAAHKS and Paul Chin, MD, PhD both received this honorable recognition for 2017. Dr. Flowers has received the Rising Stars recognition 3 years in a row in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Dr. Keith Johnson was also named a Super Doctor Rising Star in 2013.

Super Doctors® is a listing of physicians who are considered exceptional in their specialty. The selection process is a rigorous one, evaluating peer-nominated candidates on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Providers who make the list have excelled in their career and are both highly trusted and admired by their colleagues.

Rising Stars are chosen by the same process as Super Doctors®, however, Rising Stars highlights outstanding physicians who have been fully-licensed to practice in their field for approximately 10 years or less. These doctors have made noteworthy achievements early in their careers and are on the fast track through the ranks of their field.

While approximately 5 percent of the physicians within the respective state or region are named to Super Doctors®, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.

Congratulations to our physicians!
