iGUT Surgeons Named Among Top 1% of GI Surgeons Nationally

April 15, 2024

We are thrilled to announce that two of our distinguished surgeons, Nirav C. Thosani, MD, MHA, Atilla Ertan, MD, Endowed Chair in Gastroenterology and Professor in the Department of Surgery, along with Vaibhav Wadhwa, MD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery, have been recognized among the top 1% of GI surgeons nationally. This prestigious accolade highlights their exceptional expertise and commitment to gastrointestinal surgery. Their inclusion on this list distinguishes them as leading specialists within our community and across the country. It’s an honor to have such esteemed professionals on our Interventional Gastroenterology (iGUT) team, exemplifying our dedication to healthcare excellence.

This recognition places the iGUT Clinics prominently on the map, as only five GI surgeons from Houston were selected, and we are proud to have two representatives from our institution here at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston.

You can find more details about this significant achievement and view the complete list of recognized surgeons on the Avant-Garde website. Join us in congratulating Thosani and Wadhwa for their outstanding contributions to the field and their unwavering dedication to improving patient outcomes.
