Kernan Doctors Make Baltimore Magazine's 2010 "Top Doctors" List

Baltimore Magazine

Baltimore, MD (November 5, 2010) - Kernan Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Hospital in Woodlawn, the largest provider of rehabilitation care in Maryland, is pleased to announce that six of its doctors have been selected by their peers as Top Docs in Baltimore Magazine.

Kernan Hospital is one of 12 hospitals within the University of Maryland Medical System.

The Top Doctors List results are based on a Baltimore Magazine survey of more than 5,500 randomly selected physicians in the Baltimore area, including Baltimore City and the surrounding five counties, asking where they would send a member of their family in each of 86 specialties.

The six doctors, listed by specialty, are:

Alternative/Complementary Medicine

  • Brian Berman, M.D.
  • Lixing Lao, Ph.D.

Orthopaedics, Hand

  • W. Andrew Eglseder, M.D.

Pediatrics, Orthopaedics

  • Andrew Abramowitz, M.D.

Physical Medicine/Rehabilitation

  • Peter Gorman, M.D.

Plastic Reconstructive Surgery

  • Ronald Silverman, M.D.

"We are proud of all of our physicians who work tirelessly to provide the highest quality of care to their patients," said Michael Jablonover, M.D., MBA, FACP and CEO of Kernan. "To have so many of our physicians acknowledged by their peers is recognition of the patient care they provide."
