Dr. Thut Named Leading Physician by New Hampshire Magazine

March 17, 2016

thutDr. David C. Thut of Seacoast Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has been named a 2016 Leading Physician by New Hampshire Magazine in the sports medicine category.

To select candidates for the Top Doctor and Leading Physician lists, New Hampshire Magazine sends a survey to all licensed physicians in the state of New Hampshire and asks which specialist they would be most likely to recommend to family and friends. Once biographical information has been meticulously fact-checked, NH Magazine publishes the list of specialists with the most votes.

“This recognition from my peers is a great honor,” states Dr. Thut. “My relationship with my patients, however, is what drives me each day. I feel blessed to have a practice where I get to treat all types of patients ranging from high level athletes, to weekend warriors, to those whose knee arthritis has made the simple act of walking a chore.” According to Dr. Thut, “The true reward of orthopedic surgery is helping patients return to the level of function they have lost.”

The complete list of NH Magazine’s Top Docs and Leading Physicians will be published in the April issue.
