Medical society recognizes surgeon
Thomas Jordan, an orthopedic surgeon at Scranton Orthopaedic Specialists, was recently recognized by the Pennsylvania Medical Society as one of the top 42 physicians under the age of 40.
Dr. Jordan serves on the admissions committee at Georgetown University School of Medicine and also as a volunteer clinical faculty member at the Commonwealth Medical College. He has also published several journal articles, most recently on ACL reconstruction for active, under-50 individuals.
According to the Pennsylvania Medical Society, the 42 physicians named to this year's Physician 40 Under 40 have demonstrated a significant amount of success early in their medical careers.
Scott Shapiro, M.D., president of PAMED, said this new award is one of several ways his organization is recognizing the role Pennsylvania has in training physicians and encourage physicians to stay and practice here.
