Dr. Hooman Melamed Inducted Into the Super Doctors Hall of Fame

There are many doctors who dedicate their lives to the well-being of others, but few have achieved the level of recognition Hooman Melamed, MD, FAAOS, has earned for his outstanding contributions to spine health and treatment. For ten consecutive years, Dr. Melamed has been nominated as a Super Doctor – an accolade that speaks volumes about his skillset and expertise. This feat has now earned him the coveted Hall of Fame award, cementing his place in the medical community as one of the best specialists in his field.

How are Super Doctors Chosen?

The Super Doctor award is a prestigious accolade reserved for healthcare providers with a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Only about 5% of doctors within a respective state or region will be selected for the award. In order to receive the honor, a multi-step selection process is conducted. It involves:

Survey of Doctors

A pool of candidates is created by inviting doctors to nominate colleagues that are exceptional in their field. They are encouraged to consider which doctor they would choose if they needed medical care in a particular specialty. Doctors cannot be self-nominated, and several precautions are taken to prevent ballot manipulation.

Candidate Search

The Super Doctor research staff also contributes to the candidate pool by searching online sources, databases, and publications. This allows highly specialized and less visible doctors to be included in the selection process.


Each candidate is then evaluated based on professional achievement and peer recognition. There are ten indicators that are assessed, including:

  • Years of experience
  • Hospital appointments
  • Fellowships
  • Professional activities
  • Leadership positions
  • Academic achievements
  • Board certification
  • Honors and awards
  • Lectures and publications
  • Any other outstanding achievements

Blue Ribbon Panel Review

Once selected, nominees are grouped by specialty and reviewed by the Super Doctor blue ribbon panel. After completing the process, the total points received from nominations, research, and the blue ribbon panel review will be added up, and only the top doctors will receive the honor. Before publishing the list, each doctor and their disciplinary record will be reviewed and verified.
