DANVILLE, Pa. – Geisinger Vascular surgeons James Elmore, M.D., and Christopher DeMaioribus, M.D., were named to Newsweek and Statista’s America’s Best Vascular Surgeons list for 2024. The recognized physicians were announced on June 12. 

“Our vascular teams continue to deliver the highest quality of care every day, and these recognitions are a testament to our physicians who continue to make better health easier for our patients in central and northeastern Pennsylvania,” said Alfred S. Casale, M.D., chief medical officer Surgical Services and chair of the Geisinger Heart and Vascular Institute. 

The list was compiled using the following four data points:
Physician performance data from Medicare 
An online survey of medical experts
A quality-of-care score from peers of each surgeon
Consideration of their American Board of Surgery certifications

This is the first time Newsweek and Statista have recognized the top vascular surgeons.
