Spine Team Texas Founder Receives National Spine Leadership Award

Dr. David Rothbart achieves two-time designation

Becker’s Healthcare is known as the leading source of cutting-edge business and legal information for healthcare industry leaders. It’s no wonder its publication, Becker’s Spine Review, is regarded as the trusted source for news and analysis on business and legal issues relating to spine practices. The quarterly publication reaches approximately 12,500 key spine practice
decision-makers including surgeons and spine practice administrators. So when Becker’s Spine Review announces its annual list of Spine Surgeon Leadership Awards, the medical community takes note.

It is with great pride that we find Spine Team Texas founder, Dr. David Rothbart, once again listed as one of the top 20 spine leaders in the nation. “To make the list once is an honor,” said Mark Hood, CEO of Spine Team Texas. “But to attain this designation again speaks to the consistent level of care presented by Dr. Rothbart to patients at our practice. Not only is he providing notable spine care to patients, but he’s setting the standard for physicians and colleagues within the spine industry.”
Becker’s Healthcare annually recognizes spine surgeons for their leadership, experience and entrepreneurship in the field. Dr. Rothbart also received this designation in 2013, the inaugural year for the awards.
