Mendelson Kornblum Orthopedic & Spine Specialists Voted
Hour Magazine Top Docs in Orthopedics, Sports Medicine,
Pain Management and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
for Second Year in a Row

October 1, 2012 Hour Magazine’s annual issue of Detroit’s Top Docs named five physicians from Mendelson Kornblum Orthopedics as recipients of the peer-selected honor for 2012.

The three Mendelson brothers were each selected in the orthopedic and sports medicine categories, making it the second year in a row that Dr. David Mendelson, Dr. Jeffrey Mendelson, and Dr. Stephen Mendelson have received the Top Docs recognition.

Along with them, Dr. Giuseppe Paese and Dr. Anthony Oddo were voted as the best of the best in Pain Management and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation – which they both also received in 2011.

Dr. Martin Kornblum, Dr. Andres Munk, and Dr. Ferras Zeni from Mendelson Kornblum were not candidates for the award as Hour Detroit Top Docs does not include a category for their specialties, Spine & Neck or Foot & Ankle.

This is the 13th year that Hour Magazine has compiled a Top Docs list. All doctors in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, and Livingston Counties are eligible, and recipients can only be nominated by MDs and DOs. The winning doctors are then determined based on the number of votes from their fellow physicians. Information about the Top Docs honor can be found at

“I was thrilled when I found out that our physicians were named Top Docs for the second year in a row,” commented Mike Beaubien, CEO of Mendelson Kornblum Orthopedics. “To again earn the respect and votes of their peers, I think it shows that not only are they skilled surgeons, but also doctors that are dedicated to serving their healthcare community and continuing to provide the best care possible to patients.”

Mendelson Kornblum Orthopedics has grown from a single-physician practice that Dr. Herbert Mendelson established in 1963. Now, with 10 doctors, and a well-rounded team of physician assistants and physical therapists, Mendelson Kornblum offers advanced treatment options – including surgical and non-invasive technology – in traditional orthopedic care, joint replacement, spine and neck, sports medicine, foot and ankle, physical medicine and rehabilitation, pain management, and outpatient physical therapy.
