Del Mar resident earns honor

Dr. Heinz Hoenecke of Scripps Clinic has been selected as the only San Diego orthopedic surgeon — and one of just six in California — to be honored on a national medical journal’s annual list of the top shoulder surgeons and specialists in the United States.

Heinz Hoenecke

Becker’s Orthopedic, Spine & Pain Management Review will publish its third annual list of “65 Outstanding Shoulder Surgeons & Specialists” in its September 2011 print edition. Dr. Hoenecke, of Del Mar, who also serves as head team physician for the San Diego Padres, is joined on this year’s list by other noted sports medicine physicians across the United States, such as Dr. James Andrews, Dr. Lewis Yocum and Dr. Frank Jobe.

Physicians recognized on the list were selected by the journal’s editorial team, based on their expertise in shoulder surgery, research and development accomplishments and leadership in professional organizations. In addition to his current role with the Padres, Dr. Hoenecke has been a team physician for the United States’ national basketball, soccer and ski teams, the ARCO Olympic Training Center and the University of San Diego athletic department.
