A world-class clinic founded by a giant in the field.
For nearly a century, Campbell Clinic has been a leading figure in orthopaedics. It is a course immediately set by our founder, Dr. Willis C. Campbell when he opened his clinic in 1909. In the years following that event, Dr. Campbell organized the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at The University of Tennessee-Memphis, established the first orthopaedic residency program, and co-founded The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and served as its first president. His knowledge and influence ran so deep that he even wrote the first textbook on the subject—known as Campbell’s Operative Orthopaedics—which soon became the definitive work on the specialty, and retains that status even now.
Today, Campbell Clinic is recognized as a world leader in sports medicine, pediatric orthopaedics, joint replacement, orthopaedic oncology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and surgery of the hand, hip, foot, knee, shoulder and spine.
Our current team of specialists is dedicated to the mission of providing unsurpassed patient care while continuing the clinic’s role as the leader in teaching and research in orthopaedic surgery.
