For nearly a century, Campbell Clinic has been a leader in the field of orthopaedics. This course was immediately set by our founder, Dr. Willis C. Campbell, when he opened his clinic in 1909. In the years following, 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), serving as its first president. Dr. Campbell even wrote the first textbook on orthopaedics, titled Campbell’s Operative Orthopaedics. This textbook is now in its 11th edition, is published in 7 different languages, and is the largest selling orthopaedic textbook in the world.
Today, The 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.
