Campbell Clinic Receives “Center of Excellence” Distinction Held by Only 5 Orthopaedic Groups in the Nation
(Memphis, TN) – Castle Connolly recently named Campbell Clinic as a Center of Excellence, a distinction held by only twenty-six medical practices and five orthopaedic groups in the entire nation. Campbell Clinic is the only orthopaedic group outside of the Northeast to receive this designation. Three other orthopaedic practices on the list are in New York City and one is in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Castle Connolly notes that its Centers of Excellence program showcases select hospitals and group practices within their database to share information on services and recognitions to better inform patients and caregivers when making treatment decisions. This partnership makes it easier for patients to find top doctors affiliated with leading institutions based on healthcare criteria important to them.
"Receiving such a rare distinction from Castle Connolly is a high honor," says Dr. Fred Azar, Chief of Staff for Campbell Clinic. "We aim to provide world-class orthopaedic care to our patients – and so we are incredibly humbled to be named a ‘Center of Excellence’ on a national level."
Castle Connolly is widely known for its peer-nominated, researcher-vetted Top Doctors List on which twenty-seven Campbell Clinic surgeons were included in the Southeast Region in the 2023 Orthopaedics Category, by far the most of any practice throughout the entire region across Tennessee, Arkansas or Mississippi in this category.
For 30 years, Castle Connolly’s goal has been to connect patients with best-in-class healthcare providers. For more information on Castle Connolly or its Centers of Excellence, visit
