Campbell Clinic Tops Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors List with More Surgeons in Southwest Region than any other Group

(Memphis, TN) – Castle Connolly recently released its Top Doctors list for 2023 and twenty-seven of the surgeons listed in the Southeast Region in the Orthopaedics Category are from Campbell Clinic, by far the most of any practice throughout the entire region across Tennessee, Arkansas or Mississippi in this category.

This year’s complete Castle Connolly Top Doctors List represents more than 63,000 doctors or the top 7% of doctors across the nation, each of whom were nominated by their peers and vetted by Castle Connolly’s research team to be selected for inclusion in the 2023 list. This year marks Castle Connolly’s 30th anniversary of the publication of their annual list.

“Being ranked atop this prestigious list is an honor – and having the most surgeons included over any practice in the Southeast Region is even more humbling,” says Dr. Fred Azar, Chief of Staff for Campbell Clinic. “This recognition by Castle Connolly is further evidence of our team’s unparalleled dedication to superior orthopaedic care and optimal patient outcomes.”

For 30 years, Castle Connolly’s goal has been to connect patients with best-in-class healthcare providers. Their physician-led research team thoroughly screens each nomination to ensure that every Top Doctor selection meets Castle Connolly’s rigorous standards. Castle Connolly Top Doctors do not pay to receive this elite designation. Its Top Doctors list is an unbiased directory designed to link patients with quality care. For more information, visit
