UI Physicians Make Best Knee Surgeons List

A pair of orthopedic specialists at UI Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City are included on the "70 of the Best Knee Surgeons in America" list published in January by Becker's Orthopedic and Spine Review.

The UI surgeons are Ned Amendola, MD, and John Callaghan, MD. Amendola directs UI Sports Medicine. Callaghan also serves as the president of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Members of the list were selected for their leadership in prestigious orthopedic organizations and their immense procedural and technological contributions to the field of knee surgery.

Physicians do not pay and cannot pay to be selected as a best physician on this list.

Becker's Orthopedic & Spine Review is a Chicago-based publication focusing on orthopedic surgery, spine surgery, sports medicine and surgery center management. The primary contributors and audience for the publication are orthopedic and spine surgeons and surgeon leaders.
