COOKEVILLE – Campbell Clinic Orthopaedics, the largest and oldest multi-specialty orthopaedic practice in West Tennessee, has announced a partnership with Tier 1 Orthopedic and Neurosurgical Institute headquartered in Cookeville. As part of the alliance, Tier 1’s orthopaedic physicians will have access to Campbell Clinic’s clinical research as well as its care team’s best practices, standard approaches and clinical processes, all of which are designed to improve patient outcomes.

Tier 1 is comprised of 11 physicians. The practice offers a full range of multi-specialty orthopaedic and neurological services and has locations in Cookeville and Crossville and serves residents in the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee.

“When looking for a partner, we focused on finding an institution that shares our commitment to providing the highest quality care and leading-edge orthopaedic expertise,” said Dr. Greg Roberts of Tier 1. “Most importantly, we aimed to align with a group whose dedication to patients has been unwavering during the challenging healthcare climate. There is no one better than Campbell Clinic that checks all those boxes.”
