Community Outreach

Improving Bone and Joint Health for All

Beginning with our founder, Dr. Willis C. Campbell, the physicians and allied health professionals at Campbell Clinic have provided critical orthopaedic interventions to improve the lives of both children and adults who couldn’t access our services otherwise. We believe that enhancing the quality of life through orthopaedic excellence should be available to everyone, and the Campbell Clinic Foundation provides key funding for all of our outreach initiatives.

Center of Excellence for Cerebral Palsy Care & Research at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital

Since January 2018, the Campbell Clinic Foundation has led a comprehensive, multidisciplinary outpatient clinic focused on children with cerebral palsy in partnership with Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, thanks to a transformational $1,000,000 commemorative grant from the Children’s Foundation of Memphis.  In 2021 alone, the Center served more than 415 patients and their families!

Under the talented, compassionate leadership of Campbell Clinic pediatric orthopaedic surgeons, Dr. William Warner and Dr. David Spence, a dedicated team of nurses, therapists and subs-specialty physicians strives to meet the unique needs of each and every patient. As the last four years have passed, the clinic reaches more patients, delivers more resources and identifies better ways to serve children and families seeking care at all Gross Motor Functional Classification Levels (GMFCS).

We are incredibly grateful for generous support of individuals, families and allies in children’s health, including Orthopediatrics, Center for Orthotics and Prosthetics, the Plough Foundation and Shelby County Board of Commissioners.

Campbell Residency International Elective

The desire to serve extends beyond our borders to annual medical mission trips, where Campbell surgeons and residents provide care and training to high-need communities in developing countries. These experiences change the lives of orthopaedic surgeons and the patients they serve. The Molly Shumate Scholarship Fund provides funding for travel, training and outreach to patients and healthcare organizations in countries in Latin America and Asia.

Outreach to Regional One Health

Campbell Clinic physicians’ expertise and compassionate care are available to all the area’s children and adults regardless of ability to pay. From trauma care at Regional One and Methodist University Hospital to pediatric orthopaedic care at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and Baptist Memorial Health Care, patients receive excellent care across the Greater Memphis region. Funding for outreach programs is provided by the Campbell Clinic Foundation.

Outreach Clinics

Each year, community clinics support uninsured and under-insured individuals who depend on charitable clinics for care. Each year, Campbell Clinic Foot & Ankle subspecialist, Dr. David Richardson, leads the Our Hearts to Your Soles outreach event at Memphis Union Mission, providing foot care, socks and shoes. In addition, throughout the year, Campbell staff and partners serve patients and community groups, offering hands-on experience, lectures and activities to address bone and joint health.
