Dr. Jeffrey Selby, Interim Chair of Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine discusses Top 50 ranking

My name is Jeff Selby. I’m the acting Chairman
in the Department of Orthopedics at
University of Kentucky. This matters to
patients because this is evaluated by
other physicians that recommend these facilities,
also by the consumers. And it takes a lot to be ranked
by US News and World Report. One of the things that
we’re most proud of is our staff that we have here
at the University of Kentucky. Department of Orthopedic
Surgery has specific staff in our operating
rooms as well as on our nursing
floors that really help to streamline the care. I know, specifically,
in joint replacement we have some of the best nurses
in the city that are dedicated to our patients, and
our patients routinely have compliments on the floor
that they were surprised how good of care they received. I think the success
of orthopedics is based on the whole system
that we have at the university. The orthopedic surgeons
work within a system of nurses and
administration who are all looking after the patient’s care
and looking for ways to treat patients better every day. There’s also research that’s
done in this hospital, and this will help keep
us on top of our game when treating
orthopedic patients.
