LEXINGTON, KY— Wednesday, October 2, 2013 —Lexington Clinic orthopedic surgeon and founder of The Shoulder Center of Kentucky, W. Ben Kibler, MD, FACSM, was recently named one of the top twenty-eight shoulder surgeons in North America.
A survey of fellow shoulder surgeons and thought leaders in the field conducted by “Orthopedics This Week”, the most widely read publication in the orthopedics industry, gathered opinions and commentary on shoulder surgeons at the top of their game.
“His knowledge of the biomechanics of the shoulder and of the scapula is extremely impressive,” one voter said of Kibler. “He is quite an innovator in terms of thinking of scapular function in overhead throwing athletes.”
Through research findings and years of building a highly regarded practice, Kibler has achieved international esteem both personally and professionally and is often consulted as an expert in the field.
