Campbell Clinic’s emphasis is on taking care of the Greater Memphis area by providing the highest quality orthopedic care. Dr. Tyler Brolin discusses the new state-of-the-art facility and their Excel performance and wellness center, which is led by former NBA trainer of the year, Drew Graham. Excel will be for athletes and anyone who simply wants to improve their physical fitness. Members will benefit from utilizing innovative equipment like water treadmills, antigravity treadmills, and the most recent techniques in recovery and fitness.
