Drs. Darren Johnson, chairman of UK Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine, and Christian Lattermann, director of cartilage repair and restoration, have been ranked as two of the “16 Standout North American Sports Knee Surgeons” by the publication Orthopedics This Week, the most widely read publication in the Orthopedics industry.

“I am truly honored and humbled to be recognized at this level. I have always strived to provide the best care to the patients I serve,” said Johnson, who has been working at UK since 1993 and serves as chair of the department. “This could not be accomplished without those that I work with in my department including colleagues and partners, residents and fellows, athletic training staff as well as our overall staff support in the clinic and operating room.”

Lattermann was also included in the ranking and serves as director of cartilage repair and restoration. “This honor is the result of hard work towards the orthopaedic mission at the University of Kentucky,” he said. “As a physician scientist I am particularly happy to be included in this list of outstanding sports medicine physicians.”
