The Pittsburgh Steelers co-head team physician recently made the ranks as one of Becker’s Spine Review’s top 59 surgeons in the country. “I am both humbled and encouraged by it. To gain the trust and respect of this elite community, especially the NFL, is a distinct honor,” says Dr. James Bradley, who was one of eight NFL doctors on the list. Also a clinical professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Dr. Bradley is grateful for the opportunities through UPMC Sports Medicine to continually educate himself with new techniques and technologies. The Steelers organization itself has pushed him to improve his skills, elevating players’ athleticism and lives. “Mr. Rooney gave me this opportunity more than 25 years ago, and it’s been a great experience,” Dr. Bradley says. “It’s made me a better surgeon, and in turn, that’s helped athletes get back to the game faster. There’s no better organization in the NFL.”
