Steelers Orthopedic Surgeon James Bradley, MD is being honored with the Ralph C. Wilde Leadership Award. The award is presented by Allegheny County Medical Society Foundation (ACMSF), and recognizes a physician who demonstrates exceptional skill in their clinical care of patients and dedication to the ideals of the medical profession as a teacher or profession leader.

Dr. Bradley has been the Steelers Orthopedic Surgeon for 26 years and is a past president of the National Football League Physicians Society. He is currently chairman of the NFL's Medical Research Peer Review Committee and also serves on the NFL Injury and Safety Panel Committee.
"For the past quarter century, the Steelers have been fortunate to be serviced by one of the finest orthopedic consultants in the business," said Steelers Head Athletic Trainer John Norwig. "Caring for professional athletes can be challenging; many times you are not only treating the athlete, but those who manage him. Dr. Bradley navigates these obstacles through expertise and a genuine care for the athlete. He is respected and appreciated by athletes, agents, team administrators and coaches."
Last summer Bradley was honored by the NFL Physicians Society with the Systematic Review Award for Posterior Instability of the Shoulder: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Clinical Outcomes.
