Nathan L. Cafferky, M.D., joint replacement and revision of the hip and knee surgeon at Vail-Summit Orthopaedics, was recently honored with the 2016 Rising Star Award at Vail Valley Medical Center in Vail. This award is given every year to a physician who has been on staff at VVMC for five years or less and exemplifies leadership, quality patient care, contributions to the community and hospital and the utilization of evidence-based medicine in daily practice. 

Dr. Cafferky joined Vail-Summit Orthopaedics in August 2015 and has been operating on patients at VVMC since then. He was nominated for the Rising Star Award by the administrative staff at Vail-Summit Orthopaedics and was chosen as the recipient by his peers, physician leadership and hospital administration at VVMC.

“We are proud of Dr. Cafferky for this accomplishment and happy to have him as part of our team at Vail-Summit Orthopaedics,” says Dr. Richard Cunningham, president and surgeon at Vail-Summit Orthopaedics. “This award is a testament to his commitment to excellence, expert training, and compassionate care.”
