Dr. Brian Wallace is perhaps the ultimate team player. He is a sports medicine orthopedic surgeon at Joint Replacement Institute, where he is respected for the contributions he has made to the organization.

“Since moving to Naples in 2014 Dr. Wallace has progressed to being a very well-respected orthopedic surgeon in the Southwest Florida area–especially at his younger age,” says his nominator. “He has helped further the Joint Replacement Institute as one of the leaders in the medical community.”

Wallace has also been at the ready for numerous athletes in a variety of sports. Commitments include head team surgeon for Ave Maria collegiate and club sport (done pro-bono), the USTA/ITF World Tennis Tour Tournament in Naples, Everblades Hockey team and the GBE Shootout golf tournament in Naples.

Wallace and his wife, Lisa Fenda Wallace, a trainer at Orange Theory Fitness, have a son, Tristan. They also have two Great Danes and are huge Cleveland sports fans.
