Local doc a 'hot husband'
June 23, 2009


Redbook magazine readers have decided that a local surgeon is one of America's hottest husbands.

Dr. Adam Budny, a foot-and-ankle specialist with Blair Orthopedics in Altoona, is one of five runners up in the magazine's 10th annual Hottest Husband contest. His wife, Karissa Budny, nominated him for the honor, and votes were accepted online from Feb. 18 through March 31.

Redbook executive editor Alison Brower wrote in an e-mail that the contest "received thousands of votes from all over the country. It was a close race!"

There are no prizes for clinching a runner-up spot, but Budny will be featured in the July edition of the magazine, which hits newsstands today. A profile of him also appears online at

Karissa said the Hottest Husband contest had been a "fun time" for the couple, though she wasn't surprised by the results.

"I knew it all along," she said with a laugh. "But it's exciting."
