Like anything else in healthcare, you probably didn’t know much about orthopaedics until you needed an orthopaedic doctor. At Wake Forest Baptist, our orthopaedics program is one of the most popular in the state. We treat every type of condition—from broken bones to complex joint replacements—with advanced techniques and research-based approaches.
Specialized Techniques for Treatment and Surgery
At Wake Forest, our orthopaedic surgeons and specialists are known throughout the region as some of the best doctors in the area. Many of them specialize in unique procedures not performed at any other area hospital, many of which are minimally invasive. Because we are involved in orthopaedic research, we have also implemented new pain and anesthesia protocols not found in other community hospitals.
Minimally Invasive Approaches Whenever Possible
We know that people don’t want to stop living their lives because of an orthopaedic injury or condition. The prospect of traditional surgery usually meant a long recovery time, with long stays in the hospital and months of rehabilitation. But, with our advances in both surgery and rehabilitation, that is no longer true. Whenever possible, our orthopaedic surgeons will recommend a minimally invasive approach. Minimally invasive orthopaedic surgeries reduce recovery time, pain and risk of infection for our patients.
Routine Care and Specialization
