OUR PHILOSOPHY AT WOLFSON ORTHOPaEDICS

At Wolfson Orthopedics, we treat patients with respect, understanding, and expertise. Dr. Wolfson is double-fellowship trained in joint replacement and orthopedic trauma surgery, but he believes in the importance of exploring non-surgical options whenever possible. Combining education, special appliances, and customized treatment plans, he works closely with each patient to develop a course of treatment that will provide relief and return functionality without invasive procedures. If surgery is necessary, Dr. Wolfson uses the most advanced, minimally-invasive techniques to reduce discomfort and recovery time, getting you back to everyday life as quickly and as effectively as possible.

    My son broke his arm on Thanksgiving morning. Dr. Wolfson was just amazing at explaining what was needed and why. He was so sensitive in handling our stress and my son's pain.

    The appointment was short because my ankle was not broken, but I didn't feel like he was rushing, he really seemed to care. The other staff in the office were nice and scheduling was not a problem.
