Dr. Wright is an amazing surgeon. I suffered a very complicated tibial plateau fracture and due to Dr. Wright's skill I am walking and able to live a normal life again. He is smart, personable and really listens to what you are telling him. I have total confidence in Dr Wright and the staff at his office. I highly recommend Dr. Wright.

I broke my wrist ice skating and went to the ER. The break required a plate, and Dr. Wright was the surgeon on call. He did surgery that night. He did an excellent job with the surgery, and I am very happy with the results. He thoroughly addressed all my questions and concerns. I feel very fortunate that he was the one on call!
Dr Wright did my anterior hip replacement 2 months ago. I suffered from hip pain for years, and Dr Wright put my mind at ease that he could help get back to a normal life. Every step of the process went so smoothly, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I was walking the same day of surgery, and the pain I suffered from for years was gone. I was ready to go home the day after surgery! My life has been forever changed, and I have Dr Wright for it. I could not be happier!
