My 5 year old, who has some sensory and anxiety struggles, cut his tendon in his finger. Dr. Luther and his staff were absolutely wonderful! Not only did Dr. Luther do an amazing job on the surgery to repair the tendon, but his staff and therapist were so on top of making sure he gained full motion back in his finger. So thankful!!!

Recently treated for fractures of the ulna and radius in my wrist area. Went through the hard cast process and then the soft brace for several weeks. Dr. Luther was very thorough and also very personable. He was good at explaining the plan for treatment and follow-up procedures.

I chose Dr. Luther to treat my thumb arthritis and he has been wonderful. I didnt even know there were surgery options and he took the time to explain everything without being rushed. My right hand feels amazing, going back for the left side this year. Id highly recommend him as a hand surgeon.

Hands down the best doctor I've seen. Had two hand surgeries- one to improve the arthritis in my wrist and another for a broken scaphoid- and even with both of these Im still golfing. Fantastic!

Dr. Luther saw my son for his thumbs. He was born with congenital thumbs that were smaller and more unstable than normal. As a parent, all you can do is worry- but after meeting Dr. Luther I could not have felt more comfortable. He explained everything, even referred us to the proper pediatricians for genetic testing, and eventually proceeded to reconstruct the right thumb. My son is now using his hands like never before- I could not be more grateful. We are planning on having the other side done in a few months.

Dr. Luther has been my surgeon for 3, and eventually 4, surgeries. I originally saw him for a very severe radius fracture in October of 2018. During the whole process he was incredibly kind and thorough. He tired to convey the seriousness of the injury while being positive about the out come. I felt confident that I was making the right choice in having surgery. He even told me that if I felt like I needed a second or third opinion he could give me some names of other surgeons. The staff surrounding him (especially Debbie) at Wake orthopedics Cary, Apex, and Garner locations, where also incredible. I literally cannot say enough good things about him.

Dr. Luther was friendly, knowledgeable, and I never felt like he was in a rush to move on to the next patient—-which, in my experience, is very rare. He’s also the only doctor that has given me a cortisone shot that didn’t cause excruciating pain! I Greatly appreciate the fact that I Never felt rushed; he was kind and caring and I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Luther is very professional and cares for his patients. We were lucky to have Dr. Luther take care of our son. He knew what was needed right away. Always provided feedback and ensured all questions were answered. Great Doctor.

I read a December review from a person with trigger thumbs and arthritis before my appt. for what I was pretty sure was the same problem. I found Dr. Luther very respectful, patient and kind. At that same appt., he explained my xrays to me and administered cortisone shots to my thumbs quickly and caringly. One week later, both thumbs are already returning to normal. I would seriously disregard that other review.

Dr. Luther repaired my scaphoid bone. The fracture required surgery to insurt a screw to pull the two pieces together. Having never had a broken bone or surgery, I was a little apprehensive. The surgery was a complete success and at four months out I am back to normal activity. I felt there was no question I couldn’t ask he or his staff.

Dr Luther treated and operated on my broken wrist and did tremendously. I have tattoo work and he did not mess anything up with the incision and stitching. He is very patient and truly cares about my recovery and concerns. He always answers any questions I have and I would highly recommend him in the unfortunate event that his services would be needed. He also is the only doctor I've had that I don't have to wait 30 minutes in the exam room for - very quick and efficient!

I cannot recommend him enough. I fractured and dislocated my elbow and he fixed me the next day. He is absolutely wonderful and really takes the time to speak to his patients. I could not be happier and was lucky I found him. I recovered almost fully in just 2 months.

Dr Luther, Debbie and his staff were great! He did surgery for a nerve injury after I cut my forearm. Even though it was a hard injury, they have always been here to answer all my questions and so kind. I recommend him to absolutely anyone!!

I told Doctor Luther symptoms I was having in my hands, and tried to show him what was happening. He made a face like he thought I was senile and changed the subject to what he was intending to do for arthritis. Turns out I have trigger finger in both thumbs, and both index fingers. What good is he, if he couldn't figure that out? I had to figure that out myself afterwards. I'm seeing another Orthopedic Surgeon now.

I saw him for a second opinion after a surgery on my wrist failed. He diagnosed me with the correct problem and revised my prior surgery- literally one week later I already felt better. Already recommending him to other friends and family
