I couldn't imagine a better interaction with a surgeon. From our initial introduction resulting from an accidental cutting of my wrist, including a nerve and tendon, though the surgery and follow-up care, Dr. Luther answered all of my questions (and wife's), giving us clear explanations of the problems, planned actions and risks. My hand and wrist has recovered with 100% of its full function.

Dr. Luther exceeded my expectations in all facets of care. He, along with his team exhibit an excellent balance of care, empathy, understanding, knowledge that puts one at ease during the entire process. As a 60 year old very active, athletic male who had never encountered a need for surgery or experienced a broken bone, finding out that I had totally ruptured my tricep tendon was quite jarring. Upon the first consult with Dr. Luther many of my anxieties were put to ease although it was still a situation of facing the unknown. I highly recommend Dr. Luther and team; especially if you are in need of a surgeon who is very patient and compassionate to his patients.

Dr. Gaurav is a wonderful doctor! He is caring, patient, and extremely skilled. I injured an elbow which required surgery. I am so thankful that he was the doctor on call. I could have spent days looking up doctors and not have gotten a better surgeon. I believe I got the best with him. I had hardly any pain at all following the surgery or during my recovery. And he repaired me to where I have full use of my arm and elbow as if the injury never occurred. If I ever require surgery again, I would want him for the surgeon.

Each visit with Dr. Luther, and the people who work with him was a pleasure. Had a pretty bad break in my finger which he repaired. After the surgery I saw him in 3 different offices. Dr. Luther was a delight to work with. Furthermore, every interaction I had at each of 3 different offices: from the Office Admins, the X-Ray Techs, the Nurses and Nurse Assistants was a pleasure. His Medical Assistant--Debbie L is your friend--you will love her. Additionally, the Urgent Care at Falls of the Neuse Road, associated with this office was top notch.  I want to call out the OT at the Apex office, Colleen. She helped me to get mobility back in my hand after the surgery; especially with a finger that was not broken but was dislocated and I had given up on. I give Colleen all sorts of credit for the current mobility in my hand. She's gifted in her field and fun to work with.

Dr. Luther is an excellent surgeon. I would highly recommend him for a best care. I had 2 surgeries on my hand. He explained the condition well and treated me without any trouble.I healed well in few weeks as expected. Answered all questions and helped in many ways. His staff were friendly and very helpful. I had my hand problem for past 8 years and Dr Luther found the cause and treated both hands and my numbness vanished away , healed well and I got my hands back. I would say I am really lucky to have Dr Luther as my surgeon and he cured my problem. 100% Satisfaction.

I have been very happy with exceptional service I received from Doctor Luther. I had an accident and there were multiple fractures on left hand and wrist. He performed surgery on me at the hospital and I have visited him a few time for post surgery follow up. He explains the situation extremely well with positive outlook. I will recommend him to any one needing surgery and care.

Dr Luther is very compassionate and really cares about his patients. He was thorough and very clear in how I should manage my injury. I would highly recommend him! The staff was personable and helpful. And I have never had consistently short wait times with any other practice. I think the longest I waited was 10 minutes!

Recently I had a bad fall and broke my elbow and was recommended to Dr. Luther for his opinion and boy was I lucky. He did not sugar coat the damage of the fracture or promised me anything just gave me the facts. His knowledge was impressive and made me feel I was in the right hands. He suggested surgery and physical therapy which we all hate hear. After the surgery he told me what to expect the final out come would be and after a long rehab and rounds of physical therapy my elbow is exactly at the levels he told me at the beginning. Thank you for all your help and support.

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.
