Dr. Lang is a fellowship-trained, orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee replacement. A native of North Carolina, Dr. Lang was born and raised in Durham. His parents were both in medicine, with his father being an orthopaedic surgeon and his mother a nurse. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Johns Hopkins University before going to Duke University for medical school. Dr. Lang completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Duke Medical Center. He continued his training at New England Baptist Hospital as an Otto E. Aufranc Adult Reconstruction fellow, receiving experience in the performance of both primary and complex revision hip and knee surgery. Dr. Lang joined the staff at Wake Forest University in 2007, after finishing the program in Boston, and spent 9 years there as an Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery. During that time, Dr. Lang led the Adult Reconstruction Section, and helped build a Joint Replacement program. EmergeOrtho welcomes Dr. Lang to the organization as he brings extensive experience in less-invasive techniques including direct anterior approach hip replacement and partial knee replacement. He also brings experience using patient specific instrumentation (PSI) and computer navigation to perform knee replacement surgeries. Dr. Lang also specializes in surgery for failed or poorly performing hip and knee replacements, known as "revision surgery".
