Dr. Wright has worked on my knee many times. I am a veteran and had substantial issues that he corrected. Not only was he able to repair the damage, but I am doing the hobbies and things I truly love with his oversight. He can help you get as close to getting everything you want back as you safely can. He understands that living life the way you want is a part of the equation. I won't trust any ortho surgeries to anyone else. I can't endorse him enough.

Dr. Wright is a great doctor. Other doctors & surgeons have recomended him as the 'go to guy' for knee replacement surgery. He replaced 1 of my knees & without a doubt I will have him do my other knee. If I had one criticism it would not be of him but the hospital- they keep him so busy that he barely has a chance to check up on his patients post-op. He is very nice & so is his physician assistant, Sheila Fleer. She goes above & beyond to help Dr. Wright's patients. Lorie Campbell
