If you are in need of an orthopedic surgeon I highly recommend Dr. Mark Wood. I recently relocated to North Carolina and my brother in-law recommended him to me. I have had two previous rotator cuff surgeries( left and right arm) by a highly qualified proficient surgeon. Dr. Wood performed my third rotator cuff surgery and I am here to tell you this was the best surgery by far. Dr.Wood's professionalism, and orthopedic expertise are above reproach!! If you need surgery-get the very best Dr.Wood.

I loved Dr. Wood and his staff! I was so nervous about surgery due to the fact I had never had any type of major surgery. Dr. Wood listened to my concerns and explained what to expect. He took his time with me and didn't make me feel like a number. When surgery time came, he came to assure me that everything would be ok and not to be nervous. He calmed my nervousness and surgery was successful! I would highly recommend him!

Great Doctor, great staff. I had a rotator cuff surgery and Dr. Wood explained everything very clearly and told me what to expect, his staff made sure I had everything I needed and answered any questions I had at any time. I would definitely recommend Dr. Wood.

Awesome surgeon! Will always go to him when I have a need for orthopedic surgery. He has a great bedside manner, and explains what's going on with you in a language you can understand. He's not rushed and takes his time with you. His staff is excellent.

Dr. Wood was outstanding. From the time my daughter tore her ACL through her recovery he was everything we could hope for and more. He was knowledgeable, informative, compassionate, and attentive to detail. The surgery was a success and her recovery progressed without issue. She is now over one year post surgery and has no limitations or restrictions. I highly recommend Dr. Wood.

Dr. Wood and his team are top notch! Kristy and Lisa go above and beyond to make sure I'm taken care of in between appointments. They are honestly some of the most kind hearted people I know! You can tell that they truly care about their patients.
