He's the BEST in the business!!!!!!
Dr. Wyker is and has always been a professional in every sense of the word! I have been going to Dr. Wyker for at least 30 years and he has always given me and everyone in my family only the best of care. Whether it's my knees, or my shoulders, he has fixed them all. When I thought that I had messed something up where it couldn't be fixed, he always figured out a way to make it work. I can't say enough good things about him. Of course, I have always been impressed with Raleigh Orthopedic.

Excellent care from Dr. Wyker and Raleigh Orthoped
My visit with Dr. Wyker on May 5, definitely, helped me. I twisted my left knee, two weeks, ago. X-rays were taken, he assessed the lateral meniscus problem, knows what works for me, gets on with it. A cortisone shot, which has already helped with the pain. I continue to do leg exercises in my chilly swimming pool. It takes time to heal. My sixth visit with Dr. Wyker, for different issues, left shoulder and right knee, excellent results. I am so pleased, with the care at Raleigh Orthopedic, polite and efficient, nurses and X-ray technician, Eric.
