For the most severe tears, our orthopaedic providers have expertise in the most advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques. So whether you’re 18 or 88 or whether your injury occurred on the soccer field or from a fall, we can fix what ails you.

It is our goal to get you back on your feet and on the carpet or the field as soon as possible.

WakeMed and the North Carolina Football Club (NCFC) are partners in providing young athletes and their families with information on nutrition and injury prevention, including proper stretching before activities.
