EmergeOrtho—Triangle Region is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Josh Hudgens to the expert orthopedic care team. Dr. Hudgens specializes in shoulder surgery, where his experience and expertise allow him to treat multiple shoulder conditions.
As a fellowship-trained surgeon, Dr. Hudgens aims to get his patients to recover the function and use of their arms, whether returning to competitive sports or simply regaining the ability to get their arms overhead without pain.
“I am thrilled to join the EmergeOrtho—Triangle Region team,” Dr. Hudgens said. “My experience in shoulder surgery focused on patient-first treatment allows me to help patients regain function in their arm so they can return to the activities they love the most.”
Dr. Hudgens underwent advanced training, completing a shoulder and elbow surgery fellowship at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He focused on advanced and complex shoulder repair and reconstruction during his fellowship. Dr. Hudgens gained additional exposure to shoulder and elbow surgical techniques at one of North America’s premier upper extremity centers, the Roth McFarlane Hand and Upper Limb Center in London, Ontario, Canada.
