PATIENT REVIEWS

I had a wrist fracture which Dr. Aldridge said was one of the worst he had seen. The radius was rotated and splintered and required a plate and lots of pegs and wires to stabilize it. Although wrist fractures can take up to a year to heal, he told me I can expect to return to normal function. I am grateful for his skill in repairing it. On rechecks he was very supportive and assured me that healing was proceeding well. At three months post-op I am able to do most of my daily activities without pain.

Dr. Aldridge and staff were very considerate and patient with my concerns. He explained each step as he treated me.

Dr Aldridge has helped me tremendously with my torn flexor tendon. His knowledge, caring demeanor & attention to detail all make him a wonderful surgeon & he has helped a lot of people that I know from my community. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Aldridge and Dr. Hage are both great orthopedic surgeons who are very willing to listen to what I had to say. Both of the doctors have AWESOME PA’s and nursing staff! 5 outta 5

Excellent care. Appointment was right on time. Courteous and friendly staff.

Dr. Aldridge is excellent. I needed cortisone shots in both wrists, which he completed same day, with very little discomfort!

Dr Mac Aldridge is awesome. Been seeing him for years and he listens to me. Very kind and thoughtful. The X-ray tech was really nice too.

Wonderfully treated. Warm greetings, efficient, and caring.

Dr. Aldridge was great. He diagnosed me correctly and answered all of my questions. He was thorough, attentive, and had solutions.

Dr Aldridge went above and beyond to get me scheduled as soon as possible for treatment. His entire team is wonderful, from the front check-in and everyone in between. Wonderful physician, great office!

Great

Dr. Aldridge provided excellent care to my son after he broke his arm. Two surgeries for a 10 year old could have been a scary process. Dr. Aldridge was thoughtful and informative.

Went to see Dr Aldridge because of the inability to close my left hand! As always he knew exactly what was and after he injected the joint l, I can use my hand again like normal! If you have any type of hand issue I whole heartily recommend him and Emerge Ortho!

Dr. Aldridge, who specializes in hand surgery, is an unusually good listener and communicator. Excellent diagnostician. Attentive to surgery alternatives for carpal tunnel issues and paresthesia (numbness). To transfer Duke records, ask for Powershare request from Emergortho to Duke.

Choosing Dr. Aldridge was the best decision I could have made. I came into his office with a non union scaphoid. It was broken months earlier in a motorcycle crash and failed to heal. Dr. Aldridge was able to surgically repair the break, and I saw healing milestones weeks ahead of schedule! I could not be more grateful to Dr. Aldridge and his team at Emergeortho!

Dr. Mack Aldridge did my surgery when I broke my wrist 8 years so when I broke my other wrist, I was very happy Dr. Aldridge was available to do my surgery again. He is extremely kind & professional.

Efficient, attentive and professional service with great insight.

Dr Aldridge spent time examining my hand and explaining what was wrong. He was reassuring and I felt confident in his abilities and knowledge in my injury. Great surgeon with a bed side manner to match. Thank you for all you do Dr Aldridge.

Dr. Aldridge listened to all of my questions/concerns and responded in an manner that was easy to understand. Dr. Aldridge and his PA- Brian Wood medical professionals who listen intently and both have a wonderful bedside manner. I highly recommend Emerge Ortho

Great service. Went over everything thing with me and told me my options.

Other than appointments running behind by 30+ minutes the office visit was excellant. All personnel were exceptional as normal

Pleasant clean atmosphere everyone was friendly and respectful waiting wasn't long social distance was enforced I clearly understood my medical condition looking forward to seeing you soon thanks stay safe

I saw Dr. Aldridge for evaluation and repair of nerve damage to my hand as a result of an accident. At every stage of evaluation and treatment Dr. Aldridge displayed consummate professionalism complemented by sincere concern for my problem and achieving the best result. Every examination was deliberate and thorough, containing detailed explanations of findings and plans for treatment. The resultant microsurgery expertly performed by Dr. Aldridge consisted of seven nerve grafts in my hand. Subsequent recovery followed exactly as Dr. Aldridge had predicted prior to surgery. Follow up appointments over the twelve month recovery period were detailed and informative with all my questions promptly answered. Recently released, I firmly believe Dr. Aldridge achieved the best result possible considering my injury. Dr. Aldridge is the epitome of what any physician should be. While obviously highly educated and well trained, he also exhibits a “beside manner” which puts any patient immediately at ease, inspiring confidence that he truly cares about your care and treatment. It’s obvious from his curriculum vitae that he is at the top of his field, a fact I can verify after being his patient. Quite simply, Dr. Aldridge is the best. I most highly recommend him to anyone looking for a hand surgeon.

Very easy to get an appointment. Dr. Aldridge is the best! Very competent, friendly, explains everything. I moved out of the area but still came back to see him.

Easy in and out and Dr Aldridge understands hands and is really good at what he does. He operated on both my hands 10 or more years ago and until now no problems. The shots that I received on this trip seem to be working. Thank you Dr Aldridge

Very professional organization and personnel!

The staff was very welcoming once I walked through the doors. The smiles from the receptionist to the Dr aid. The Dr aid was very sincere in her caring and respectful to this senior citizen. The facility was very clean and I must say the decor was pleasing and soft to the eyes.

I had an appointment with Dr Alridge about numbness and aching in my hands. He examined my hands and then scheduled me for some testing so he could make a more accurate assessment. After the testing I met with Dr Alridge again. He explained the test results to me thoroughly and gave me the options. Dr Alridge gave me a cortisone shot and we will see how this works. He was very thorough and explained everything to me well. I felt very comfortable with Dr Alridge and his diagnosis. He is very friendly and takes his time and does not rush. I trust Dr Alridge and would highly recommend him and his staff. 😊😊😊🤩🤩🤩

Major elbow surgery from mountain bike crash. Was back on bike at 80% in 2.5 months Amazing !

Dr. Aldridge was so kind, and he explained just what was causing my pain and discomfort that are continuing from a surgery on mt right hand that had been performed by another doctor months ago. He discussed my options with me at length, and then provided the least invasive treatment. After months of pain, I have finally been given some relief. More importantly, I have been given hope that my pain will soon end. I am so thankful that my friend told me about Dr. Aldridge. What a blessing and an answer to my prayers!!! I highly recommend Dr. Aldridge!

Very successful visit, Dr. Aldridge impressed me as very professional, as I had already heard. We feel blessed to be sent to EmergeOrtho by Dr. Miller of your Burlington facility, being first forwarded to him by my dermatologist, Dr. Kowalski. Dr. Wilson, we were more than impressed by and his results and professional skills couldn't be better. Please don't think this to be a butter up. You folks have blessed up us and deserve the highest marks. THANK YOU !! Glenn S. Aldridge

I highly recommend Dr. Aldridge!

Dr Aldridge was friendly, professional and thorough. He answered all my questions in a patient manner. He explained in detail what was going on in my hands. I would definitely go back to him.

During my consultation with Dr. Aldridge for a broken scaphoid, he laid out detailed options for treatment, gave me his professional recommendation, and then allowed me the space and time to decide for myself which treatment to pursue, which I greatly appreciated. I opted for surgery (open reduction internal fixation) and Dr. Aldridge scheduled my operation within a few days. Several weeks of recovery and periodic check-ups later, my scaphoid bone has completely healed with no complications, and my wrist has almost returned to full range of motion with the help of guided physical therapy. To conclude, Dr. Aldridge and his staff (from reception to x-ray to surgery and everything in-between) are skilled, courteous, friendly, and exactly who I needed to recover from my broken wrist in a timely and pleasant manner. Thank you!

I am very happy I went to Dr. Aldridge.I thought my hand issues were just a product of overuse and old age.Diagnosing me with dupuytren's contracture.Treating me first with XIAFLEX and then minor surgery My hands are back doing things I haven't been able to do in years.Very happy with the outcome!

Having worked with my hands my entire life losing function ,I thought was just something that happened with age.I am glad I went to Dr Aldridge.The Dupuytren's contracture had made it difficult to do many simple things as holding a cup of coffee .After treatment I am back to doing all the things I have wanted to do for years but never having the time.Made my retirement much more rewarding

Dr. Aldridge has been my orthopaedic hand surgeon for 20 years. He had helped me tremendously. Having had rheumatoid arthritis since 1982, I am amazed at the helpful treatment Dr. Aldridge has given me and I am very functional. My last visit regarded pain in both wrists. He administered cortisone shots and I am already feeling better, even the next day.

Went in with a specific question, got a very clear answer. Exactly what I needed to know. Pleasant and efficient.

I went to EmergeOrtho-Durham yesterday on June 7th. I was experiencing numbness on my fingers with my left hand. Had a appointment with Dr. Aldridge. My 1st time seeing him. He was very professional explaining all options. He was very polite, and very knowledgeable.

My experience seeing Dr. Aldridge could not be more positive. The facility is well-laid-out, and all the tests I needed were performed on-site. The staff was friendly and efficient. I was seen very quickly and everyone complied with necessary social distancing. Dr. Aldridge was a pleasure to meet. He was professional and quite friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Aldridge and the practice to anyone requiring care for an orthopedic problem.

Outstanding doctor! I’ve seen several specialists for a long-standing arthritic problem with my hands. For the first time I have confidence that I’ve got a good treatment plan and a positive prognosis.

Dr. Aldridge is a wonderful doctor! He explains everything thoroughly, has a delightful personality, and is an excellent surgeon. I am grateful for such a kind, highly competent, caring physician.

I have been seeing Dr. Aldridge for about 5 years. If you are looking for a good doctor it’s him. He listens to your needs and answers all your question. The thing I like the most is he does not rush through your appointment it’s like 2 friends just talking. His staff is also very kind and caring. His office runs so smooth it makes me feel very comfortable being there. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in his field of medicine. But most of all a good man. Working in the medical field for many years I have very high standards of a good physician and he rates top of my list. The office it’s self is very neat and clean. When it came time to do my injections they were ready, tray properly organized and sanitary. So if you are are in need of not a Good Hand man, the Best is Dr. Aldridge.

I received excellent care under Dr Aldridge and his staff throughout my wrist surgery and follow-up therapy sessions. I could not have asked for a better overall experience.

Easy to schedule appointments, fantastic, friendly personnel, and Dr. Aldridge is Awesome!!

Great doctors, Great personal care!! Excellent bedside manner!! Dr. Aldridge is Awesome!!

Dr. Aldridge did surgery on my hand. From start to finish the process was carefully thought-out and organized. He is knowledgeable, caring, and a delight to work with. I found every step of the procedure designed to ease any concerns I had; the results were exactly as I had hoped, and I expect a full recovery of function in the near future.

Dr. Aldridge was amazing from start to finish- from cortisone injections to advisement, to surgery, to recovery! I could not have asked for a more caring, capable, and thorough physician. I have had over 15 surgeries in my long life and Dr. Aldridge rates at the top of all surgeons I have dealt with!

I was invited to leave a review for my FAVORITE dr because of National Drs Day that is coming up and of course the BEST AND ONLY Dr who deserves this review is my man Dr Aldridge! Thanks Dr Aldridge for using your gift and making this world a better place!!!

Dr Aldridge has done several procedures on my hands and has done an amazing job each time. He and his staff are very through and knowledgeable, as well as having great senses of humor. I had to have a finger and part of my hand amputated and he did such an outstanding job (after doing everything he could to save my finger) that it is very hard to tell that I only have 9 fingers. Most people do not notice at all. I have referred several people to him and all have had extraordinary results. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Aldridge gave me excellent care for my broken wrist and subsequent surgery. I can highly recommend him for not only his competence, but good humor, and caring demeanor. Dr. Aldridge did a great job of explaining the procedure and assuring me of a good recovery. His PA and staff were also great. I would strongly recommend him for anyone with hand and wrist concerns.

I would like to thank Dr Aldridge, as well as Emerge Ortho and NC Specialty Hospital for a great experience during my Distal Bicep Tendon Rupture Surgery. It seems odd to be saying that surgery was a great experience, but it was, aside from the injury and recovery, a very positive experience. Dr Aldridge is clear, concise and spends the time necessary to explain everything in a way that is easily understandable, and, of course, an excellent surgeon. I couldn't have asked for a more positive experience. Thank you Dr Aldridge.

Dr Aldridge has left a most impressive impression on me and I will never forget all he did for me! He may have fixed my hand but he left his footprint in my heart! He truly helped me with the same consistent compassion for 4 months. He never ever made me feel like I was a bother or that my pain and feelings weren’t real. He always believed me and tried his best to make me pain free and comfortable over the last 4 months and for that I will forever be grateful! I know I’m not the only patient he has but he sure made me feel like I was the only one. What a wonderful dr!!!! And the added bonus of course is his signature statement, his lovely Bow-ties!

Dr Aldridge repaired a ruptured distal biceps tendon in my arm. My surgery was more complex than originally expected. He handled it tremendously, which has allowed me to be able to recover better than I ever could have hoped. The care throughout the process was outstanding as was my overall experience throughout the process.

As an Injury prone athlete on the professional scale, I have seen a lot of emergeortho and they have taken great care of me every time. Dr. Wilson and Dr. Aldridge both have been amazing, and most recently he was able to schedule me an MRI in two days, read the results the same day and get me treatment that same day. Incredible service and very knowledgeable staff all around. They stay very safe, all covid precautions had been taken very seriously and it was an all around great experience. I would not look any further than right here with emergeortho. Dr. Aldridge was very well informed and made the experience very pleasant! Thank you guys!

I was very satisfied with my hand surgery. Dr. Aldridge did an excellent job. I would overwhelmingly recommend him to anyone requiring hand surgery.

Very comfortable with how treatment was handled and explained along with long term health care should be considered in my situation.

Everyone was very professional, attentive, and timely in examining and diagnosing my problem.

Each time I've been here I was seen quickly. The staff is friendly. The office is clean and covid careful. Dr Aldridge is friendly and kind. He explains things and listens to what you have to say. I highly recommend.

This was the best experience I’ve ever had pertaining to “health CARE”! The staff were accommodating, kind and made you feel like you were the only patient being cared for. There were always hello’s and smiles no matter what time of day my appointment was! Dr Aldridge was THE BEST! He looked at you when he specifically explained everything in detail about your appointment! I’d recommend Emerge Otho for ever and always for the most awesome healthcare experience! My only concern was, I didn’t see very many African American staff😉

I visited Dr Aldridge for a problem with my thumb. After getting an X-ray, Dr. Aldridge saw me and gave me a very thorough, easy to understand, explanation of my problem. He also discussed possible options with me. I found him very pleasant, professional and knowledgeable. I know other people who have see him and all were very satisfied. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Brian Wood, Dr. Aldridge’s PA did a fantastic emergency surgery on my finger. I have never seen such precision and care! He made me feel comfortable and cared for. When I came back for my checkup, and met Dr. Aldridge, I realized that these two men are fantastic at what they do and the best part of it is the love and concern they projected to me as their patient. They were calm and not rushed yet I knew they had a very busy schedule! God bless them both along with the awesome nurses who were so caring to me throughout both visits.

Dr Aldridge is a top notch hand specialist whom I trust wholeheartedly with treating my fairly severe Dupuytren’s contracture. He is very busy but always provides full attention during our visits. He has completed two hand surgeries for me and I couldn’t be happier with the results of both.

Excellent patient care with wonderful surgery results. I couldn't ask for anything better.

I waited very little at this appointment. Dr Aldrich greeted me by name and remembered details from past visits. A lot of Doctors don’t bother to review the chart before seeing the patient.

Dr Aldridge is the BEST ortho Dr in the world!!!! Not only does he sympathize with you but he empathizes with you!!!! He cares so much !!!! I requested a pink cast when I woke up from surgery but he told me unfortunately they didn’t have anything there at the surgery center but just plain ol white, HOWEVER, He went out of his way to make sure I had a pink cast when I woke up out of surgery!!! It put the biggest smile on my face and In my heart ! Now that is exceptional care!!!! And his post op care to me was phenomenal!!!! Truly the man is a gifted dr and he is walking in his calling!!! THANK YOU AGAIN for WONDERFUL CARE Dr Aldridge !!!!!

Very personable, great sense of humor. Answered all my questions. In short I had a very good visit.

Dr. Aldridge and staff were phenomenal at Durham Emerg Ortho. So thankful I was referred to them. Thank you De. Aldridge for taking the time to answer my questions and relieve my fears. Greatly appreciated.

His combination of expertise, personality and ability to clearly explain is a clear winner for me.

Emergorthcare is the only place I go for my orthopedic care, which is a lot! They have excellent doctors and staff. Very professional and very friendly.

Good experience with Dr Aldridge. Gave injection in elbow and discussed options. Very good Doctor...

He is the greatest. I would not let anyone give me shots in my hand Love him.

Aa great visit and relief for my finger.

Pleasantly surprised, after staying away from all medical facilities for months, it was a breeze. From check in to treatment, everyone was courteous and prompt. Successful visit and I would recommend Dr Aldridge.

At first I was very nervous not knowing what was going to happen with my visit. The facility was very clean and they followed the state guidelines for social distancing. The staff at EmergeOrtho was courteous and informative. I was most impressed with Dr. Aldridge because I had a lot of questions. Dr. Aldridge educated me on what was going with my hand injury. He was very patient with me and Dr. Aldridge advised he will need to inject cortizone in my hand. I lost my mind and started to panick. I am not a fan of needless. He suggested I should call someone to distract me while he administer the injection. While the injection hurt like hell, it didn't take long. He gave strict instructions. Too top it off I was very impressed with his wardrobe. I would recommend EmergeOrtho to everyone. Thank you for being patient with me.

Great doctor and staff. Took excellent care of me at all visits and during my surgery.

Great surgeon! Listens and addresses concerns. I highly recommended!!

Dr Aldridge is top notch! Great surgeon that listens to concerns and informs of all aspects of surgical procedure. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing hand surgery.

Dr.Aldridge was very professional and caring during my visit. I am so grateful for his care.

Awesome practice. Dr. Aldridge was very friendly and knowledgeable. We recommend anytime

Dr Aldridge was so incredibly helpful and saw the whole picture. Grateful for his expertise and will go back whenever needed.

I was very satisfied with my visit. I felt very comfortable with Dr Aldridge. He explained my condition thoroughly. He was engaged in my care. I would highly recommend him. I trusted him completely.

If you have an issue --- large or small --- Dr. Aldridge is the amelioration. Such a stupendous doctor!

Quick in and out service. Dr. Aldridge was pleasant and thorough in his questions and a good listener. He provided good information on how to heal “tennis elbow”.

Even with the virus protocol I was seen very quickly.

Dr. Aldridge was very through the in his exam and explanation. I felt comfortable with him performing the operation. All of his staff was the same level of competency and right there the whole time. His level of concern and aftercare wasvery much appreciated since mine was not a normal case.

With severe pain in left hand as well as pain in right hand, I received injections in both hands. Relief the next day was excellent progress. More healing to go, but excellent relief. Dr. Aldridge is excellent at explaining his diagnosis.

Awesome Dr. Very personal and caring and wants the best for his patient.Recomend him highly!

Probably the best experience I could have hoped for. Fast, efficient, thorough, detailed, caring, clean and safe, and very helpful in all respects. I left feeling really good about my injury and the care I was getting. Dr. Aldridge is a terrific specialist and caregiver, the staff was top notch and the facilities were very smartly organized, and spotless.

Excellent

Over the past 5 years I have been seeing Dr. Aldridge. First, Dr. Aldridge worked with me concerning a wrist problem that occurred due to multiple surgical procedures by another doctor that failed. Dr. Aldridge was patient and listened to my situation with great attention. He gave me some options to consider. It was a complicated situation and he discussed it with other colleagues in the field. Dr. Aldridge recommended a total wrist replacement. At the time, he had only done one other wrist replacement since it is generally not a common joint to replace. Dr. Aldridge explained in detail the surgical process and recovery. I will admit I was a bit nervous with all the pain I had suffered over the past twelve years and multiple surgical procedures that left me with no relief. I agreed to the procedure. This was in 2016 and I can honestly say I am basically pain free and able to use my arm and hand to do basically all the things I enjoy. Dr. Aldridge is an amazing person/doctor and truly cares for his patients. His bedside manners are excellent! In 2018, I started having severe pain in my thumb. I was use my thumb for any everyday activity without a tremendous amount of pain. I contacted Dr. Aldridge. After reviewing th X-rays, it was determined that the joint was being affected due to overuse and arthritis. We decided that at the time a conservative plan would be best. After a number of months of conservative therapy and limited relief from pain, we decided to do the thumb joint replacement. Dr. Aldridge was wonderful with helping me through the process. Everything went well! I was pleased and had tremendous pain relief. About 7 months after the surgery, I started having severe pain and unable to use my thumb. Dr. Aldridge was patient, kind, caring, and so understanding. After determining that the joint replacement was a failure (not due to Dr. Aldridge), Dr. Aldridge determined that the artificial joint needs to be removed after reviewing the results of the CT scan. The surgery went well. He has followed up with me and I am so pleased with the procedure Dr. Aldridge performed. I know this is a long review; however Dr. Aldridge is deserving of all the praise and gratitude I can give. He cares about his patients and what is going on in their lives. He has always listened to me and has never acted as if he did not have time to hear me out. Dr. Aldridge is passionate about his work and has the most compassionate heart for his patients. I highly recommend him to anyone having issues with their hands. Dr. Aldridge is a God send to the medical community! He is the best hand surgeon EVER!

Dr. Aldridge is the most passionate, compassionate, and caring hand surgeon! He is professional, explains procedures so that you totally understand, listens, always wants the best outcome and goes to any length to ensure that happens. Dr. Aldridge is not only an wonderful and gifted surgeon, he is also a kind and caring person! Fantastic bedside manners and always has a caring spirit! Dr. Aldridge is number ONE in my book! I highly recommend Dr. Aldridge in all areas of hand surgery! One amazing doctor and human being!!

Dr Aldridge was very good at asking the questions and listening. I have a lot of confidence and respect for him as my surgeon.

Knowledgeable, professional, punctual and never rushes through an appt

Dr. Aldridge has been my hand doctor for several years and is the best in the business, in my opinion. He is always very professional, but also makes you feel like you're a friend. The staff is always very polite and professional, and seen to genuinely care about your issue. I can't imagine going anywhere else for my orthopedic needs.

No long wait to see a Doctor. Everyone was helpful and the Doctor ( Dr. Aldridge ) was very thorough.

I was having severe pain in my hand that prevented me from being able to perform some of the functions required in my job, it even became painful to write and I was unable to workout at the gym. Dr. Aldridge ended up performing surgery on my arthritic thumb when other treatments were not effective. I am now back to work as an RN, back in school, and able to support enough weight on my hand to perform my prior workout routines. I can’t imagine what I would have done without Dr Aldridge, it would have been a very painful and limited life without the surgery. The whole team was always very friendly and professional, thank you so much for giving me my life back!

Dr. Aldridge explained my carpal tunnel diagnosis clearly. He went into the surgery in great detail, along with the post operation restrictions and recovery. I highly recommend him without reservation.

I have been seeing Dr Aldridge for about a year concerning carpal tunnel syndrome of my hand. He has explained in easy to understand language the details of each visit. I am looking forward to his performing carpal release surgery next month.

Dr.Mack is the very best. He understands my concerns and important the use my thumbs are to my golfing retirement. He will listen and actually respond respectfully to my concerns. One of the best down to earth Doctor I’ve ever had the pleasure to call my doctor!

Very professional and prompt didn’t have to wait very long at all

Dr Aldridge is a great Dr.

Don’t wait and call Dr. J. Mack Aldridge for an appointment to diagnose your hand pain!

Got me in and better same day

Dr. Aldridge fixed a 2 year old elbow injury preventing full movement. Quickly seen, imaged and given options. I was scheduled for surgery quickly, and the whole experience with EmergeOrtho and NC Specialty Hospital was great from start to now (2 weeks post surgery).

Dr. Aldridge fixed a 2 year old elbow injury, which prevented me from fully bending or extending the arm. I was quickly assessed, imaged, and given options. Feeling great at 2 weeks post-surgery. Knowledgeable and professional, overall I was extremely pleased with Dr. Aldridge and the staff at NC specialty hospital.

I love my doctor she is great Dr.Alves

This was my first time at EmergeOrtho and I was very pleased. After the initial check in I was taken to the examining room and the nurse asked me some questions as to why I was there. Dr. Aldridge came in less than 15 minutes later. Dr. ALDRIDGE was friendly, thorough, and explained everything in detail. He answered all my questions and didn’t rush out the door, as many doctors do these days. The office was clean and the waiting room spacious. (Even though we never had to wait there.) I would highly recommend Dr. Aldridge and will go back to him, if needed.

Dr. Aldridge is the best. I’m a retired nurse and he did surgery on my arm and did a great job. He is very personable. He spend the time you need. I traveled over two hour to see him and well worth every mile. Nc physician’s hospital great too. The best would recommend to anyone needing hand and arm ortho specialists. Staff at office pleasant and always helpful over past year. Thank you all.

I just had thumb surgery done by Dr. Aldridge. Prior to surgery he was very open about what to expect. He came to my room prior to surgery and assured me that all would work out. He was right for sure. He said that my hand was worse than he had thought but that he is sure that I will be pleased with the results. He listened well to my concerns and took my drug allergies seriously. Although he said that there would be a lot of pain after surgery, I assure you that Advil is more than enough to take away the edge.

I must extol Dr. Aldridge's bedside manner, concern, ability to listen well and to assure me that all would be fine. He paid attention to all my concerns and made sure that I was satisfied with his answers and care.

As always, compassionate, excellent care.

Wonderful Doctor and team. I am very happy with the results, the process, and the people who helped in my recovery.

I have seen Dr Aldridge twice regarding an issue with my wrist. Repetitive use of any part of the body can cause recurring problems that need to be addressed occasionally. Dr. Aldridge is a no-nonsense, efficient, and extremely knowledgeable individual. Great demeanor and personality. I might even bestow upon him the appellation of "perfect"!

Wonderful team and support. I was very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Aldridge and his staff. Six hours of surgery and my arm has been restored and improved. After a late surgery which went into the evening, he was back by my side in the hospital before 7:15 am to check on me and was genuinely supportive, professional, and kind. I am very thankful for him and the team.

I live in Wilmington, NC and chose to return to Emerge Ortho in Durham because I had a great surgical experience there five years earlier. I can’t praise enough my surgeon, Dr. Mack Aldridge, and the Physical Therapists he referred me to after surgery.

Dr. Aldrich is an excellent surgeon and has a very kind manner when interacting with patients. The office and clinical staff are also very kind, compassionate and extremely helpful. I am very happy that I chose EmergeOrtho-Durham for my hand surgery. Thank you.

Dr Aldridge performed surgery last January, replacing the large joint in my right thumb. I have found him to be a very caring doctor as well as a skilled surgeon. This was the second surgery he has done for me, and I would not go anywhere else for hand or wrist surgery. I am very pleased with the outcome of the surgeries.

Great doctor! My surgery and recovery were perfect. Professional, empathetic, expert at his profession. Highly recommend to anyone.

Professional and patient oriented. EmergeOrtho should consider their self fortunate for having him at there facility.

I am so thankful that someone recommended me to Dr. Aldridge. I recently had my finger broken very badly and he was able to save it. No doubt in my mind he did save it. I am beyond impressed with the outcome and the staff of this office. I would definitely not go anywhere else if I needed anything. Thank you for allowing me to keep being active and do all the things I was able to do with my right hand.

Fortunately, I was lucky enough to get Dr. Aldridge to do my wrist surgery. There is none better. Not only is he exceptionally competent and revered for his top-notch level of expertise, he genuinely cares for his patients. I happened to be at PT and he walked by BEHIND me so I did not see him. However, he saw me and came over to see how I was doing. HE took the initiative to do that and it meant a great deal to me that my surgeon went out of his way to speak to me and check on my progress. If you have hand/wrist needs, Dr. Aldridge is THE MAN!

Very detailed and consientious, Dr Aldridge is top notch.

Excellent job repairing my wrist. Great listener and took the time to honestly answer any questions I had pre & post op. Very pleased.

I had seen a good doctor at a local big hospital network who suggested a pretty big-time surgery after several unsuccessful treatments/approaches. It was significant enough to make me want to validate it with a second opinion. I had asked around and a friend had recommended EmergeOrtho (she had seen them for her shoulder injury). I also had a physical therapist friend who didn't work for them, but had also heard great things about their clinic and clinicians from within her healthcare circle of colleagues. I was able to get an appt with Dr. Mack Aldridge. He was incredible -- he patiently listened to me complain about my decreasing quality of life (seriously, I'm only 32 y/o and I was losing my ability to use my left arm b/c of a worsening wrist injury). He keenly spotted a missing puzzle piece to my diagnosis and re-routed my treatment plan. He was compassionate and thorough in his investigation into my case, and worked with his extensive network of colleagues (throughout the southeast region) to help craft an appropriate and clear plan of action. He was equally transparent with me about the risks and possible outcomes of the suggested surgery. Come surgery day, the operation staff in Durham was amazing. From the check-in administrative staff, to the pre-op nursing and sedation staff, to the post-op nurses...they were all incredible in helping ease my nerves (I get the white-coat syndrome pretty easily!). They were diligent in checking up on me post-op to ensure I was recovering properly. When I returned to see Dr. Aldridge, he also lined me up with a PT at EmergeOrtho (Nancy!), who was wonderful in showing me how to appropriately time my recover exercises. The staff, from administration to PAs to PTs, they're all wonderful and helped me solve my medical mystery with compassion, patience, and accuracy. They were a well-oiled machine and communicated very efficiently. If you're looking for ANY of the services EmergeOrtho offers, don't hesitate. They're offer a far, far better experience than those I've had at the large networks in the Triangle area.

I struggled with left hand/finger pain for a long time. I had 2 prior surgeries, performed by another physician, that just didn't seem to work. The pain was out of control. I have RA and OA. I had a left thumb fusion, left hand tight rope procedure, and reconstruction of non traumatic tendon rupture on my left index and middle finger. These 3 procedures were all done at the same time. Wish you could see before and after pictures. I am now 3 months post op and I could not be happier. Truthfully, when the cast came off after the first week I was happy and knew the surgery worked. I followed Dr. Aldridge's and OTs instructions to a tee. Scars look amazing. One you can hardly see any more. I will continue to follow my home therapy program until I am 100%. I have already recommended Dr. Aldridge to a neighbor. Dr. Aldridge, you are amazing, compassionate, caring and a true expert in your field. Thank you for giving me back my hand and the ability to do everyday tasks.

I struggled for 1 1/2 years with left hand pain. Had two previous surgeries by another physician. Dr. Aldridge is amazing. He is caring, compassionate, and honest. Has a terrific bedside manner.I am now 3 months post op and could not have hoped for a better outcome. I highly, highly recommend him!

Dr. Aldridge performed surgery for my Dupuytrens on my 71 yr old pinkie Dec 4. Now it is less than 3 months later and my finger is pain-free and and has more than than predicted range and mobility. And, amazingly, I have been virtually pain-free since 2 days after the surgery with Advil when needed the first couple weeks. Dr. A took the time in our initial exam and pre-op appointment to explain what he would be doing in just the right amount detail and what I could expect for the recovery.

I am a 60-year-old semi-pro musician (keyboard player) who has entrusted my left hand to Dr. Aldridge in 2011 and 2019 for Dupuytren’s contracture. Both times, Dr. Aldridge thoroughly reviewed the treatment options, gave his recommendation (surgery, in my case), and skillfully treated my hand. His professionalism and calm demeanor set me at ease, and both times I was delighted with the results. Dupuytren’s has a tendency to return. If it does, I’ll return to have Dr. Aldridge take care of it.

I am a 56 year old male with Dupuytren's contracture. Dr Aldridge provided a complete explanation of my condition and the options available for treatment. He and the staff at Emerge Ortho were professional, personal and displayed the empathy of a team that prides itself on quality care. I chose the surgical option to treat the cords in my right hand and nodule in the little finger. 4 weeks after the surgery, I could not be happier with the result.

I injured my right wrist at work in October of 2016 but x-rays didn't show the damage; I ended up working with broken bones and nothing but a brace for several months. My wrist kept getting worse, and after over a year of dealing with the pain I was referred to Dr. Aldridge. Within a few weeks of having surgery I had almost no pain in my wrist. The range of motion and functionality between my two arms is almost identical now. I highly recommend Dr. Aldridge to anyone with hand or wrist pain!

Dr Aldridge is excellent in every way. I consulted with him for my Dupuytren’s Contracture and his recommended course of treatment (injection and manipulation) was a complete success. His bedside manner and professionalism made me feel very comfortable and his staff were friendly and responsive. I would have no hesitation to return for his advice for any future hand related problem.

My experience with Dr Aldridge & his staff has been excellent. His advice on treatment for the problem with my hand was carefully explained and successfully resolved (though I look forward to more reduced swelling so that I can get my wedding ring back on!). His beside manner was professional but also very friendly. He spent more than sufficient time to explain everything in detail including what physical reactions to anticipate from the treatment. I would have no hesitation to return to Dr Aldridge or Emerge Ortho if needed in the future.

Dr Aldridge was the third hand Physician I consulted for my Dupuytren’s Contracture. His ability to share research, explain my condition, and aid me in selecting the best treatment. I received the xiaflex injection and the results were excellent. His bedside manner is comforting and professional. I am thankful for his outstanding care.

I am a 54 year old woman diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 20. I scheduled reconstructive surgery on my left hand with Dr. Aldridge because I was rapidly losing mobility and function due to profound, long-term damage and deformity. I am now 6 months post-surgery. I wish I could post a before and after picture here to dramatically support my review but trust me when I say the results are nothing short of miraculous. I have a new hand. And I have regained full mobility and function

I am forever grateful to Dr. Aldridge and plan to do my right hand in the coming year. He is not only a brilliant surgeon, but also considerate, on time, a good listener, and has good bedside manner. Hand surgeon...he's your guy. -lori vrba

Dr. Aldridge knows what he's doing. Great doctor. I've had a problem with my hand for 14 years now and today I was given hope, when honestly I was about to lose all hope. He is a great doctor, I'd recommend him to anyone. He is focused on solving the right problems.

I was scared and even though friends told me the experience good I was still apprehensive. Dr. Aldridge was kind and I went through the surgery effortless and absolutely no pain. He had given a prescription for pain if needed and I never needed it. He is very professional and kind. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Aldrich performed excellent surgery on distal radius fracture of my right arm. He is very professional and competent with an excellent bedside manner both in pre-op and post-op appointments, answering all questions and providing as much time as necessary for clear communication. Could not be more pleased with surgical outcome.

Dr. Aldridge was extremely competent in performing distal radius fracture surgery on right arm, and had excellent bedside manner in describing procedure in pre-op and follow-up discussions during post op appointments.

I was referred to Dr. Aldridge by my primary care physician. He diagnosed my severe arthritis in both hands and i was in severe pain without warning. His caring professional manner gave me great confidence from the beginning. He explained the surgical procedure in great detail and prepared me for the post-operative expectations and rehab exercises. Due to outstanding surgical skills, after only 60 days, I have full range of movement and minimal discomfort. I will be forever grateful!

He is a dedicated and caring professional who provided a thorough explanation of my surgery. Due to his outstanding surgical skills and after only sixty after surgery, I have full range of movement and minimal discomfort. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Aldridge.

Dr. Aldridge performed two surgeries on both hands, with three incisions per hand. He did a carpal tunnel release and replaced the first carpometacarpal joint in both thumbs with a tendon from my wrists. Even days after each surgery, I had less pain in the hand than the week before the surgery. At only 7 months from my right hand surgery, all my incisions are virtually invisible. I can open jars bare-handed. I am able to do any activity I wish without constant pain in my hands.

By the time Dr. Julian Mack Aldridge performed surgery on my hands, I had experienced years of increasingly painful arthritis, 4 years of painful shots that gradually stopped helping, and wore custom night splints on both hands. I could no longer open jars, and typed with increasing pain. My hands hurt all the time. Even swimming was painful. Dr. Aldridge performed two surgeries on both hands, with three incisions per hand. He did a carpal tunnel release and replaced the first carpometacarpal joint in both thumbs with a tendon from my wrists. Both thumb joints had deteriorated from arthritis due to separate accidents and overuse. The surgery exceeded my expectations for success in every possible way. Even days after each surgery, I had less pain in the hand than the week before the surgery. He did my dominant right hand first. I was 2 weeks in a soft cast, 4 weeks in short hard cast, and 3 months in a thumb joint splint. At 91 days, he did the exact same surgeries on my left hand with the same time frames for casts and 1 month for the splint. I continue to do Occupational Therapy exercises with good results and no pain. At this writing, I am less than 7 months from my first surgery. All 6 of my incisions are virtually invisible. I can open jars bare-handed. I am able to do any activity I wish, from gardening to swimming to typing for hours, with no pain. Dr. Aldridge set me free from the constant and worsening pain, and gave me back the enjoyment of my normal daily activities.

After being a licensed RN and practicing for 50 years in various healthcare in- and out-patient settings, and other than two childbirth admissions, I had my first personal hospitalization experience in 2017. Dr. Aldridge as my hand/wrist surgeon, and all the Durham office and NC Specialty Hospital staff, including front desk/admissions and licensed staff provided the highest level of care and professionalism, always assuring education understood and that both my spouse and I felt their support.

In and out with efficient, thorough care. Great beside manner. Will definitely return and refer.

I had been told by "the best" at Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem that my hand would never get better. My left thumb was basically useless after a series of surgeries to combat a serious infection. Dr. Aldridge dd not agree and after 2 more surgeries that he performed I have extensive use of my left thumb! He restored my quality of life!

When I was referred to Dr. Aldridge in December, I had significant pain and diminished movement in my wrist following a fracture seven months before. During that time, I was receiving treatment from another orthopedist. Just before my first appointment with Dr. Aldridge, I had been told my condition may never improve. Dr. Aldridge proved that to be incorrect. My pain is gone; movement has been restored. His plan of treatment, including that of my OT, has had miraculous results. I am so grateful for his caring expertise.

Dr. Aldridge is a fantastic doctor. He performed a complicated procedure on my Daughters elbow with amazing results.

Learn more Dr. Aldridge is an exceptionally skilled hand surgeon and also an exceptional human being. It is clear how much he cares about his patients, and is very responsive to their concerns. The surgery went extremely well with no complications. I highly recommend him.

Kudos to Dr. Aldridge and support team for making life much easier in my backpacking hobby. My wrist is pain free and continues to improve after a lot of self inflicted abuse. Hope I don't have to come back but will certainly know who to look for if I have problems with the other wrist!

Outstanding Doctor! He explained all procedures in a friendly manner. Always had time for the patient. Had Carpal Tunnel surgery on both hands. Eight months later, no problems whatsoever! I can highly recommend him as a surgeon!

Dr. Aldridge and his staff are excellent. I was seen quickly every time I visited his office. My surgery went excellent. Dr. Aldridge takes the time to talk and listen so that I understood everything. I pray I never need an Ortho Dr. again but if I do, Dr. Aldridge will be my first choice. I drove 150 miles one way just to see him and it was definitely worth it.

I had a tumor located in my elbow area of my arm. Dr. Aldridge and his staff are excellent and very approachable. I have nothing but rave reviews for my surgery and office visits. Thank you.

Dr Aldridge literally saved my elbow. In Oct 2015, was in a scooter accident in Croatia which resulted in a broken olecranon and large open wound. Received stitches overseas and two surgeries (by a different Ortho) in the US. My elbow was frozen. A few months later I found myself in Dr. Abridges office asking if he could help me. He did! He released my elbow and transposed my ulnar nerve. Huge success. I've regained my motion and strength and am back to doing the sport of triathlon.

Dr. Aldridge is first class. He is professional and good humored, definitely not a dictator like most doctors. I would definitely go to him again and find his staff to be terrific as well. The procedure he did on me is one I have been avoiding for 5 years. Frankly I never really understood this issue until I saw Dr. Aldridge and better understood. His demeanor conveys a real level of trust and his honesty is refreshing. I would recommend him highly.

Very knowledgable and courteous

I waited for many years to have my carpal tunnel surgery, thinking that I could heal my wrists without help. Because I depend on my hands for very fine craftsmanship in my artwork, I was fearful. I discovered Dr. Aldridge, an excellent and concerned doctor, and a surgeon of great precision. He included me in every aspect of my successful procedures and consequent healing. I am so thrilled to once again have two healthy and strong hands. I was actually back in my studio right away. Miraculous!

First class from start to finish. All staff members are sincerely interested in the patients well being.

Combine God given talent and a most pleasing personality; add excellent training and place in a setting where the culture is patient first...result is near perfect medical care. Thank you so much for what you did for me.

Dr. Aldridge was amazing to work with. He was very thorough with answers to any questions I had. He and the whole staff at Triangle Orthopaedic were great to work with. I would highly recommend him.

We were referred to Dr. Aldridge and his practice from our current orthopedic surgeon who said my son needed to see a hand / wrist specialist because of the extent of his injury. He told us Dr. Aldridge was the best and who he would choose if he needed this surgery for himself or one of his children. We had complete faith that he would never steer us in the wrong direction so we made an appointment to see Dr. Aldridge. Upon meeting him we knew immediately he would be perfect for our son. He made you feel comfortable when meeting him, never rushes through an appointment, and sincerely wants to do what is in the patient’s best interest. He listens and thoughtfully takes his time to answer any questions or concerns. Remarkable as it sounds, he even called our house on a holiday weekend to check on my son. We have seen Dr. Aldridge several times over the last year and when you see a Dr. that often and he continues to meet and exceed your expectations you know this is the pattern not the exception. When Dr. Aldridge is with you in the room you feel as if you are the only patient he is seeing that day. Through my son’s 3 surgeries over the past year, we have worked with the rest of his team and they are professional, efficient and very caring. His assistant, Sana, has made emergency appointments, called me in the evening, and personally relayed my questions to Dr. Aldridge. When they say they will call you back the same day, they always do. The timely follow-up is how you hope every doctor’s office would operate but the reality is Triangle Orthopedics seems to be unique. Dr. Aldridge’s PA, Brian, who you see for pre op appointments is very precise with what to expect since Dr. Aldridge has reviewed in detail the upcoming surgical procedure. Dr. Aldridge has also taken the time to get to know my son not just as a patient but on a personal level. It has made all the difference because my son admires and respects Dr. Aldridge and follows his instructions to the letter. They work tougher as a team. Dr. Aldridge has gone out of his way to work around my son’s athletic and school schedule and schedules the surgeries that will best meet his needs. When it comes to your children you want the best possible doctor and the best possible outcome for them and it can be stressful but if you need to see a Dr. for a hand or wrist injury I give Dr. Aldridge the highest vote of confidence. I can personally say that you will be happy and thankful that you had the privilege of working with Dr. Aldridge and his team.

Dr. Aldridge is a personable, gentle, knowlegable physician who is an excellent sugeon from my experience with him. He knows his area of expertise well and can prepare you for the likely outcome of pain levels, when things will improve and how to manage if your pain is beyond your tolerance. As a mental health therapist, I recognize a person who is caring and kind. He has those personal qualities as well as a love of his chosen area of hand surgery. Once when he was delayed, he told me in general terms the incident that delayed him. I highly recommend him and am glad to have found him for my joint which was "shot." I look forward to having use of my hand back and will return to him for repair of the other hand at a later time.

Seriously, a very good and compassionate doctor. I highly recommend him.

I have AVN he did both my graft surgeries. He is excellent I would recommend him to anyone who needs his expert care. His bedside manner is impecable, his office staff is caring and knowledgeable. He also calls you at home to make sure you are ok, and YES HE CALLS no stafff. With his busy schedule HE IS ONE OF THE BEST DRS I KNOW THANKS DOC !!!!!!!!!! You're awesome!

Evelyn

I had a wrist fracture which Dr. Aldridge said was one of the worst he had seen. The radius was rotated and splintered and required a plate and lots of pegs and wires to stabilize it. Although wrist fractures can take up to a year to heal, he told me I can expect to return to normal function. I am grateful for his skill in repairing it. On rechecks he was very supportive and assured me that healing was proceeding well. At three months post-op I am able to do most of my daily activities without pain.

Dr. Aldridge and staff were very considerate and patient with my concerns. He explained each step as he treated me.

Dr. Aldridge provided excellent care to my son after he broke his arm. Two surgeries for a 10 year old could have been a scary process. Dr. Aldridge was thoughtful and informative.

Kathy Glenn

Went to see Dr Aldridge because of the inability to close my left hand! As always he knew exactly what was and after he injected the joint l, I can use my hand again like normal! If you have any type of hand issue I whole heartily recommend him and Emerge Ortho!

Deborah Christie

Dr. Aldridge, who specializes in hand surgery, is an unusually good listener and communicator. Excellent diagnostician. Attentive to surgery alternatives for carpal tunnel issues and paresthesia (numbness). To transfer Duke records, ask for Powershare request from Emergortho to Duke.

YuriTrjs

Choosing Dr. Aldridge was the best decision I could have made. I came into his office with a non union scaphoid. It was broken months earlier in a motorcycle crash and failed to heal. Dr. Aldridge was able to surgically repair the break, and I saw healing milestones weeks ahead of schedule! I could not be more grateful to Dr. Aldridge and his team at Emergeortho!

Ginger Hawkins

Dr. Mack Aldridge did my surgery when I broke my wrist 8 years so when I broke my other wrist, I was very happy Dr. Aldridge was available to do my surgery again. He is extremely kind & professional.

James Waddell

Efficient, attentive and professional service with great insight.

Vitals Guest

I saw Dr. Aldridge for evaluation and repair of nerve damage to my hand as a result of an accident. At every stage of evaluation and treatment Dr. Aldridge displayed consummate professionalism complemented by sincere concern for my problem and achieving the best result. Every examination was deliberate and thorough, containing detailed explanations of findings and plans for treatment. The resultant microsurgery expertly performed by Dr. Aldridge consisted of seven nerve grafts in my hand. Subsequent recovery followed exactly as Dr. Aldridge had predicted prior to surgery. Follow up appointments over the twelve month recovery period were detailed and informative with all my questions promptly answered. Recently released, I firmly believe Dr. Aldridge achieved the best result possible considering my injury. Dr. Aldridge is the epitome of what any physician should be. While obviously highly educated and well trained, he also exhibits a “beside manner” which puts any patient immediately at ease, inspiring confidence that he truly cares about your care and treatment. It’s obvious from his curriculum vitae that he is at the top of his field, a fact I can verify after being his patient. Quite simply, Dr. Aldridge is the best. I most highly recommend him to anyone looking for a hand surgeon.

Donna H

Very easy to get an appointment. Dr. Aldridge is the best! Very competent, friendly, explains everything. I moved out of the area but still came back to see him.

Al Rivers

Easy in and out and Dr Aldridge understands hands and is really good at what he does. He operated on both my hands 10 or more years ago and until now no problems. The shots that I received on this trip seem to be working. Thank you Dr Aldridge

Joel Adler

Very professional organization and personnel!

Dennis Franzen

The staff was very welcoming once I walked through the doors. The smiles from the receptionist to the Dr aid. The Dr aid was very sincere in her caring and respectful to this senior citizen. The facility was very clean and I must say the decor was pleasing and soft to the eyes.

Teresa Lamm Gupton

I had an appointment with Dr Alridge about numbness and aching in my hands. He examined my hands and then scheduled me for some testing so he could make a more accurate assessment. After the testing I met with Dr Alridge again. He explained the test results to me thoroughly and gave me the options. Dr Alridge gave me a cortisone shot and we will see how this works. He was very thorough and explained everything to me well. I felt very comfortable with Dr Alridge and his diagnosis. He is very friendly and takes his time and does not rush. I trust Dr Alridge and would highly recommend him and his staff. 😊😊😊🤩🤩🤩

Fred Stoppelkamp

Major elbow surgery from mountain bike crash. Was back on bike at 80% in 2.5 months Amazing !

Sue Padgett

Dr. Aldridge was so kind, and he explained just what was causing my pain and discomfort that are continuing from a surgery on mt right hand that had been performed by another doctor months ago. He discussed my options with me at length, and then provided the least invasive treatment. After months of pain, I have finally been given some relief. More importantly, I have been given hope that my pain will soon end. I am so thankful that my friend told me about Dr. Aldridge. What a blessing and an answer to my prayers!!! I highly recommend Dr. Aldridge!

Glenn Aldridge

Very successful visit, Dr. Aldridge impressed me as very professional, as I had already heard. We feel blessed to be sent to EmergeOrtho by Dr. Miller of your Burlington facility, being first forwarded to him by my dermatologist, Dr. Kowalski. Dr. Wilson, we were more than impressed by and his results and professional skills couldn't be better. Please don't think this to be a butter up. You folks have blessed up us and deserve the highest marks. THANK YOU !! Glenn S. Aldridge

Dr Aldridge was friendly, professional and thorough. He answered all my questions in a patient manner. He explained in detail what was going on in my hands. I would definitely go back to him.

Vitals Guest

During my consultation with Dr. Aldridge for a broken scaphoid, he laid out detailed options for treatment, gave me his professional recommendation, and then allowed me the space and time to decide for myself which treatment to pursue, which I greatly appreciated. I opted for surgery (open reduction internal fixation) and Dr. Aldridge scheduled my operation within a few days. Several weeks of recovery and periodic check-ups later, my scaphoid bone has completely healed with no complications, and my wrist has almost returned to full range of motion with the help of guided physical therapy. To conclude, Dr. Aldridge and his staff (from reception to x-ray to surgery and everything in-between) are skilled, courteous, friendly, and exactly who I needed to recover from my broken wrist in a timely and pleasant manner. Thank you!

kurt

I am very happy I went to Dr. Aldridge.I thought my hand issues were just a product of overuse and old age.Diagnosing me with dupuytren's contracture.Treating me first with XIAFLEX and then minor surgery My hands are back doing things I haven't been able to do in years.Very happy with the outcome!

Vitals Guest

Having worked with my hands my entire life losing function ,I thought was just something that happened with age.I am glad I went to Dr Aldridge.The Dupuytren's contracture had made it difficult to do many simple things as holding a cup of coffee .After treatment I am back to doing all the things I have wanted to do for years but never having the time.Made my retirement much more rewarding

Ruby Parker

Dr. Aldridge has been my orthopaedic hand surgeon for 20 years. He had helped me tremendously. Having had rheumatoid arthritis since 1982, I am amazed at the helpful treatment Dr. Aldridge has given me and I am very functional. My last visit regarded pain in both wrists. He administered cortisone shots and I am already feeling better, even the next day.

I went to EmergeOrtho-Durham yesterday on June 7th. I was experiencing numbness on my fingers with my left hand. Had a appointment with Dr. Aldridge. My 1st time seeing him. He was very professional explaining all options. He was very polite, and very knowledgeable.

Vitals Guest

My experience seeing Dr. Aldridge could not be more positive. The facility is well-laid-out, and all the tests I needed were performed on-site. The staff was friendly and efficient. I was seen very quickly and everyone complied with necessary social distancing. Dr. Aldridge was a pleasure to meet. He was professional and quite friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Aldridge and the practice to anyone requiring care for an orthopedic problem.

Dee Dee

Outstanding doctor! I’ve seen several specialists for a long-standing arthritic problem with my hands. For the first time I have confidence that I’ve got a good treatment plan and a positive prognosis.

Kathy Tyndall

Dr. Aldridge is a wonderful doctor! He explains everything thoroughly, has a delightful personality, and is an excellent surgeon. I am grateful for such a kind, highly competent, caring physician.

Patty Slaughter

I have been seeing Dr. Aldridge for about 5 years. If you are looking for a good doctor it’s him. He listens to your needs and answers all your question. The thing I like the most is he does not rush through your appointment it’s like 2 friends just talking. His staff is also very kind and caring. His office runs so smooth it makes me feel very comfortable being there. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in his field of medicine. But most of all a good man. Working in the medical field for many years I have very high standards of a good physician and he rates top of my list. The office it’s self is very neat and clean. When it came time to do my injections they were ready, tray properly organized and sanitary. So if you are are in need of not a Good Hand man, the Best is Dr. Aldridge.

I received excellent care under Dr Aldridge and his staff throughout my wrist surgery and follow-up therapy sessions. I could not have asked for a better overall experience.

Dr. Aldridge did surgery on my hand. From start to finish the process was carefully thought-out and organized. He is knowledgeable, caring, and a delight to work with. I found every step of the procedure designed to ease any concerns I had; the results were exactly as I had hoped, and I expect a full recovery of function in the near future.

Vitals Guest

Dr. Aldridge was amazing from start to finish- from cortisone injections to advisement, to surgery, to recovery! I could not have asked for a more caring, capable, and thorough physician. I have had over 15 surgeries in my long life and Dr. Aldridge rates at the top of all surgeons I have dealt with!

Naomi

I was invited to leave a review for my FAVORITE dr because of National Drs Day that is coming up and of course the BEST AND ONLY Dr who deserves this review is my man Dr Aldridge! Thanks Dr Aldridge for using your gift and making this world a better place!!!

Laura Hanes

Dr Aldridge has done several procedures on my hands and has done an amazing job each time. He and his staff are very through and knowledgeable, as well as having great senses of humor. I had to have a finger and part of my hand amputated and he did such an outstanding job (after doing everything he could to save my finger) that it is very hard to tell that I only have 9 fingers. Most people do not notice at all. I have referred several people to him and all have had extraordinary results. I highly recommend him!

Vitals Guest

Dr. Aldridge gave me excellent care for my broken wrist and subsequent surgery. I can highly recommend him for not only his competence, but good humor, and caring demeanor. Dr. Aldridge did a great job of explaining the procedure and assuring me of a good recovery. His PA and staff were also great. I would strongly recommend him for anyone with hand and wrist concerns.

Ken

I would like to thank Dr Aldridge, as well as Emerge Ortho and NC Specialty Hospital for a great experience during my Distal Bicep Tendon Rupture Surgery. It seems odd to be saying that surgery was a great experience, but it was, aside from the injury and recovery, a very positive experience. Dr Aldridge is clear, concise and spends the time necessary to explain everything in a way that is easily understandable, and, of course, an excellent surgeon. I couldn't have asked for a more positive experience. Thank you Dr Aldridge.

Dr Aldridge has left a most impressive impression on me and I will never forget all he did for me! He may have fixed my hand but he left his footprint in my heart! He truly helped me with the same consistent compassion for 4 months. He never ever made me feel like I was a bother or that my pain and feelings weren’t real. He always believed me and tried his best to make me pain free and comfortable over the last 4 months and for that I will forever be grateful! I know I’m not the only patient he has but he sure made me feel like I was the only one. What a wonderful dr!!!! And the added bonus of course is his signature statement, his lovely Bow-ties!

Dr Aldridge repaired a ruptured distal biceps tendon in my arm. My surgery was more complex than originally expected. He handled it tremendously, which has allowed me to be able to recover better than I ever could have hoped. The care throughout the process was outstanding as was my overall experience throughout the process.

As an Injury prone athlete on the professional scale, I have seen a lot of emergeortho and they have taken great care of me every time. Dr. Wilson and Dr. Aldridge both have been amazing, and most recently he was able to schedule me an MRI in two days, read the results the same day and get me treatment that same day. Incredible service and very knowledgeable staff all around. They stay very safe, all covid precautions had been taken very seriously and it was an all around great experience. I would not look any further than right here with emergeortho. Dr. Aldridge was very well informed and made the experience very pleasant! Thank you guys!

I was very satisfied with my hand surgery. Dr. Aldridge did an excellent job. I would overwhelmingly recommend him to anyone requiring hand surgery.

This was the best experience I’ve ever had pertaining to “health CARE”! The staff were accommodating, kind and made you feel like you were the only patient being cared for. There were always hello’s and smiles no matter what time of day my appointment was! Dr Aldridge was THE BEST! He looked at you when he specifically explained everything in detail about your appointment! I’d recommend Emerge Otho for ever and always for the most awesome healthcare experience! My only concern was, I didn’t see very many African American staff😉

Phyllis

I visited Dr Aldridge for a problem with my thumb. After getting an X-ray, Dr. Aldridge saw me and gave me a very thorough, easy to understand, explanation of my problem. He also discussed possible options with me. I found him very pleasant, professional and knowledgeable. I know other people who have see him and all were very satisfied. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Faith Kurdi

Brian Wood, Dr. Aldridge’s PA did a fantastic emergency surgery on my finger. I have never seen such precision and care! He made me feel comfortable and cared for. When I came back for my checkup, and met Dr. Aldridge, I realized that these two men are fantastic at what they do and the best part of it is the love and concern they projected to me as their patient. They were calm and not rushed yet I knew they had a very busy schedule! God bless them both along with the awesome nurses who were so caring to me throughout both visits.

Dr Aldridge is a top notch hand specialist whom I trust wholeheartedly with treating my fairly severe Dupuytren’s contracture. He is very busy but always provides full attention during our visits. He has completed two hand surgeries for me and I couldn’t be happier with the results of both.

Patricia Borton

Excellent patient care with wonderful surgery results. I couldn't ask for anything better.

Hal Mekeel

I waited very little at this appointment. Dr Aldrich greeted me by name and remembered details from past visits. A lot of Doctors don’t bother to review the chart before seeing the patient.

naomi inman

Dr Aldridge is the BEST ortho Dr in the world!!!! Not only does he sympathize with you but he empathizes with you!!!! He cares so much !!!! I requested a pink cast when I woke up from surgery but he told me unfortunately they didn’t have anything there at the surgery center but just plain ol white, HOWEVER, He went out of his way to make sure I had a pink cast when I woke up out of surgery!!! It put the biggest smile on my face and In my heart ! Now that is exceptional care!!!! And his post op care to me was phenomenal!!!! Truly the man is a gifted dr and he is walking in his calling!!! THANK YOU AGAIN for WONDERFUL CARE Dr Aldridge !!!!!

Pleasantly surprised, after staying away from all medical facilities for months, it was a breeze. From check in to treatment, everyone was courteous and prompt. Successful visit and I would recommend Dr Aldridge.

At first I was very nervous not knowing what was going to happen with my visit. The facility was very clean and they followed the state guidelines for social distancing. The staff at EmergeOrtho was courteous and informative. I was most impressed with Dr. Aldridge because I had a lot of questions. Dr. Aldridge educated me on what was going with my hand injury. He was very patient with me and Dr. Aldridge advised he will need to inject cortizone in my hand. I lost my mind and started to panick. I am not a fan of needless. He suggested I should call someone to distract me while he administer the injection. While the injection hurt like hell, it didn't take long. He gave strict instructions. Too top it off I was very impressed with his wardrobe. I would recommend EmergeOrtho to everyone. Thank you for being patient with me.

Vitals Guest

Over the past 5 years I have been seeing Dr. Aldridge. First, Dr. Aldridge worked with me concerning a wrist problem that occurred due to multiple surgical procedures by another doctor that failed. Dr. Aldridge was patient and listened to my situation with great attention. He gave me some options to consider. It was a complicated situation and he discussed it with other colleagues in the field. Dr. Aldridge recommended a total wrist replacement. At the time, he had only done one other wrist replacement since it is generally not a common joint to replace. Dr. Aldridge explained in detail the surgical process and recovery. I will admit I was a bit nervous with all the pain I had suffered over the past twelve years and multiple surgical procedures that left me with no relief. I agreed to the procedure. This was in 2016 and I can honestly say I am basically pain free and able to use my arm and hand to do basically all the things I enjoy. Dr. Aldridge is an amazing person/doctor and truly cares for his patients. His bedside manners are excellent! In 2018, I started having severe pain in my thumb. I was use my thumb for any everyday activity without a tremendous amount of pain. I contacted Dr. Aldridge. After reviewing th X-rays, it was determined that the joint was being affected due to overuse and arthritis. We decided that at the time a conservative plan would be best. After a number of months of conservative therapy and limited relief from pain, we decided to do the thumb joint replacement. Dr. Aldridge was wonderful with helping me through the process. Everything went well! I was pleased and had tremendous pain relief. About 7 months after the surgery, I started having severe pain and unable to use my thumb. Dr. Aldridge was patient, kind, caring, and so understanding. After determining that the joint replacement was a failure (not due to Dr. Aldridge), Dr. Aldridge determined that the artificial joint needs to be removed after reviewing the results of the CT scan. The surgery went well. He has followed up with me and I am so pleased with the procedure Dr. Aldridge performed. I know this is a long review; however Dr. Aldridge is deserving of all the praise and gratitude I can give. He cares about his patients and what is going on in their lives. He has always listened to me and has never acted as if he did not have time to hear me out. Dr. Aldridge is passionate about his work and has the most compassionate heart for his patients. I highly recommend him to anyone having issues with their hands. Dr. Aldridge is a God send to the medical community! He is the best hand surgeon EVER!

Ellyn Lupton

Dr. Aldridge is the most passionate, compassionate, and caring hand surgeon! He is professional, explains procedures so that you totally understand, listens, always wants the best outcome and goes to any length to ensure that happens. Dr. Aldridge is not only an wonderful and gifted surgeon, he is also a kind and caring person! Fantastic bedside manners and always has a caring spirit! Dr. Aldridge is number ONE in my book! I highly recommend Dr. Aldridge in all areas of hand surgery! One amazing doctor and human being!!

Dr. Aldridge has been my hand doctor for several years and is the best in the business, in my opinion. He is always very professional, but also makes you feel like you're a friend. The staff is always very polite and professional, and seen to genuinely care about your issue. I can't imagine going anywhere else for my orthopedic needs.

No long wait to see a Doctor. Everyone was helpful and the Doctor ( Dr. Aldridge ) was very thorough.

Sandy Ramm

I was having severe pain in my hand that prevented me from being able to perform some of the functions required in my job, it even became painful to write and I was unable to workout at the gym. Dr. Aldridge ended up performing surgery on my arthritic thumb when other treatments were not effective. I am now back to work as an RN, back in school, and able to support enough weight on my hand to perform my prior workout routines. I can’t imagine what I would have done without Dr Aldridge, it would have been a very painful and limited life without the surgery. The whole team was always very friendly and professional, thank you so much for giving me my life back!

This was my first time at EmergeOrtho and I was very pleased. After the initial check in I was taken to the examining room and the nurse asked me some questions as to why I was there. Dr. Aldridge came in less than 15 minutes later. Dr. ALDRIDGE was friendly, thorough, and explained everything in detail. He answered all my questions and didn’t rush out the door, as many doctors do these days. The office was clean and the waiting room spacious. (Even though we never had to wait there.) I would highly recommend Dr. Aldridge and will go back to him, if needed.

Candace Caputo

Dr. Aldridge is the best. I’m a retired nurse and he did surgery on my arm and did a great job. He is very personable. He spend the time you need. I traveled over two hour to see him and well worth every mile. Nc physician’s hospital great too. The best would recommend to anyone needing hand and arm ortho specialists. Staff at office pleasant and always helpful over past year. Thank you all.

Reviewer

I just had thumb surgery done by Dr. Aldridge. Prior to surgery he was very open about what to expect. He came to my room prior to surgery and assured me that all would work out. He was right for sure. He said that my hand was worse than he had thought but that he is sure that I will be pleased with the results. He listened well to my concerns and took my drug allergies seriously. Although he said that there would be a lot of pain after surgery, I assure you that Advil is more than enough to take away the edge.

Wonderful team and support. I was very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Aldridge and his staff. Six hours of surgery and my arm has been restored and improved. After a late surgery which went into the evening, he was back by my side in the hospital before 7:15 am to check on me and was genuinely supportive, professional, and kind. I am very thankful for him and the team.

Fortunately, I was lucky enough to get Dr. Aldridge to do my wrist surgery. There is none better. Not only is he exceptionally competent and revered for his top-notch level of expertise, he genuinely cares for his patients. I happened to be at PT and he walked by BEHIND me so I did not see him. However, he saw me and came over to see how I was doing. HE took the initiative to do that and it meant a great deal to me that my surgeon went out of his way to speak to me and check on my progress. If you have hand/wrist needs, Dr. Aldridge is THE MAN!

Excellent job repairing my wrist. Great listener and took the time to honestly answer any questions I had pre & post op. Very pleased.

Stephany Pritchard

I had seen a good doctor at a local big hospital network who suggested a pretty big-time surgery after several unsuccessful treatments/approaches. It was significant enough to make me want to validate it with a second opinion. I had asked around and a friend had recommended EmergeOrtho (she had seen them for her shoulder injury). I also had a physical therapist friend who didn't work for them, but had also heard great things about their clinic and clinicians from within her healthcare circle of colleagues. I was able to get an appt with Dr. Mack Aldridge. He was incredible -- he patiently listened to me complain about my decreasing quality of life (seriously, I'm only 32 y/o and I was losing my ability to use my left arm b/c of a worsening wrist injury). He keenly spotted a missing puzzle piece to my diagnosis and re-routed my treatment plan. He was compassionate and thorough in his investigation into my case, and worked with his extensive network of colleagues (throughout the southeast region) to help craft an appropriate and clear plan of action. He was equally transparent with me about the risks and possible outcomes of the suggested surgery. Come surgery day, the operation staff in Durham was amazing. From the check-in administrative staff, to the pre-op nursing and sedation staff, to the post-op nurses...they were all incredible in helping ease my nerves (I get the white-coat syndrome pretty easily!). They were diligent in checking up on me post-op to ensure I was recovering properly. When I returned to see Dr. Aldridge, he also lined me up with a PT at EmergeOrtho (Nancy!), who was wonderful in showing me how to appropriately time my recover exercises. The staff, from administration to PAs to PTs, they're all wonderful and helped me solve my medical mystery with compassion, patience, and accuracy. They were a well-oiled machine and communicated very efficiently. If you're looking for ANY of the services EmergeOrtho offers, don't hesitate. They're offer a far, far better experience than those I've had at the large networks in the Triangle area.

I struggled with left hand/finger pain for a long time. I had 2 prior surgeries, performed by another physician, that just didn't seem to work. The pain was out of control. I have RA and OA. I had a left thumb fusion, left hand tight rope procedure, and reconstruction of non traumatic tendon rupture on my left index and middle finger. These 3 procedures were all done at the same time. Wish you could see before and after pictures. I am now 3 months post op and I could not be happier. Truthfully, when the cast came off after the first week I was happy and knew the surgery worked. I followed Dr. Aldridge's and OTs instructions to a tee. Scars look amazing. One you can hardly see any more. I will continue to follow my home therapy program until I am 100%. I have already recommended Dr. Aldridge to a neighbor. Dr. Aldridge, you are amazing, compassionate, caring and a true expert in your field. Thank you for giving me back my hand and the ability to do everyday tasks.

Dr. Aldridge performed surgery for my Dupuytrens on my 71 yr old pinkie Dec 4. Now it is less than 3 months later and my finger is pain-free and and has more than than predicted range and mobility. And, amazingly, I have been virtually pain-free since 2 days after the surgery with Advil when needed the first couple weeks. Dr. A took the time in our initial exam and pre-op appointment to explain what he would be doing in just the right amount detail and what I could expect for the recovery.

Don McCray

I am a 60-year-old semi-pro musician (keyboard player) who has entrusted my left hand to Dr. Aldridge in 2011 and 2019 for Dupuytren’s contracture. Both times, Dr. Aldridge thoroughly reviewed the treatment options, gave his recommendation (surgery, in my case), and skillfully treated my hand. His professionalism and calm demeanor set me at ease, and both times I was delighted with the results. Dupuytren’s has a tendency to return. If it does, I’ll return to have Dr. Aldridge take care of it.

David McKeon

I am a 56 year old male with Dupuytren's contracture. Dr Aldridge provided a complete explanation of my condition and the options available for treatment. He and the staff at Emerge Ortho were professional, personal and displayed the empathy of a team that prides itself on quality care. I chose the surgical option to treat the cords in my right hand and nodule in the little finger. 4 weeks after the surgery, I could not be happier with the result.

Nancy Chambers

I injured my right wrist at work in October of 2016 but x-rays didn't show the damage; I ended up working with broken bones and nothing but a brace for several months. My wrist kept getting worse, and after over a year of dealing with the pain I was referred to Dr. Aldridge. Within a few weeks of having surgery I had almost no pain in my wrist. The range of motion and functionality between my two arms is almost identical now. I highly recommend Dr. Aldridge to anyone with hand or wrist pain!

donaldholzworth

Dr Aldridge is excellent in every way. I consulted with him for my Dupuytren’s Contracture and his recommended course of treatment (injection and manipulation) was a complete success. His bedside manner and professionalism made me feel very comfortable and his staff were friendly and responsive. I would have no hesitation to return for his advice for any future hand related problem.

My experience with Dr Aldridge & his staff has been excellent. His advice on treatment for the problem with my hand was carefully explained and successfully resolved (though I look forward to more reduced swelling so that I can get my wedding ring back on!). His beside manner was professional but also very friendly. He spent more than sufficient time to explain everything in detail including what physical reactions to anticipate from the treatment. I would have no hesitation to return to Dr Aldridge or Emerge Ortho if needed in the future.

Dr Aldridge was the third hand Physician I consulted for my Dupuytren’s Contracture. His ability to share research, explain my condition, and aid me in selecting the best treatment.

I was scared and even though friends told me the experience good I was still apprehensive. Dr. Aldridge was kind and I went through the surgery effortless and absolutely no pain.

I was referred to Dr. Aldridge by my primary care physician. He diagnosed my severe arthritis in both hands and i was in severe pain without warning. His caring professional manner gave me great confidence from the beginning. He explained the surgical procedure in great detail and prepared me for the post-operative expectations and rehab exercises. Due to outstanding surgical skills, after only 60 days, I have full range of movement and minimal discomfort. I will be forever grateful!

Dr. Aldridge performed two surgeries on both hands, with three incisions per hand. He did a carpal tunnel release and replaced the first carpometacarpal joint in both thumbs with a tendon from my wrists. Even days after each surgery, I had less pain in the hand than the week before the surgery. At only 7 months from my right hand surgery, all my incisions are virtually invisible. I can open jars bare-handed. I am able to do any activity I wish without constant pain in my hands.

Vitals Guest

By the time Dr. Julian Mack Aldridge performed surgery on my hands, I had experienced years of increasingly painful arthritis, 4 years of painful shots that gradually stopped helping, and wore custom night splints on both hands. I could no longer open jars, and typed with increasing pain. My hands hurt all the time. Even swimming was painful. Dr. Aldridge performed two surgeries on both hands, with three incisions per hand. He did a carpal tunnel release and replaced the first carpometacarpal joint in both thumbs with a tendon from my wrists. Both thumb joints had deteriorated from arthritis due to separate accidents and overuse. The surgery exceeded my expectations for success in every possible way. Even days after each surgery, I had less pain in the hand than the week before the surgery. He did my dominant right hand first. I was 2 weeks in a soft cast, 4 weeks in short hard cast, and 3 months in a thumb joint splint. At 91 days, he did the exact same surgeries on my left hand with the same time frames for casts and 1 month for the splint. I continue to do Occupational Therapy exercises with good results and no pain. At this writing, I am less than 7 months from my first surgery. All 6 of my incisions are virtually invisible. I can open jars bare-handed. I am able to do any activity I wish, from gardening to swimming to typing for hours, with no pain. Dr. Aldridge set me free from the constant and worsening pain, and gave me back the enjoyment of my normal daily activities.

After being a licensed RN and practicing for 50 years in various healthcare in- and out-patient settings, and other than two childbirth admissions, I had my first personal hospitalization experience in 2017. Dr. Aldridge as my hand/wrist surgeon, and all the Durham office and NC Specialty Hospital staff, including front desk/admissions and licensed staff provided the highest level of care and professionalism, always assuring education understood and that both my spouse and I felt their support.

I had been told by "the best" at Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem that my hand would never get better. My left thumb was basically useless after a series of surgeries to combat a serious infection. Dr. Aldridge dd not agree and after 2 more surgeries that he performed I have extensive use of my left thumb! He restored my quality of life!

When I was referred to Dr. Aldridge in December, I had significant pain and diminished movement in my wrist following a fracture seven months before. During that time, I was receiving treatment from another orthopedist. Just before my first appointment with Dr. Aldridge, I had been told my condition may never improve. Dr. Aldridge proved that to be incorrect. My pain is gone; movement has been restored. His plan of treatment, including that of my OT, has had miraculous results. I am so grateful for his caring expertise.

Dr. Aldridge is a fantastic doctor. He performed a complicated procedure on my Daughters elbow with amazing results.

Kudos to Dr. Aldridge and support team for making life much easier in my backpacking hobby. My wrist is pain free and continues to improve after a lot of self inflicted abuse. Hope I don't have to come back but will certainly know who to look for if I have problems with the other wrist!

Outstanding Doctor! He explained all procedures in a friendly manner. Always had time for the patient. Had Carpal Tunnel surgery on both hands. Eight months later, no problems whatsoever! I can highly recommend him as a surgeon!

Dr. Aldridge and his staff are excellent. I was seen quickly every time I visited his office. My surgery went excellent. Dr. Aldridge takes the time to talk and listen so that I understood everything. I pray I never need an Ortho Dr. again but if I do, Dr. Aldridge will be my first choice. I drove 150 miles one way just to see him and it was definitely worth it.

I had a tumor located in my elbow area of my arm. Dr. Aldridge and his staff are excellent and very approachable. I have nothing but rave reviews for my surgery and office visits. Thank you.

Dr Aldridge literally saved my elbow. In Oct 2015, was in a scooter accident in Croatia which resulted in a broken olecranon and large open wound. Received stitches overseas and two surgeries (by a different Ortho) in the US. My elbow was frozen. A few months later I found myself in Dr. Abridges office asking if he could help me. He did! He released my elbow and transposed my ulnar nerve. Huge success. I've regained my motion and strength and am back to doing the sport of triathlon.

Dr. Aldridge is first class. He is professional and good humored, definitely not a dictator like most doctors. I would definitely go to him again and find his staff to be terrific as well. The procedure he did on me is one I have been avoiding for 5 years. Frankly I never really understood this issue until I saw Dr. Aldridge and better understood. His demeanor conveys a real level of trust and his honesty is refreshing. I would recommend him highly.

I waited for many years to have my carpal tunnel surgery, thinking that I could heal my wrists without help. Because I depend on my hands for very fine craftsmanship in my artwork, I was fearful. I discovered Dr. Aldridge, an excellent and concerned doctor, and a surgeon of great precision. He included me in every aspect of my successful procedures and consequent healing. I am so thrilled to once again have two healthy and strong hands. I was actually back in my studio right away. Miraculous!

We were referred to Dr. Aldridge and his practice from our current orthopedic surgeon who said my son needed to see a hand / wrist specialist because of the extent of his injury. He told us Dr. Aldridge was the best and who he would choose if he needed this surgery for himself or one of his children. We had complete faith that he would never steer us in the wrong direction so we made an appointment to see Dr. Aldridge. Upon meeting him we knew immediately he would be perfect for our son. He made you feel comfortable when meeting him, never rushes through an appointment, and sincerely wants to do what is in the patient’s best interest. He listens and thoughtfully takes his time to answer any questions or concerns. Remarkable as it sounds, he even called our house on a holiday weekend to check on my son. We have seen Dr. Aldridge several times over the last year and when you see a Dr. that often and he continues to meet and exceed your expectations you know this is the pattern not the exception. When Dr. Aldridge is with you in the room you feel as if you are the only patient he is seeing that day. Through my son’s 3 surgeries over the past year, we have worked with the rest of his team and they are professional, efficient and very caring. His assistant, Sana, has made emergency appointments, called me in the evening, and personally relayed my questions to Dr. Aldridge. When they say they will call you back the same day, they always do. The timely follow-up is how you hope every doctor’s office would operate but the reality is Triangle Orthopedics seems to be unique. Dr. Aldridge’s PA, Brian, who you see for pre op appointments is very precise with what to expect since Dr. Aldridge has reviewed in detail the upcoming surgical procedure. Dr. Aldridge has also taken the time to get to know my son not just as a patient but on a personal level. It has made all the difference because my son admires and respects Dr. Aldridge and follows his instructions to the letter. They work tougher as a team. Dr. Aldridge has gone out of his way to work around my son’s athletic and school schedule and schedules the surgeries that will best meet his needs. When it comes to your children you want the best possible doctor and the best possible outcome for them and it can be stressful but if you need to see a Dr. for a hand or wrist injury I give Dr. Aldridge the highest vote of confidence. I can personally say that you will be happy and thankful that you had the privilege of working with Dr. Aldridge and his team.

Dr. Aldridge is a personable, gentle, knowlegable physician who is an excellent sugeon from my experience with him. He knows his area of expertise well and can prepare you for the likely outcome of pain levels, when things will improve and how to manage if your pain is beyond your tolerance. As a mental health therapist, I recognize a person who is caring and kind. He has those personal qualities as well as a love of his chosen area of hand surgery. Once when he was delayed, he told me in general terms the incident that delayed him. I highly recommend him and am glad to have found him for my joint which was "shot." I look forward to having use of my hand back and will return to him for repair of the other hand at a later time.
