About Gary

Board certified in orthopedic surgery with a subspecialty in hand/upper extremity surgery, Dr. Gary Wertman is a graduate of Penn State University and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

After completing his orthopedic surgery training in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he practiced for a short time in eastern North Carolina before quickly realizing the community’s need for a fellowship-trained upper extremity surgeon. Subsequently, he completed a fellowship at the OrthoCarolina Hand Center in Charlotte, NC, where he specialized in Hand, Upper Extremity, and Microvascular Surgery.

During his fellowship training, Dr. Wertman had the unique opportunity of using sports medicine to treat a variety of upper extremity injuries in professional athletes within the greater Charlotte area.

He is dedicated to the team approach to patient care, involving the orthopedic surgeon, occupational therapists, physicians, and the patient’s family to coordinate a smooth recovery and return to normal activity.
