He ultimately decided to join the private practice of Woods Mill Orthopedics for the one on one relationship he can develop with his patients and the great reputation of the group.Dr. Wegman is currently the only fellowship trained hip and knee replacement specialist at St. Luke’s and in addition to hip and knee replacements he also accepts referrals from other Orthopedic Surgeons for revision hip and knee replacements and complex cases.
