Dr. Wiseman practices general orthopedic surgery, with a special interest in total joint replacement, trauma and sports medicine.

Approach to Treatment

I believe in treating patients as though they were family members, extending the same respect and compassion I would show to a member of my own family.

He believes that the practice of orthopedic medicine is an ongoing learning process and that continuing education is essential to providing the finest care possible to his patients. This allows him to offer state-of-the-art techniques to his patients as the available technology continues to advance.

Dr. Wiseman’s goal is to provide each patient with a complete evaluation and work with the patient to select the treatment option that will best provide a safe, expedient return to a healthy lifestyle. Combined with his great professionalism, this approach earns Dr. Wiseman the confidence and trust of his patients as he helps them move toward recovery.
