Dr. Chris Woodson is a phenomenal orthopedic doctor and surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone needing an orthopedic specialist. Not only is he a great doctor and surgeon with a warm bed side manner, he is very responsive and proactive with his patients. He came in at the 11th hour to save my son from an unnecessary surgery. My 9 year old son fell on his elbow at school and we thought it was broken. The elbow specialist we saw the day of the accident insisted that he needed surgery right away to repair the damage. He insisted the repairs needed to be done immediately before the elbow continued to grow, making a 100% recovery impossible. As I prepared to take my son to the hospital for surgery, Dr. Woodson reviewed my son’s x-rays and within hours of leaving for the hospital, Dr. Woodson called to say that HE DID NOT NEED SURGERY! After reviewing the xrays, he determined that what looks like a break is actually the growth plate, and he 100% does not need surgery. That was five years ago, my son did not have the surgery. His elbow healed perfectly on its own and he’s is 100%. I am forever indebted to Dr. Woodson for his expertise, and will unconditionally recommend him to others.
