Nonsurgical Orthopedics

We focus entirely on nonsurgical orthopedics and general sports medicine care. This includes ultrasound guided steroid injections/aspirations of the extremities and hip for tendonitis and arthritis, sports injuries including basic sprains and fractures, and advanced injections including hyaluronic acid (hyalgan, supartz, lubricant injections), prolotherapy, and PRP injections (platelet-rich plasma). We also see sports concussions, and any general performance medicine complaints.

We offer the only nonsurgical sports medicine treatment in the Raleigh area. When you are a Wake Internal Medicine patient, you can trust our practitioners to not immediately jump straight to an expensive and painful surgery, which would also require time-consuming recovery time. Our treatment and service options are all very minimally invasive, yet still based around research and results. Our orthopedic office is one of the highest tech sports medicine offices in the region which enhances our modern and effective therapies. We want to utilize technology and innovative nonsurgical techniques to get you back to full activity. Our orthopedic physician, Dr. Matthew Kanaan, is highly trained and has extensive experience with NCAA Division 1 athletes at the highest level. His experience in the field is extensive and he is dedicated to finding the best nonsurgical option for your orthopedic needs.
