Originally founded by Dr. Wieman Kretz, the first orthopaedic surgeon in the area, Hampton Roads Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine continues to evolve to meet the demands of the ever-changing orthopaedic healthcare industry. In addition to orthopaedic care, our physicians participate with the training of future physicians through the Riverside Regional Medical Center as well as participating in clinical research studies and working with various healthcare developers to enhance adult reconstruction.

The world-class A+ good Dr. Aldridge proved his case to me as if there was nothing to it. That is what really got me. That still impresses me most. That has been my experience from the welcoming automatic entrance door for the first visit, to the super-friendly, talented, efficient and patient-centered Dr. Aldridge team and the entire HROSM practice. Nothing to it.

This is a place of dedicated professionals who take a personal interest in the patient while showing deep commitment to the hard work their care requires.

Thank you so much Dr. Aldridge, Team and HROSM. Here’s to your health too!

I have recommended 8 to 10 fellow golfers and tennis partners to Dr. Aldridge since 2005 and John has performed successful hip, knee, and shoulder replacements on all of them. He is not only an outstanding surgeon, he is a great family man with three children and his wife is expecting with a fourth shortly. I’d be remiss by not mentioning that John is 41 years only, a Lt. Col. in the U.S. Army Reserves and looks like he is 30 years old!

“As a recent MRI patient, I want to compliment you and your team for the professional care I received from your staff, especially your MRI technologists. As a wounded veteran of both World War II and Korea, and a POW in Europe, I especially appreciated the open multi-positional equipment.”

This past year Dr. Fithian replaced first my right shoulder and then my left shoulder. My pain is totally gone and my range of motion is better than it has been in years.

I have referred several friends to HROSM, and they too have been more than satisfied with their treatment. I have no qualms about referring anyone to HROSM and if any more of my joints go bad, I will know where to go. I hope Dr. Fithian and Dr. Carter know how much I appreciate their special skills.”
