For the past 30 years, Dr. Wallace Andrew has had the privilege to serve as a team orthopaedist for the 23 varsity sports teams. He has the knowledge and expertise to manage the care of athletes with all types of sports injuries with extensive experience in treating upper extremity injuries.
He completed his internship and residency at Columbia University in New York City, where he also served as chief resident. Dr. Andrew then served a fellowship in Hand Surgery and Sports Medicine at the University of Virginia under the directorship of Dr. Frank McCue, the long-time sports medicine physician at the University of Virginia. Dr. Andrew is currently the senior partner at Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic, Wake County's largest, most established orthopedic practice, where he specializes in sports medicine and particularly in injuries to the upper extremity.
Like most sports medicine physicians, Dr. Andrew has a background in athletics. In high school, he participated in all sports and continued on to be a distance runner at the University of Virginia. Nowadays he is mostly a spectator, but still has an avid interest in sports and sports medicine. He has been a long-time team physician at Broughton High School in Raleigh. On Friday nights in the fall it is likely to find him standing on the sidelines at a Broughton football game, and the next day you'll most likely find him at NC State working with the athletes in some capacity or another. Over the past 30 years, Dr. Andrew has had the opportunity to be on the sidelines and in the stands for many athletic events at NC State, and has a tremendous amount of experience in dealing with athletes. He enjoys taking care of the athletes for the unique challenge to return them to their elite level of participation. However, like most sports medicine physicians, he also realizes that these athletes have a long life after their days of competition and that the correct decisions need to be made for life-long musculoskeletal health.
Dr. Andrew is also recognized as a leader and educator in the community. He is the past president of the Southeastern Hand Club, the North Carolina Society for Surgery of the Hand, and the Medical Staff at WakeMed Health and Hospitals. In addition, Dr. Andrew is committed to promoting orthopaedic education in the Triangle. He is currently on the board of the Dameron Orthopaedic Education Foundation, and has served as a clinical instructor in the Department of Orthopaedics at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, where he received the Harry E. Dacomb, MD award for his significant contributions to clinical teaching and care, and on numerous occasions, Dr. Andrew was selected as the Clinical Faculty Teacher of the Year.
