Dr. Wertman is a graduate of Penn State University and Philadelphia College of Medicine. He completed his orthopaedic surgery training in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

During his fellowship training, he had the unique opportunity to treat a variety of upper extremity injuries in professional athletes within the greater Charlotte area.
Dr. Wertman has a broad range of orthopaedic knowledge, and his special interests include:
- Upper extremity conditions involving the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder
- Arthritis, fracture care and sports/work-related injuries
- Nerve compression syndromes, traumatic reconstructions, and congenital abnormalities
- A team approach in patient care, involving occupational therapists, physicians, and the patient’s family to coordinate a smooth recovery and return to normal activity.
Dr. Wertman is board certified in orthopaedic surgery with a subspecialty in hand/upper extremity surgery. He is a member of the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopaedics (AOAO), American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH)
