Matthew E. Ravish, DO - Orthopedics - Wake Forest Baptist Health

Author: Wake Forest Baptist Health

My name is Matthew Ravish, I'm assistant professor for the Department of Orthopaedics and Pediatrics. I initially came to Wake Forest Baptist Health as a resident in training in 2006 and completed my residency training in Pediatrics at Brenner Children's Hospital, moved away to do fellowship and then came back on faculty with the Department of Orthopaedics in 2010. Within children's orthopaedics, I have special interest in children born with club foot deformity- this deformity involves the lower part of the leg and the foot- and fortunately, we have the ability to treat this in a very non-surgical way with casting- small procedure- and bracing. It's a very rewarding form of deformity to treat in that children do very well through the treatment and it's a unique experience to have the family involved with and we have a special center to care for these children here at Brenner Children's Hospital. The reasons I became an orthopaedic specialist specifically in pediatrics, is first of all I love children. I completed a training in pediatrics initially and I love taking care of children really from the time their born up until the time they become young adults and move on with life.

Specifically, I love orthopaedics. I love taking care of children with either minor injuries all the way up to significant injuries and those children that also have birth deformities and skeletal deformities for which they need care early on and then through their growing years. I believe there's a strong uniqueness to Wake Forest Baptist Health.

I believe in my field of pediatrics we offer a strong children's hospital here at Brenner Children's Hospital that offers unique care to patients of many ages- again from the time they're born all the way up until young adulthood that other hospitals in our area do not have the capability or the facility or faculty to care for those unique patients.
