He has contributed several peer-reviewed scientific articles and textbook chapters to the medical literature.

Dr. Wroten’s philosophy is to treat patients as though they are members of his family. He believes in employing nonoperative treatment consisting of patient education, therapy, medications, splints, or injections before considering surgery. When surgery is indicated he educates his patients about the procedures available and together they decide what surgery will provide them with the best results.
