Meet Dr. Tyler Wind
Dr. Tyler C. Wind, a Tappahannock native and 1997 graduate of Essex High School, has returned home to open the Northern Neck Bone & Joint Center.
Dr. Wind completed both his undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Virginia before performing his orthopaedic surgery residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Just prior to his return to the area, he performed one year of fellowship training in Roanoke, Virginia with specialized training in joint replacement, sports medicine, and other minimally invasive procedures. By opening the Northern Neck Bone & Joint Center, Dr. Wind fulfills his dream of giving back to the community he dearly loves. “Although I received multiple offers from other institutions in larger cities and small towns, my heart has always remained in this region. Choosing Riverside was a relatively easy decision – their high level of quality care and devotion to top notch orthopaedics created a perfect match,” he said.
“I think it is important for individuals to be able to return to the activities they enjoy, from football to sailing to gardening, and I cherish the opportunity to help them continue whatever it is they love. Whether you are a child with a broken forearm, an adolescent with a sports injury, a middle-aged individual with shoulder pain, or a grandparent considering joint replacement we have the tools to help you.”
Dr. Wind explains his desire to raise a family here as an opportunity for them to experience much of what he did growing up and ultimately share his love for the region. He looks forward to introducing his wife Ashley, and son Tyler II, to the area and the people.
