Outside of the upper extremity specialty, Dr. Aldridge has published numerous articles and spoken at national and international meetings about his experience with a procedure called Avascular Necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head with the free vascularized fibular graft (FVFG). Dr. Aldridge has been practicing orthopaedics since 2003. He currently performs surgeries at North Carolina Specialty Hospital, James E. Davis Surgery Center, and Durham Regional Hospital.

The Subspecialty Certificate in Surgery of the Hand (formerly CAQ Hand) is for those surgeons who have demonstrated qualifications in hand surgery beyond those expected of other orthopaedic surgeons by virtue of additional training, a practice characterized by a majority of cases in hand surgery, and contributions to this field.
