OrthoCarolina Welcomes New Physicians

OrthoCarolina is proud to welcome Johnathan C. Riboh, MD, and Matthew C. Wendt, MD, to our team of physicians.


Jonathan C. Riboh, MD, joins the OrthoCarolina Sports Medicine Center, Cartilage Restoration Institute and South Park location as a sports medicine surgeon specializing in pediatric, adolescent and adult sports medicine, cartilage restoration and OrthoBiologics. He received his Doctor of Medicine with a concentration in Bioengineering from Stanford University in Palo Alto, Cali. 

“What I love the most about my field of practice is seeing patients achieve their goal of returning to sports,” Dr. Riboh said. “I treat a lot of kids, adolescents and college athletes, and the determination they exhibit throughout their surgery and recovery inspires me daily. . . "

"Being a team physician and getting to see patients you’ve treated from the sideline is unique to our profession and allows us to see the fruits of our labor in a way that few surgeons ever do,” he said.

Dr. Riboh completed his residency at Duke University Medical Center, a six-month residency rotation in Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery and Pediatric Medicine at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and a Sports Medicine Fellowship at Rush University Medical Center/Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush.

Dr. Riboh, his wife Dr. Christa Swisher, a critical care neurologist at Atrium Health, and their two children moved to Charlotte from Durham to Charlotte and are enjoying exploring their new community. In their free time, they like to work out, cook, travel and spend time outdoors.


Matthew C. Wendt, MD, joins OrthoCarolina Rock Hill specializing in hip & knee, shoulder and sports medicine. Dr. Wendt received his Doctor of Medicine from Rush Medical College in Chicago, Ill., and completed his residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. He is a fellow in the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and a member of the Society of Military Orthopedic Surgeons. 

“My favorite part of practicing orthopedics is helping patients regain lost function and improving their quality of life through both surgical and non-surgical treatment,” Dr. Wendt said. “Seeing patients back in the office and hearing about the activities they have been able to enjoy again without pain is very rewarding for me.”

Prior to joining OrthoCarolina, Dr. Wendt worked as an orthopedic surgeon in the United States Navy for eight years. He enjoys spending time outdoors and with his family. 

“OrthoCarolina is a national leader in both advancing orthopedic science and value-based care in a dynamic modern healthcare environment,” he said. “I have admired OrthoCarolina from the time I first learned about the practice during my residency at Mayo Clinic.”

I first became a patient of OrthoCarolina sometime between 1990 and 1995. While living in Rock Hill, Cairo (Egypt), Spartanburg, SC, and, now, Mount Pleasant SC, I have continued to visit when I need orthopedic help. Learning about your new physicians and what you are doing now is exciting for me. I feel so fortunate to have had access to your physicians and their expertise for all these years. Thank you!
