Joint Replacement

Our specialty-trained doctors at Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are recognized experts in joint replacement.

Severe joint pain is the most common reason patients undergo a joint replacement procedure. Whether your pain is a result of an old injury, of a degenerative condition like arthritis or osteoarthritis, or due to a fracture, joint replacement procedures may be the recommended treatment option. The most common joint replacements are of the hipknee, or shoulder.

You may be a candidate for a joint replacement surgery if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Severe joint pain
  • Pain in the joint that keeps you awake at night
  • Joint discomfort that prevents you from participating in recreational activities
  • Joint pain that limits your ability to conduct necessary and daily functions, such as climbing stairs or standing up
  • You have attempted more conservative treatment methods, such as exercise or therapy, without success
