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 of a fracture, joint replacement procedures may be the recommended treatment option.

Nearly any joint in the body can be replaced with a fully functioning artificial implant, but the most common joint replacements are of the hip, knee, 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

At Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine , we understand that pain in your joints can make simple, everyday tasks difficult.

To consult with one of our joint replacement doctors, please request an appointment online, or call (910) 484-2171.

  • I went in as a walk in yesterday after 5pm. My doctor recommended that I go at that time. When we arrived the front desk rep came out with a wheelchair to help me in the building. They were very friendly at the front desk. The check in is a little too much, but I was in the back quickly. (After hours is best.) The nurse, x-ray tech and PA were kind, friendly, and patient with me because I had a lot of questions and concerns. My fiance is a talker and they even entertained him. I have to say the experience was great. I recommend after hours 5-7 weekdays.
