With us, you’ll always be given thoughtful, individualized care and treatment for joint replacements in Fayetteville and Elizabethtown, NC. We’ll work with you to determine if you’re a good candidate for joint replacement. Most patients choose to have a total joint replacement when their joint pain causes difficulty sleeping, limits their ability to participate in daily activities, or prevents them from participating in their hobbies. In cases of very localized arthritis, you may be a candidate for a partial joint replacement.

Total Hip & Knee Replacement
Our patients typically need a hip or knee replacement after joint deterioration due to:
- Cartilage injury
- Avascular necrosis
- Osteochondritis dissecans
- Congenital knee or hip deformities
When we perform a knee or hip replacement in Fayetteville or Elizabethtown, we’ll remove the arthritic or damaged joint and replace it with a prosthesis (artificial joint). Thanks to new technologies, we’re able to use minimally-invasive techniques for total hip and knee replacements, which often speeds up recovery. Our goal for total joint replacement is to give our patients an improved quality of life, including pain-free movement and greater independence.
Partial Knee Replacement
In some patients, a partial knee replacement can mitigate pain from arthritis or injury. This surgery involves using a smaller implant inside the knee to replace the damaged part of the knee. Patients who undergo a partial knee replacement typically enjoy a quicker recovery time and normal knee function due to the minimally-invasive nature of the surgery. Our Fayetteville and Elizabethtown joint replacement experts can determine if a partial knee replacement may be beneficial for you.
