The Joint Replacement Center

At Carolina Orthopaedic & Neurosurgical Associates

About Our
Joint Replacement Program

Many joint problems are related to arthritis of the knee, hip, and shoulder. Other joint problems can be caused by osteonecrosis, cartilage tears, and rotator cuff damage. Whenever possible, our physicians treat joint disorders through non-surgical options such as medication, therapy and splinting. Depending on the stage of the disease or the extent of the patient’s disability, the Joint Replacement Center may treat these joint problems with reconstructive or replacement surgery, like knee replacement or hip replacement surgery. We are dedicated to the early identification and treatment of joint problems.

Common Joint Replacements

Hip pain patients are encouraged to make an appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedics and Neurological Associates’ (CONA) hip specialist to find out if total hip replacement is an appropriate treatment option.
