We’ll begin with a precise diagnosis, using the most advanced, highest quality imaging and technology. Then we’ll recommend a course of treatment to relieve your pain, restore your strength and flexibility and help you get back to normal activity. We may suggest lifestyle changes that could make a difference. If treatment is required, we’ll help you consider all options, including medication, rehabilitation therapy and other non-surgical alternatives.

Hip fractures can be a particular problem, if you’re 50 and older, so we streamline our evaluation and get you into surgery as quickly as possible after arriving at the emergency department. Later we’ll advise you on how to help prevent future injuries, and we’ll work with your primary care physician to ensure you receive continued care.

Many orthopedic surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis. But if a hospital stay is required, you’ll receive care in surgical suites and nursing units that are dedicated to orthopedics. Our orthopedic surgeons are board-certified and specialty- or fellowship-trained and our radiologists, anesthesiologists, nurses and therapists have specialized skills in orthopedics.

To give you the best care, our orthopedic experts focus in specific treatment areas:

  • Total joint replacement, with the most advanced procedures for the knee, hip and shoulder
If you’re scheduled for joint replacement surgery, we encourage you to view a recorded webinar about preparing for a total knee replacement here.
  • Shoulder and elbow, including ligament, tendon and nerve damage, arthritis and bone death

  • Foot and ankle, including bunions, ligament damage, heel pain, numbness, amputations and complications from diabetes

  • Hand and wrist, including congenital disorders, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, contractures and nerve damage

  • Spine surgery, including herniated discs, osteoporosis, scoliosis, rheumatoid arthritis and tumors

  • Sports medicine, including fractures, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries and tennis elbow

At Charlotte Orthopedic Hospital, we’re with you all the way, and that includes patient education, sophisticated pain management and full-service rehabilitation.
