I’m giving them an 8 because it’s almost impossible to get someone to answer the phone… just answer the phone! I have a question and called 4x and it keeps directing me in all directions … it’s maddening !

Dr. Fraser is the first doctor to take seriously what was going on in both of my knees since the orthopedist who implanted knee replacements retired. And I have gone to a number of orthopedists (not in Novant system) who dismissed my concerns. I am grateful indeed for Dr. Fraser, and his team was great!

Learn More
I am a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee replacement. Using minimally invasive techniques that allow for enhanced recovery, I conduct some total joint operations outpatient. My expertise is in robotic surgery, partial knee replacements and complex revision surgery for failed hip and knee replacements.

My clinical focus areas include a broad spectrum of orthopedic conditions, including all types of fractures and musculoskeletal pathologies. I have extensive research experience in orthopedics and have participated in more than 40 projects that have been presented or published in peer-reviewed journals or meetings. I am certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons and scored in the 96th percentile on the written orthopedic board exam. I am an active member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons as well as the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

I live in Charlotte with my wife and three daughters. In my free time, I enjoy playing and watching basketball, fishing and traveling with my family.
