Our services

Novant Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine - Eastover is committed to treating common to complex injuries and conditions affecting the shoulder, elbow and knee. Our goals are simple: to lessen your pain and improve your mobility so you can get back to the activities you enjoy as quickly and safely as possible.

Novant Health continually invests in advanced orthopedic technology for both diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic injuries and conditions. This gives our patients easy access to accurate diagnoses as well as the very latest orthopedic treatments available. Should surgery be a part of your care plan, you will have both traditional and minimally invasive, robotic-assisted options. Some of these minimally invasive options require minimal downtime and may make it possible for you to return home on the same day as your procedure.

We understand that recovery is a process, not an event. Before your treatment plan begins, your care team will work with you to identify health issues that could stand in the way of your success. This might include addressing smoking or abnormal blood sugar levels or mental health conditions. Then, after your treatment, your care team will continue to support your recovery, ensuring you have access to rehabilitation services such as physical therapy when needed.
