Joint Replacement

Taking care of a severely injured or diseased joint is more than just applying state-of-the-art surgical techniques. It is the skilled hands-on evaluation and appropriate diagnostic testing that determines the best overall plan of care, remembering of course, that we are not treating a joint, but a human being.

Today, Americans are enjoying longer, more active lives than in any time in history. Yet, as we age our bodies change and a lifetime of activity and occasional abuse takes its toll on everyone. Sometimes those changes result in specific problems related to joints and muscles. Painful, stiff joints can become lifestyle altering and prevent many individuals from participating in the daily activities they enjoy. We apply our clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from joint pain or discomfort.

It is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. However, if and when a surgical procedure becomes the right choice, our orthopedic surgeons are trained to correct problems related to joint pain. Our unique continuum of care approach produces outstanding clinical and patient satisfaction results. This integrated approach enables our clinical team to properly evaluate a patient’s condition and prepare each patient mentally and physically for their procedure; then we continuously monitor and manage their entire pre- and post-surgical performance and progress. This full-service approach, which integrates the patient’s primary care physician and orthopedic surgeon with a host of clinical support staff, is designed to return our patients to maximum function as quickly and safely as possible.

Our orthopedic surgeons have the ability to replace all major joints including:

Hip Replacement

 

Hips are one of the most important joints in the human body. Normally, all parts of the joint work together and the joint moves easily without pain. When the joint becomes diseased or injured, the resulting pain can severely limit your ability to move and work. Our team has extensive experience with performing hip replacement surgery. After your hip replacement surgery, it is our goal for you to have decreased pain and restored range of motion in your hip.

The Anterior Approach to a Hip Replacement
Every year nearly a quarter of a million people in the United States have hip replacement surgery. The doctors at Randolph Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine perform an anterior approach in hip replacement surgery to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the more traditional side or the back approach. Doing this allows the surgeon to replace the hip without detaching muscles. This means that the most important muscles needed for hip functioning are untouched, requiring no healing of the muscles and a quicker overall recovery time.

Knee Replacement

 

We expect that all of the parts of the knee joint work together and the joint moves easily and without pain. What we do not expect is for disease or injury to disturb the normal functioning of a joint, which can result in pain, muscle weakness, and limited movement. And with longer life expectancies and great activity levels, joint replacement is being performed in greater numbers on younger patients thanks to new advances in artificial joint technology.

The knee joint works like a hinge at the junction of two bones, the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shin). The ends of these bones are covered with a thick cushion of hard white cartilage. If this cartilage is damaged or worn away, the bones rub together and cause pain and inflammation in the knee joint. This inflammation can eventually make it difficult for individuals to work and enjoy themselves.

Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement
We offer a minimally invasive, muscle sparing approach to knee replacement surgery. This approach can result in significantly less trauma to the leg, faster healing and more strength and mobility in the new knee. With few orthopedic surgeons trained in this surgical approach, the minimally invasive technique is making Asheboro, NC, a destination joint replacement center.

Shoulder Replacement

 

Shoulder surgery or replacement may be an option for individuals with serious shoulder conditions or severe injuries who have not been able to find relief with non-operative treatments.

Our experienced medical staff can evaluate your condition and determine if shoulder surgery is necessary, or if a non-surgical treatment or other conservative approaches may be effective.

We take a personalized approach to orthopedic care, which has made us one of the most trusted clinics in North Carolina.
