When movement of a knee or hip is painful, it can prevent us from attempting something as simple as taking a step. Joint replacement can help you get back to the things you love. The Outer Banks Hospital has been performing total joint replacement surgery for hips and knees since 2003. Our expert surgeons and state-of the-art operating suite enable us to utilize the latest techniques including minimally invasive procedures like anterior hip replacement.
If you would like to find out more, why not attend one of our Joint Replacement Education Classes (or “Joint Camp” as we like to call it.) There you will learn about the best way to prepare for surgery, what you can expect during your stay with us, and how to get back to your full life as quickly as possible.
In addition to total joint replacement, we offer arthroscopic surgery to fix small tears, repair damaged cartilage and remove broken pieces of cartilage. This minimally invasive procedure involves a very small incision for insertion of specialized instruments to view, diagnose, and treat issues inside the joint.
It’s all about moving again. If you’re avoiding things that you used to enjoy because of joint pain, there are options. Let’s explore them together.
