Adult Reconstructive Surgery & Total Joint Replacement
Offering the latest advancements in joint replacement surgery, CSM surgeons are experts in minimally invasive techniques.
For individuals needing reconstructive surgery, total joint replacement is often the preferred treatment. The goal of joint replacement is to relieve pain caused by damaged cartilage within the joint.
Carolina Sports Medicine surgeons replace damaged areas of the joint with metal and plastic surfaces, restoring movement and function. Joint replacements are most common in hips and knees but are also effective for shoulders and elbows.
While recovery from joint replacement surgery depends on numerous factors, including severity of joint damage and level of patient mobility pre-surgery, exercising and rebuilding the muscles surrounding the affected joint are important components of the process.
