Orthopedic Hospital

Foot and Ankle Surgery

When foot and ankle pain becomes chronic, fails to respond to non-surgical remedies and begins to interfere with life’s daily activities, surgical options should be considered.

Surgical options include arthroscopic surgeries, bunionectomy and hammer toe repair, cartilage repair or resurfacing procedures, fracture care, joint replacement (arthroplasty), ligament reconstructions, and repair of torn ligaments and tendons.

Dedicated to Orthopedic Surgical Services

Foot and ankle surgeries at NHRMC Orthopedic Hospital are performed in a stand-alone dedicated facility in which staff is entirely focused on your orthopedic care.  The largest orthopedic program in Eastern North Carolina, NHRMC Orthopedic Hospital offers eight operating rooms and a pre-op clinic outfitted specifically for orthopedic care, advanced imaging and diagnostic equipment, surgical suites, and rehabilitation services.
