Chronic hip or knee pain that keeps you from doing the activities you love or even your everyday activities is cause to consult an orthopedic specialist.

You may find the relief you need from physical therapy at New Hanover Regional Medical Center Outpatient Rehabilitation or surgery at New Hanover Regional Medical Center Orthopedic Hospital.

We develop your treatment plan around your specific needs, coordinated through a team of hip and knee specialists.

Surgical Treatment

You may wish to explore surgical options if you do not get relief from noninvasive therapies. Orthopedic surgeons perform more than 700 hip and 1,500 knee procedures at NHRMC Orthopedic Hospital each year, including:

  • ACL reconstruction
  • Hip arthroscopy
  • Hip replacement, including minimally invasive
  • Hip resurfacing
  • Knee arthroscopy
  • Knee replacement

After Surgery

Rehabilitation and therapy will begin soon after your surgery to help you recover movement. We will help you manage pain and proceed at a pace that is comfortable for you. After discharge from the hospital, you can continue your therapy at NHRMC Outpatient Rehabilitation. NHRMC Home Care also provides in-home therapy services for orthopedic surgery patients.
