UNC Joint Replacement

Our Total Joint Team has years of experience replacing and repairing our patients’ arthritic hips and knees, with a high priority of returning each patient to a quality of life that meets and exceeds his or her expectations.

Procedures include:

  • Primary hip and knee replacement
  • Hip and Knee Replacement in Active Individuals
  • Partial Knee Replacement (medial, lateral and patellofemoral)
  • Muscle-sparing Knee Replacement
  • Direct Anterior Hip Replacement
  • Computer Assisted Surgery
  • Patient-specific instrumentation and implants

We provided a coordinated-care approach to reduce your length of stay in the hospital, and accelerate post-operative rehabilitation to get you back active as soon as possible.
