North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic is proud to make exceptional orthopedic care easily available to patients in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Whether you’ve recently sustained an injury or you’ve been living with a chronic condition for months or even years, we can provide you with the treatment experience you deserve. We strive to always put our patients’ needs first, and our caring and compassionate bone specialists do whatever they can to ensure that our patients receive the best possible results.
Specialized, One-of-a-Kind Care
When you’re living with an orthopedic condition, and especially one that’s causing you pain or keeping you from participating in your usual activities, you don’t want to receive treatment from just anyone. You want to be treated by a bone specialist who’s highly knowledgeable about that area of the body, and who possesses extensive experience treating your specific condition.
When you entrust your care to North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic, that won’t even be a concern. Since our founding in 2003, we’ve made it our goal to provide our patients with specialized care, and we accomplish that by employing fellowship-trained bone specialists who focus their practice on one distinct subspecialty.
Bone Specialist Subspecialties
There are many subspecialties our bone specialists have chosen to focus on, so our patients receive care from an expert rather than a general physician, including:
When bone specialists concentrate on treating hands, they may see arthritis, bursitis, trigger finger, nerve damage, fractures, and amputations. Some of our specialists are microvascular surgeons, able to repair small blood vessels with an operating microscope, specialized equipment, and tiny needles with ultrafine sutures—which is crucial to keeping blood flowing to your hands.
Spinal bone specialists can treat a variety of conditions, including scoliosis, arthritis, bone spurs, vertebral instability, fractures, neck pain, and back pain. They may also treat or repair bulging and herniated discs, the soft cushions between your vertebrae that allow your spine to move without the bones grinding against each other.
Sports Medicine and Cartilage Restoration
Our sports medicine and cartilage restoration bone specialists are jacks of all joints. They may treat one patient’s hip, another’s knee, someone’s elbow, and someone else’s shoulder. These bone specialists can replace the joints entirely, treat fractures and repetitive motion injuries, or recommend conservative treatment that may include splints, braces, physical therapy, medication, injections, and a home exercise program.
Foot and Ankle
When bone specialists concentrate on feet and ankles, they can have a massive impact on a patient’s life and their ability to move freely from one place to another. They may suggest a new pair of shoes, other conservative treatment, or surgery like fracture repair or ankle replacement.
Sometimes bone specialists choose to focus on podiatry, which means they treat the feet, ankles, and legs. They can remove heel spurs, reshape bones so the feet and ankles will function better, take out small bones embedded in tendons under your big toe, or correct a hammertoe.
