Get high-quality care for your bones, joints, and muscles from UNC Rockingham Health Care. You’ll benefit from our partnership with UNC Orthopedics & Sports Medicine at Eden, which gives you access to complete orthopedic care and surgery close to home.
Conditions We Treat
Turn to board-certified UNC orthopedic specialists if you experience symptoms and conditions, such as:
Your specialist will give you a physical examination and may use imaging tests, such as computerized tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, or X-ray, to help diagnose the cause of your symptoms.
Your orthopedist may want you to try nonsurgical methods to improve your symptoms. These treatments may include:
- Anti-inflammatory medicine – Lessen inflammation, swelling, and pain
- Bone marrow aspiration – Takes a small amount of bone marrow fluid out of your pelvic bone and injects the cells into another joint to rebuild tissue
- Physical therapy – Improves strength and movement using exercises
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy – Removes plasma from your blood to inject into injured tendons, muscles, or joints to promote healing
- Steroid injections – Reduce swelling and pain in joints and tissue
Procedures & Surgeries
If you don’t get relief from nonsurgical treatments, you and your doctor may decide orthopedic surgery is your best treatment option. When possible, your orthopedic surgeon will perform your procedure using minimally invasive techniques. That means you’ll have a smaller incision, less pain, and a faster recovery than if you had traditional surgery.
Choose UNC Rockingham for safe, exceptional orthopedic procedures and surgeries, including:
Precision Total Knee Replacement
When you need surgery to replace the damaged part of your knee, trust your UNC orthopedic surgeon to choose the best implant for you. You’ll benefit from our careful surgical planning.
Using advanced imaging and computer-based tools, your surgeon makes a precise “map” of your knee. The map helps your surgeon determine the position, size, and fit for your knee implant before surgery. Preplanning lets your surgeon perform accurate surgery in less time with a better outcome for you.
Total Joint Class
Prepare for your surgery and recovery by attending the Total Joint Class at UNC Rockingham hospital. You’ll learn what to expect before, during, and after surgery from rehabilitation therapists. We’ll register you for the next Total Joint Class when your doctor’s office schedules your surgery at UNC Rockingham.
Rehabilitation After Surgery
Heal as quickly and safely as possible with specialized rehabilitation services at UNC Rockingham. You’ll start recovering in the hospital with help from our physical and occupational therapists. After you leave the hospital, you may continue therapy on an outpatient basis to improve your mobility and skills. Outpatient means you visit the facility for care and go home afterward.
