Orthopedic care

Orthopedists are doctors who take care of the entire musculoskeletal system. They diagnose and treat conditions such sprains, strains, broken bones, arthritis and osteoporosis.

Hip and knee surgery

Your hips and knees are key to stabilization and mobility. Since surgery can be sometimes necessary to keep them functioning as they should, the severity of your condition will ultimately determine whether you need a total or partial replacement. Regardless of which procedure you may need, we always prioritize the use of minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery. Using a series of tiny incisions, this technique gives you the chance for enhanced function, with minimal scarring, a faster recovery and a shorter hospital stay. Thanks to the combination of our experienced team and advanced prosthetics approaches, our hip and knee preservation surgeries usually only require a one-to-two-day hospital stay.

Orthopedic trauma care

Our hospital is home to Western North Carolina's only team of fellowship-trained orthopedic trauma surgeons, as well as the region's only designated Level II Trauma Center. We offer 24-hour coverage, and are eager to meet with you when you have experienced an emergency, are considering an elective surgery or have a follow-up appointment for a previous visit. Our trauma specialists also work in close coordination with both our postoperative inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient physical therapy teams, in order to get you on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

Pediatric orthopedic care

Our hospital has dedicated pediatric units to treat your children with the same level of care that we treat adults. As your body develops and grows into itself, your younger years become more important, so issues affecting your kids need to be addressed immediately to avoid long-term damage. The pediatric orthopedic unit is led by a team of specialists with extensive knowledge regarding the foundations of and remedies for issues affecting the growth patterns of children and adolescents.

Total shoulder replacement

At Mission Hospital, our orthopedic surgeons perform more total shoulder replacements than any other hospital in Western North Carolina. A total shoulder replacement procedure replaces damaged cartilage and your shoulder bone with a prosthesis. This procedure can result in significant pain relief and a more natural range of movement, allowing you to quickly return to daily activities, light labor and sporting activities, such as yoga, swimming and golf.

Walk-in orthopedic and sports medicine clinic

This clinic is geared towards athletes aged 12 and older. The mission of the clinic is to offer immediate injury evaluation, treatment and management for musculoskeletal disorders, sports injuries and sports-related concussions.

We understand that injuries don’t always happen during normal business hours, so we offer early morning office hours and convenient walk-in appointments so you can receive care on the same day that you need it: no appointment required.

Staffed by experienced, fellowship-trained primary care sports medicine physicians, we offer diagnostic imaging and nonoperative care for sprains, strains, fractures and work injuries. Our primary focus is on helping you quickly and safely return to regular activities. Common conditions we treat in the walk-in clinic include:
