The physicians at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas take pride in finding and implementing the best possible solutions to their patients’ orthopaedic problems. We offer the most advanced treatment options for orthopaedic injuries and disorders. Our research and experience have led to significant breakthroughs in the fields of orthopaedics and sports medicine. We treat patients from all walks of life – from recreational and elite athletes to those who share our passion for active living.
The physicians at Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas are experts at designing programs designed to achieve optimal results. The physician, surgeon, therapist, and patient work together as a team toward the goal of full recovery.
When surgery is necessary to correct an orthopaedic disorder or injury, our clinics have state-of the-art operating suites standing nearby. Equipped with the most advanced instrumentation and equipment, these operating rooms are staffed by a highly trained group of nurses who assist the physicians during surgery, and monitor patients in the recovery room. If surgery is recommended, the operative plan and the recovery process are thoroughly explained to the patient by the physician.
We believe that physical rehabilitation is an integral part of a successful recovery, whether it is used as the primary treatment for a disorder, or follows a surgical procedure to enhance the healing process. With this in mind, physical therapists and physicians design individual exercise programs for each patient, so that optimum recovery is achieved as soon as possible.
