Mission Hospital's Orthopedic Program
One in four Americans has a musculoskeletal impairment; this includes bone, joint, muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries and conditions such as arthritis or osteoporosis. That's one reason why Mission Hospital's Orthopedic Program-the largest hospital-based orthopedic program in North Carolina-is so important to our region. We offer superb medical and surgical care that includes experienced board certified surgeons and excellent technology.
Mission Hospital's Orthopedic Joint Replacement program is in the top 15 nationwide for volume of procedures performed annually. Our hip and knee replacement surgery program is a Blue Distinction Center SM, a distinction given by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina based on nationally endorsed quality measures.

Minimally invasive methods including arthroscopy are our surgical standard when possible, which may mean reduced pain, shorter recovery, and less scarring.
