Joint Specialist Dr. John Moore is proud to offer Knee Replacement and Hip Replacement Surgery to Lee County
As we age our joints begin to show signs of decades of use. The daily aches and pains are inevitable, but chronic pain from a damaged hip or knee or other orthopaedic problem can really change your life. It can keep you from doing the things, such as playing golf or simply going for long walks, that you’ve always loved. Fortunately, you can find a solution just a little over 40 minutes away in Pinehurst. There you’ll find the orthopaedic expertise of John Moore and Pinehurst Surgical Orthopaedic & Joint Replacement Center.

Here’s a brief overview of our services:
Whether you need knee or hip replacement or arthroscopy, whether you’ve a torn ligament or a bone problem, if it involves the joints or bones, Dr. Moore understands its function and why it’s causing you so much pain.
Outpatient Joint Replacement Surgery
Our patients love our state-of-the-art surgical center. We offer outpatient joint replacement with a concierge experience.
Total Knee Replacement
When you feel how great your new knee is, your only question will be “Why did I wait so long to do it?” This surgery provides complete pain relief to over 90 percent of knee replacement patients worldwide.
Total Hip Replacement
If your damaged hip cartilage keeps you from hiking the beautiful trails in North Carolina or from even sleeping, there’s no reason to live with the pain. Dr. Moore’s hip replacements feature a far shorter recovery and rehabilitation period than you would expect.
Minor aches and pains are one thing, osteoarthritis quite another. Osteoarthritis, known as “wear and tear arthritis,” can be debilitating. Dr. Moore can perform a partial or complete replacement of a knee or hip to rectify the degeneration.
This form of arthritis affects the kneecap, where the cartilage behind the kneecap has deteriorated and become chronically inflamed. Patients may even have bone on bone contact. Dr. Moore may use arthroscopy, a kneecap alignment, or knee replacement to correct the damage.
Our bursae provide cushioning for the bones, tendons, and ligaments. Overuse a joint and you’ll know it through the inflammation of bursitis. Dr. Moore provides various non-surgical treatments for hip bursitis, but occasionally when the inflammation doesn’t resolve, it’s necessary to remove the bursa.
