When a knee or hip is so badly damaged by injury or disease that it can’t be repaired, it can often be replaced with an artificial joint, usually made of metal and plastic. The most common joints replaced are hips and knees. Seventy percent of joint replacements are performed because arthritis has caused the joint to stiffen and become painful to the point where normal daily activities are no longer possible. The joint replacement program at FirstHealth began more than 25 years ago and has one of the highest success rates in the country. FirstHealth orthopaedic surgeons perform both full and partial joint replacements. Don Padgett, II, president of Pinehurst Resort and Country Club underwent hip replacement surgery at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital two years ago. Having relocated to Pinehurst from Akron, Ohio, Padgett has connections at the Cleveland Clinic and could have considered treatment elsewhere. However, he chose Moore Regional for his care, and he’s grateful that he did. Dr. Jason Guevara, board certified orthopaedic surgeon, performed the surgery.
