Orthopedic Surgeon Mans Booth at PGA Tournament - Archived

Stryker Orthopaedics, the Official Joint Replacement Products of the PGA TOUR® and Champions Tour, ended their final stop of 2015 in Cary, NC. Stryker was pleased to bring the Stryker Mobility Zone to the SAS Championship.

Dr. Ralph Carter, board certified orthopedic surgeon with OrthoCarolina Scotland in Laurinburg, was at the Stryker Mobility Zone at the 2015 SAS Championship in Cary, this past Friday.  Dr. Carter interacted with golf fans, answered their joint health questions, and educated them on treatment options for hip and knee pain – including Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery.

This surgery, now offered at Scotland Health Care System, is ideal for those suffering from hip or knee pain who wish to restore mobility in order to return to an active lifestyle. The robotic arm offers several advantages over traditional joint replacement procedures such as: a smaller incision, shorter hospital stay, greater range of motion, and improved implant positioning.

Dr. Carter has provided orthopedic services to the Laurinburg area for over 25 years and has over ten years of experience with computer-assisted navigation orthopedic surgery.
