Our Periprosthetic Joint Infection Center is a specialized clinic dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infections that occur around joint replacement implants. This center brings together a team of experts in orthopedic surgery, infectious diseases, and other related fields to provide comprehensive care for patients facing these infections.

Periprosthetic joint infections are complex and often require specialized attention. You may find yourself navigating unfamiliar territory when confronted with this uncommon issue, often seeking assistance from orthopedic surgeons who may have limited experience in its treatment. At OrthoCarolina, we've established the Periprosthetic Joint Infection Center within our Hip and Knee Center to specifically address your needs.

Our Center is at the forefront of research, continuously striving to identify the most effective procedures to successfully manage these infections. From advanced irrigation and debridement techniques to intricate implant removal and replacement strategies, our team is equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the complexities of periprosthetic joint infections.

While these infections are rare, they are undeniably serious, impacting less than 1 percent of patients undergoing total joint replacements.

Our multidisciplinary approach ensures that each patient receives comprehensive care, collaborating closely with infectious disease specialists to tailor post-surgical antibiotic treatments for optimal outcomes.
