Don’t Ignore Your Pain
If you’re having nagging pains that you simply can no longer ignore, Dr. Mark Hood of Carolina Orthopedic & Neurosurgical Associates says an appointment with a specialist can do a world of good—and the solution may be simpler than you expect.
“We always try to exhaust every non-operative possibility,” adds Dr. Hood, a hip and knee specialist who completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Indiana University School of Medicine. He also completed an adult-joint reconstruction fellowship at the prestigious OrthoCarolina in Charlotte, North Carolina.
