CMC-Mercy Hip and Knee Center

A year and a half after his hip surgery, patient Richard Shipman won the North Carolina state singles tournament in the 65 and older category.

“I’d say I’m close to being where I was before the surgery,” said Richard. “So, as I told Dr. Masonis on my last checkup, ‘you’ve given me my life back.’”

Choose North Carolina’s leader; CMC-Mercy was honored to be the No. 1 Hip and Knee volume hospital in the state,* that translates to greater experience and expertise from our surgeons, clinical and support staffs.
