      If everything goes well, fine. If there is a problem, it is very difficult to get the needed attention. Initial visit: Dr. swept into room, literally stayed less than 2 minutes, was gone. PAs do most of his patient contact. They need more training. NO ONE answers the phone, or returns calls. Even after a trip to the emergency room when my knee cap displaced, the emergency room DR couldn't reach a person in their office. I never got a call back. Next time, disaster. Good surgeon? Probabl

      Adore Dr. Carter!!! Got my new hip in September 2015, went back to work in 3 weeks and now I am back to Hot Yoga 3 days per week and lifting weights one day per week. I got my life back and am forever grateful to Dr. Carter!!!

      Dr. Carter was wonderful. He made me feel so relaxed and confident in his ability to replace my knee. I had a bad experience with my right knee and was apprehensive about having my right knee replaced. The surgery results has been amazing. No matter what type of surgery you have, there will be pain but the pain was so much better than I had before. I recommend Dr. Carter to anyone that need Orthopedic Surgery. Don't worry! Dr. Carter will take good care of you!

      My hip replacement was a total success! The entire process was excellent, especially at the hospital. I have my life back and healed very quickly, was walking 1/2 mile by two weeks after surgery.
      in Knotts Island, NC |
      2010 - Hip replacement-no pain, driving in 15 days. 2011 - Rotor Cuff surgery - injured in fall. Complete use of arm returned. 2012 - Knee replacement - complete recovery, I followed every order, did every therapy and the hip, shoulder and knee all work fine. Good for another million miles. Dr Carter is an awesome doctor.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Carter says...

      A pioneer in his field, he introduced many firsts in the Hampton Roads area, including the direct anterior approach to total hip replacement (Jiffy Hip) as well as robotic knee surgery (Makoplasty), both of which he has performed more cases than any other surgeon in the area. He is constantly seeking new and innovative techniques including improved pain management and accelerated recovery protocols and comprehensive blood management programs to the area.
