Carolina Joint and Arthritis in Wilmington, North Carolina, is the premier provider of orthopedic regenerative medicine and nonsurgical treatments for musculoskeletal injuries and diseases.
Orthopedic surgeon Austin Yeargan III, MD, was the first to introduce regenerative therapies in the United States and wrote the first technique guides that have been adopted worldwide. Today, he remains a leader in cellular technology.
Since the beginning, Dr. Yeargan has followed his patients, tracked their results, researched cellular biology, and continued to refine and create new regenerative medicine therapies. He developed advanced techniques that improve the effectiveness of orthobiologics, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and autologous bone marrow aspirate concentrate (ABMAC).
Using the body’s natural healing ability, he took signaling cell therapy to a new level, creating treatments like the Nanoplasty® and Mechanical Axis Deviation Procedure (NAMAD).
Though the team treats arthritis in all the major joints, patients with knee arthritis seek Dr. Yeargan’s NAMAD treatment for its ability to regenerate new cartilage. With NAMAD and other advanced nonsurgical therapies, many patients find an effective knee replacement alternative.
Carolina Joint and Arthritis has helped many patients overcome knee and shoulder pain. In fact, Dr. Yeargan was the first specialist to use cell therapy for rotator cuff tears.
While regenerative therapies are highly successful for treating tendonitis, the team at Carolina Joint and Arthritis also offers other advanced treatments, such as the Tenex Health TX procedure (Tenex) that uses painless ultrasound to remove damaged tendon tissues and stimulate healing.
Carolina Joint and Arthritis takes pride in operating a leading-edge clinic that truly cares for each patient’s well-being and provides evidence-based treatments. Their intensive research and medical skills ensure that their nonsurgical treatments are of the highest quality, safe, and deliver proven results.

Doctor Yeargan was invited by Doctor Anthony Atala to lecture on orthopedic regenerative medicine techniques at the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine. Doctor Yeargan collaborates with his peers and colleagues at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado where he completed an orthopedic sports medicine fellowship in 2005. He has frequently served as lead author on published scientific literature contributing to the global knowledge base on orthopedic immunobiologics and regenerative orthopedic surgery.
