Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic

The Canes Depend on Us! Shouldn’t You?

Our roots in providing orthopaedic medicine to central and eastern NC can be traced back to 1919. The original founders, Dr. Hugh Thompson, Dr. Walter Hunt, and Dr. Tom Dameron named the practice Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic in 1959. These physicians were pioneers and innovators in the field of orthopaedic surgery, and that tradition has continued throughout our existence.

The orthopaedic surgeons and staff of Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic (ROC) are committed to providing the highest quality musculoskeletal care available in the Triangle and surrounding regions of central North Carolina.

Our teams of orthopaedic professionals utilize the advantage of a group practice to provide convenient, cost-effective, patient oriented medical care.
