The Hawkins Foundation and the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas are helping to shape the future of orthopaedic medicine. Once thought to be only for athletes, orthopaedic medicine is now recognized as a building block to a healthy lifestyle for all people, of all ages and from all walks of life. Good health is becoming even more important as the Baby Boomer works to stay more active and maintain a healthy, independent lifestyle.

Strong bones, healthy tissue and functioning joints make it possible for all of us to continue embracing life now and for future generations. At the Hawkins Foundation and Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas, we want to help make this possible!
