Our Practice

On-Site X-Ray

Central Carolina Orthopaedic Associates*, PLLC (CCOA) was founded by Dr. Andrew P. Bush in 2007 when our first location opened in Sanford. In August of 2011 we expanded our practice into Chatham County and opened our Pittsboro location.


Both of our locations boast a complete x-ray suite including state-of-the art digital imaging which provides immediate high definition x-ray images. Our practice also utilizes a CCHIT-certified EHR (electronic health records) system.

We are committed to providing the best possible care in orthopaedics and sports medicine in our communities.
