Fred E. Benedict, M.D.

Dr. Fred Benedict was raised in Kent, Ohio. He began private practice in Thomasville, NC in 1988 and later moved to Raleigh in 1992 where he has been working in private practice. He was one of the first surgeons in Raleigh to perform reverse total shoulder replacements for patients that have large rotator cuff tears and arthritis. He has over 20 years of experience with arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, knee, wrist, ankle, and elbow. He has extensive experience with minimally invasive total joint replacements of the hip, knee, and shoulder and complex revision surgeries. He also does general orthopaedics and is very experienced with surgical and non-surgical management of most upper and lower extremity degenerative conditions and injuries.

Dr. Benedict is very willing and capable of taking care of multiple problems at the same time. He is very aware of the high cost of medical care today and always tries to keep that in mind when prescribing medications and ordering tests to keep patients costs as low as practically possible. He always tries to take the time going over various options and alternatives when treating patient’s problems. During his free time he enjoys all forms of motor racing and is an avid motorsports enthusiast.
