Welcome to Fayetteville's top choice for comprehensive orthopaedic care.


With the rising number of covid cases, some of our policies have changed. Patients will only be allowed ONE person to accompany them for their appointment. PARENTS: if your child is being seen, please note that we only allow ONE parent to accompany them and no siblings or additional children will be permitted to enter the back office. Please make appropriate accommodations for your particular situation. Please understand that it is our goal to keep our patients, staff, and community as safe as possible during these uncertain times. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding!

Fayetteville Orthopaedic Clinic PA was founded in 1974 by Dr. James Askins. He was later joined by Dr. Robert Logel (’76) and Dr. James Johnson (’78) at their then new office on Melrose Road.

Dr. W. Dickson Schaefer became a partner in 2001, Dr. Christopher Barnes joined in 2003, and Dr. Daniel McBrayer came on board in 2008.

Our current office was constructed in 2009 and the practice grew further with the addition of Dr. Kimberly Barrie in 2011.

Presently, Drs. Schaefer, Barnes, McBrayer, and Barrie along with Michael Dilello PAC provide the Fayetteville Community and the Cape Fear region with the expert, compassionate, professional care it has come to expect over the past four and a half decades.

"I had my second visit to Fayetteville Orthopaedics yesterday. Not one aspect of my visit was less than a 10. The employee at check-in was friendly and professional. She knew her job!

I then had x-rays and, again, the staff was professional and I was treated fantastically.

I saw P.A. Dilello who is more than good. He asks about things like your home situation and everything that could be a problem with your healing. This is generally the least asked question and is one of the most important. Without a doubt he is the finest PA that I have ever seen.

I love these people."
