Piedmont Joint Replacement Center is dedicated to the care and recovery of patients who have had knee, hip, shoulder replacement and spine procedures.

Our Center brings together an experienced, highly skilled, caring team who specialize in the care of joint replacement and spine patients. Our outstanding orthopaedic surgeons, physicians, nurses and therapists are committed to helping your recovery go smoothly so you can regain a new lease on life.

Our staff has been recognized for their positive attitudes, motivational skill and desire to provide exceptional service. “Our patient satisfaction scores remain in the upper 90th percentile,” said Tony Stewart, BSN, RN, clinical integration coordinator at the Piedmont Joint Replacement Center, “because of our commitment to our patients and to providing every one with exceptional care.”

According to evidenced based research, patients who are well-educated about their procedure and pre and post-op care are more likely to have better surgical outcomes.  Our innovative patient education program and pre-op Joint Camp is wellness focused and features education for patients and their family or caregiver, take-home handbook and DVD, resources and answers to questions and pre and post op exercises, all to make recovery faster and more successful.

Linda E. had her hip replacement at Piedmont Joint Replacement Center. She credits her successful outcome and quick recovery to her excellent surgeon and the caring team at High Point Regional’s Piedmont Joint Replacement Center. “I could not be happier with my care,” said Linda, “My daughter was invited to go to Joint Camp with me and the information we received there gave us peace of mind and helped us prepare for what was to come.  I have recommended Piedmont Joint Replacement to my friends who saw me during my recovery and can see how easily I get around now! AND I am pain free!”

Linda is not alone. Our patients have suffered from joint or spine pain sometimes for years, and when surgical intervention is the best treatment option, Piedmont Joint Replacement provides the highly skilled care needed to start you on your way to recovery and successful rehabilitation.

Piedmont Joint Replacement Center’s patients enjoy private rooms, personalized, private and group therapy, including stair training, use of our car simulator and daily living activities. Patients are encouraged to wear their own clothes rather than hospital gowns and experience recovery with other patients who have had the same procedure and participate in group exercise and social activities, benefitting from the support and encouragement of others. Our special unit provides recovery and rehabilitation separate from the general hospital population, providing much lower risk of infection for those recovering at our Center.

Joint or back pain can deprive you of the normal activities you enjoy.  Diet, exercise and medications may help alleviate pain and discomfort. When they no longer work and you have to consider surgical options, Piedmont Joint Replacement Center is specially designed to meet the unique needs of patients needing joint replacement or spine procedures. We are here for you.

High Point Regional sponsors free seminars about joint and spine pain.  Learn what causes the pain and hear about many of the latest treatments.  Find out tips on diet, exercise, medication and the latest treatment options.
