Haywood Regional Medical Center's orthopedic doctors specialize in general orthopedics, hand surgery, joint replacement and sports medicine.
We are excited to share that HRMC is now also offering robotic-assisted knee replacement surgeries. Robotic-assisted surgery: combines the advantages of traditional methods with innovations while minimizing the drawbacks to patients. This technology is designed to help your surgeon plan and perform your knee replacement surgery with a greater degree of accuracy than is possible with traditional methods.
If you need to find a relief for joint pain, call 800.424.DOCS (3627) to be connected with a local provider.
Haywood Regional Medical Center offers a joint replacement program, Joint Camp, that provides a team-focused approach educating patients about what will occur before, during and after joint replacement surgery. The center integrates efforts between patient and family, the surgeon, pre-op, the operating room, anesthesia, nursing, physical and occupational therapy and pharmacy, to provide a quality experience for joint replacement patients. The result of this integration is increased efficiency and better patient outcomes and satisfaction. Our Joint Camp program allows Haywood County to receive best-in-class joint replacement without having to travel far from home.
