Joint Camp

Haywood Regional Medical Center offers a comprehensive 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.
