Call us today to learn about how our Joint Camp may help you.
Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center is dedicated to providing exceptional care to patients who suffer from debilitating
joint diseases, disorders and injuries.
Patients who come to Thomasville Medical Center's Joint Camp receive more
than a knee or hip replacement. They also experience a return to the activities
that bring joy to their life—gardening, family activities, traveling, golf.
In less than a week after surgery, Joint Camp participants begin their physical
therapy, share meals, and victories with the Joint Camp team and start a process
that enables them to lead happier, more active lives.
Joint Camp patients have another advantage, too—an open door policy that permits
family members to spend as much time with you as their schedule permits.
Joint Camp caters to the needs of patients in a unique atmosphere. You’re on a first-name
basis with your doctors, nurses, and physical therapists. There’s a home-like setting
with comfortable furnishings for visiting family.
In this atmosphere of camaraderie, caring, and sharing, patients receive comprehensive
treatment and group support. They share in their successes and help each other in
their setbacks. They recover more quickly and go home sooner to the people they
love and the things they love to do.
Orthopedic surgeons who care for patients in Joint Camp are among the most
highly-skilled and experienced. All are board-certified in orthopedic surgery and
received special training in hip and knee replacements.
The nurses and physical therapists at our Joint Camp are an elite
group—hand-picked for their clinical experience, positive attitudes and expert
abilities. They work closely with your physician to design a program for your personal
situation and spend the entire week with you and your family.
