If you’ve recently suffered an injury while playing sports, have started experiencing muscle and joint pain, or are looking to treat an ongoing orthopedic concern, feel confident in your care at Novant Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine—the premiere location for orthopedic healthcare. All patients can rest assured that they will receive personalized diagnoses and treatment plans and will be treated safely and quickly in order to get back to enjoying the activities they love.
Established in August 2014, Novant Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine originally opened with physicians William G. Ward M.D., and Mark L. Schweppe, M.D., and only one location. Currently practicing out of three locations in Winston-Salem, Clemmons, and King, Novant Orthopedics has grown to become what is now a group of ten orthopedic surgeons, one primary care sports medicine physician, and ten physician’s assistants. At its Winston-Salem and Clemmons locations, patients benefit from quick and efficient walk-in access for any urgent needs. All three locations offer subspecialty coverage and treatment for any orthopedic condition, including sports medicine, musculoskeletal oncology, joint reconstruction, pediatrics, foot and ankle, hand and upper extremity, and trauma care.
Novant Orthopedics and Sports Medicine provides patients on-site services such as joint injections, including fluoro and ultrasound guided injections, and x-ray technology. Physicians and surgeons also perform minor in-office procedures and surgeries that allow patients to directly visit the clinic, rather than the hospital. Patients at Novant Orthopedics can also receive casting and durable medical equipment fitting and education. Because the team at Novant Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine wants each patient to get moving again as quickly as possible, many procedures can be performed using minimally invasive options. In some cases, patients can return to the serenity of their homes almost immediately following their procedures. Advanced technology such as robotic-assisted surgeries offered at the practice can be used to carefully and efficiently perform complex procedures such as joint replacements.
In addition to its cutting-edge technology and the convenience of each location, what makes Novant Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine the premiere Triad location for orthopedic conditions and sports medicine injuries is its emphasis on making patients feel comfortable, cared for, and confident in the treatment they receive. Upon arrival, the front desk team at each location recognizes that patients are often not at their best when in excruciating pain due to injury and are adept at treating all visitors with a sense of urgency. The front desk team is well versed in greeting all patients with a warm smile, along with a friendly demeanor while scheduling patients’ visits via telephone.
Clinical team members at Novant Orthopedics consist of certified medical assistants (CMAs), athletic trainers, radiology technologists, registered nurses (RNs) and orthopedic technicians to ensure that patients are carefully listened to and treated with compassion and empathy. Their teamwork throughout each patient’s visit helps put patients at ease in times of pain and distress. Additionally, the referral team works diligently to guarantee that if a patient needs further diagnostic testing, rehabilitation, or surgery, authorizations will be done in a timely manner and will be scheduled to meet the patients’ needs. The team at Novant Orthopedics recognizes that the need for surgery can be a stressful time for patients. In situations where surgery is recommended, the surgery scheduling team utilizes a human-centered approach to thoroughly coordinate individual patient care with Clemmons Medical Center, Medical Park Hospital, Clemmons Outpatient Surgery Center, and Forsyth Medical Center in order to help all patients have a seamless transition into their surgical journey and to give patients peace of mind.
