Welcome to the web site of John S. Shields, MD

A little bit about myself...

As a member of the adult reconstruction faculty in the Department of Orthopaedics at Wake Forest Baptist Health, I specialize in hip and knee replacement surgery. Having completed my orthopaedic surgery residency at Wake Forest, I was very familiar with the state of the art facilities, cutting edge medical care, and impeccable faculty and staff that Wake Forest had to offer. Also, having grown up in Danville, VA, I was familiar with the area and interested in coming back and serving the people here. Upon completion of my Adult Reconstruction fellowship at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, MA, I chose to return to Wake Forest Baptist Health as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopaedics.

My staff and I provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment for hip and knee arthritis, as well as other conditions leading to knee and hip replacement or revision surgery. We believe in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Areas of clinical interest and expertise are as follows: Knee Replacement and Hip Replacement, Robotic Partial Knee Replacement, Unicompartmental (partial) Knee Replacement, Minimally Invasive Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery, Muscle Sparing Posterior Approach Hip Replacement, Revision Knee and Revision Hip replacement, and Total Joint Replacement.

My clinic is located at Davie Medical Center in Bermuda Run, NC. Surgeries are performed at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center (http://www.wakehealth.edu/Orthopaedic-Services/). We pride ourselves in making each patient's visit exceptional from the time they walk into the front door.

Whether you are interested in treatment, information to expand your knowledge, or an evaluation to know your options, feel free to contact us at 336-716-WAKE to make an appointment today. https://www.wakehealth.edu/Request-an-Appointment-Online/
