Choosing a joint replacement provider? 

Ease into excellence with a Covenant Joint Center:

Why I chose a Covenant Joint Center

“It’s so rewarding to see how far my mobility has come since getting my new knee. I highly recommend anyone who needs to have a total knee, do it sooner rather than later.  Life is so much better when you’re in the game rather than on the sidelines.  My experience at Parkwest certainly has me back in the game.”  – Tim Boyd of Lenoir City

“The pain control was good.  If you pushed a button, you could count the time in seconds before someone responded.   The staff at the Methodist Joint Replacement Center understand excellence.”  – Pete Leitnaker of Kingston
