Biography

Dr. Guild is a New Orleans native, and received his B.S. from Tulane University in 2003. He completed medical school at L.S.U. Health Sciences Center New Orleans (2007), and was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha, the National Honor Medical Society. After medical School, Dr. Guild completed internship and orthopaedic surgical residency at Emory University and was recognized for scoring in the 97th and 99th percentile on orthopaedic in-training testing.

He continued subspecialty training, completing a fellowship at the prestigious Insall Scott Kelly Institute for Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction at Lenox Hill Hospital New York, NY.  Dr. Guild joined Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic in 2013 where he continued to foster a high volume total joint practice, publishing several peer reviewed articles, and developed a contemporary outpatient total joint replacement center. Dr. Guild is one of the first surgeons in the state of Georgia to routinely perform outpatient total hip and knee replacements.
