Education and Training:

Dr. Guild is a New Orleans native, and received his B.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology from Tulane University in 2003. While at Tulane, Dr. Guild earned a T.O.P.S. scholarship and was a member of the Varsity Football team (1999). 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. While there, he also received the Norma C. Ragland award for academic excellence. 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. He was exposed to state-of-the-art techniques in direct anterior hip replacement, minimally invasive hip and knee replacement, outpatient total joint replacement, and complex primary and revision joint replacement. During his fellow year, Dr. Guild was also appointed as an attending physician to the clinical faculty at Mt. Sinai Medical Center Level I trauma center New York, NY. He treated numerous high energy blunt and ballistic orthopaedic trauma patients, as well as serving as a mentor to fellows and residents at Mt. Sinai.

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 developing a contemporary outpatient total joint replacement center at both Northside Hospital Atlanta and Peachtree Orthopaedic Surgery Center. Dr. Guild is one of the first surgeons in the state of Georgia to routinely perform outpatient total hip and knee replacements with patients returning home from the hospital the same day of surgery.

In 2016, Dr. Guild was recruited to join  the faculty of the Emory Orthopaedics and Spine Center as a Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery in the subspecialty Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction. Dr. Guild continues to perform outpatient primary hip and knee replacements at the Emory Orthopaedic and Spine hospital, as well as complex revision cases.
