Michael J. Hilts, MD, is board certified in primary care sports medicine and family medicine. His professional interests include sports medicine, family medicine, musculoskeletal ultrasound and functional medicine.

Collaborative and caring, he treats patients as he would family members. For patients with medical or orthopedic problems, he strives to determine the root cause of conditions rather than merely treating symptoms. In addition to nutritional, lifestyle and biomechanical factors, he takes time to understand past personal and family history.

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters and roasting his own coffee beans. He is actively involved in Bible Study Fellowship.

“From a medical standpoint, I have a strong desire to help patients learn to improve their health and well-being without prescription medicine whenever possible. From an orthopedic standpoint, my goal is to improve or resolve conditions without surgery if possible.” – Michael J. Hilts, MD

Dr. Hilts worked me in the next day after another care proves we called and explained their concern. He listened to me and ordered the necessary lab work to possibly r/o another dx. He has been wonderful in updating me via MyChart. In addition, he went above and beyond in providing me with diet information that may be contributing to my inflammatory process. As a RN, one that has worked for Cone Health and being married to a surgeon, I recognize good care vs lazy care by a physician. Dr. Hilts is caring, a good listener and very knowledgeable MD. I hope I don't have to see him again, for another injury, but if I do I'm super happy to be an established pt of his.

I have never seen a doctor I respect more than Dr. Hilts. in my limited time in his care, he has managed to uncover things about my health I would have otherwise never known. I feel he truly listens to your concerns and wants to help get to the root of the problem without medication (if possible) which I appreciate. I think Dr. Hilts falls in the category of an integrative dr who looks at the big picture from a wholistic approach when possible and leaves no stone unturned when looking for a diagnosis. He is always very quick to respond to my concerns/questions on mychart messenger (and it's important to note that it's always HIM to respond, never a nurse -which is nearly unheard of today and much appreciated from a patient's perspective.) I have already recommended him to many friends and would rate him 20 stars if I could! Cone and Piedmont Ortho are very lucky to have such a caring and knowledgeable practitioner in your network and I feel like I got the lottery when I found him.
