If you’ve injured your foot, ankle or Achilles tendon in a sports-related event or a fall, or if you have a repetition injury, stress fracture or plantar fasciitis, our team of board-certified orthopaedists and podiatrists has more than 75 years of combined experience. They have advanced training in arthroscopy, sports injuries and minimally invasive surgery.
We offer expertise in both non-surgical and surgical treatments for hand, wrist and elbow conditions including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and sports-related injuries. When surgery is necessary, our hand surgeons are board-certified and have received fellowship training in hand surgery at some of the country’s most prestigious medical centers.
If you have experienced a hip or knee injury or suffer from chronic hip or knee pain, Roper St. Francis Healthcare offers extensive expertise to evaluate and treat your condition.

Recognizing our quality care and outstanding outcomes in hip and knee care, Blue Cross Blue Shield has designated both Roper Hospital and Roper St. Francis Mt. Pleasant Hospital as Blue Distinction Centers for Knee and Hip Replacements, and US News and World Report designated Roper Hospital as “high performing” for hip fractures, hip replacements and knee replacements.

If shoulder pain or a sports-related injury is affecting your daily activities, we have the region’s largest group of shoulder specialists. We were first in the region to use the ExactechGPS® system that gives highly-precise 3D modeling for use in shoulder surgery, and were the first in South Carolina and second in the nation to use the Equinoxe® Humeral Replacement Prosthesis that provides advanced joint stabilization in complex procedures.
