It was a love of sports that attracted foot and ankle specialist, Dr. William Corey, to orthopaedics. He states, “I was fairly athletic growing up, playing sports in high school, and that’s what attracted me to orthopaedics and sports medicine. I played basketball, soccer, baseball and ran track.” At Lowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, Dr. Corey treats patients with athletic injuries as well as other conditions related to the bone and muscles. Says a recent patient, “Dr. Corey is a great doctor, he fixed my foot which had been hurt for many years. It was a miracle, after the surgery all was good. Now, after many years later, it is still a great foot. I am so grateful to him.”

In addition to sports injuries, Dr. Corey has a special interest in arthroscopy, arthritis, forefoot and hindfoot reconstruction, and total ankle arthroplasty. He uses the latest advancements in ankle replacement and is trained to aspirate a patient’s bone marrow and use the cells to enhance the healing of a fracture. Says a recent patient, “Dr. Corey was recommended to me as one of the best local orthopaedic surgeons specializing in ankle issues. He thoroughly explained all the pros & cons of my options to repair a torn ligament and tendon. The whole process of diagnosis, surgery, and follow up was professional, and I’m very happy with the outcome!”

A graduate of Wake Forest University and West Virginia University School of Medicine, Dr. Corey is also a member of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society, Charleston County Medical Society, and the South Carolina Medical Association. The surgical specialists at Lowcountry Orthopaedics diagnose and treat all conditions of the foot and ankle, including advanced fracture treatment. The goal is to get patients back on their feet as quickly, painlessly, and safely as possible. States Dr. Corey, “I enjoy helping people stay active or become active again.”
