Robert Horry Sports Medicine at St Joseph Medical Center.
Our group of physicians specialize in orthopedic surgeries and joint replacements. A comprehensive range of services, including state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatments. Every plan of care will be designed specifically for each patient and will combine several different treatment techniques.

Achilles Tendon Tear
Inflammation or minor tears of the tendon that connects the back of the calf to the heel, caused by
overuse or injury.

Ankle Sprains and Ligament Tear
A sprained ankle is a common medical condition where one or more of the ligaments of the ankle is torn
or partially torn. 

Elbow Fracture
A break in one or more of the bones that make up the elbow joint: the humerus (the upper arm bone)
and ulna (the larger of the forearm bones).

Elbow Injury
Injuries to the ligaments, tendons, and muscles of the elbow commonly occurring during sports or
recreational activities, repetitive motion, workplace injuries, or other trauma.

Foot Fractures
When a bone in the foot breaks due to stress or any other condition, it is called a foot fracture. Many
fractures do not require surgery, or even a cast, as they will heal on their own with some support. When
a foot is fractured, the site of the fracture usually is painful and swollen.

Heel Spur
A painful small bony growth or collection of bony growths on the back or underside of the heel.
Hip fracture
A common injury that mainly affects older women who often have underlying osteoporosis, a hip
fracture can be intracapsular (within the joint capsule) or extracapsular (outside the joint capsule).

Hip Pointer
A sports injury in which the point of the hip is deeply bruised and painful.
Knee ligament injuries often the result of an injury or a sudden movement that strains the knee,

causing pain, swelling, and difficulty in walking.

Knee Meniscus Tear
A common knee injury in which the meniscus, a rubbery, C-shaped disc that cushions your knee, is torn,

usually caused by activities involving twisting or turning quickly.

Labral Tear (hip)
A tear in the cartilage surrounding the hip socket, labral tears often cause pain in the groin or front of
the hip during physical activity or bending and rotation of the hip.

Lateral and Medial Epicondylitis
Lateral and medial epicondylitis are overuse injuries that affect the tendons in the elbow. Also known as
tennis elbow and pitcher's or golfer's elbow.

Rotator Cuff Tear
A rotator cuff tear can weaken the shoulder and cause pain and difficulty with daily activities that
involve lifting and rotating the arm.

Shoulder Fracture
The most common shoulder break is a fractured humerus, the upper arm bone between the shoulder
and elbow. It can be fractured near or at the ball of your shoulder joint.

Shoulder Separation
A shoulder injury one of the ligaments that connects the collarbone to shoulder blade is torn and no
longer anchored, often causing the collarbone to move out of position.

Stress Fractures
Stress fractures are common sport injuries, usually caused by overuse, such as increasing the amount or
intensity of an activity too rapidly, or the result of unfamiliar surface, improper equipment, and
increased physical stress.

Tendonitis (arthritis/wrist)
Inflammation of a tendon (the tough cords of tissue that connect muscles to bones) can affect any
tendon, but is most commonly seen in the wrist and fingers; causing swelling, pain, and  discomfort.

Torn Meniscus
A common knee injury in which the meniscus, a rubbery, C-shaped disc that cushions your knee, is torn,
usually caused by activities involving twisting or turning quickly.

Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion (ACDF)
ACDF is to remove a herniated or degenerative disc in the neck. An incision is made in the throat area to
reach the front of the spine. The disc is removed and a graft is inserted to fuse together the bones above
and below the disc. ACDF surgery may be recommend if physical therapy or medications fail to relieve
your neck or arm pain caused by pinched spinal nerves.

Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression can be performed anywhere along the spine from the neck (cervical) to the lower
back (lumbar). The procedure is performed through a surgical incision in the back (posterior). The lamina
is the bone that forms the backside of the spinal canal and makes a roof over the spinal cord. Removing
the lamina and other soft tissues gives more room for the nerves and allows for removal of bone spur​.
