SpecOrtho patients now have option of Pineville hospital

October 2019 – Our physicians recently received approval to perform surgeries at Pineville Hospital.  Per Dr. Feltham, “Although the majority of our orthopedic surgeries can be performed at free-standing surgery centers, in some instances a hospital outpatient setting is a better option for the patient.  We are excited to be partnering with Atrium at their Pineville location.”  Dr. Gale agrees, adding “We’re glad to be able to provide another high-quality option for our patients.”

Urgent Times Call For Urgent Care

In order to relieve the ER/Urgent Care staff and resources, SpecOrtho is now welcoming walk-in patients with urgent musculoskeletal injuries at our Fort Mill location. Our doctor will see all orthopaedic injuries outside of the back and neck during normal business hours. In order to maintain a safe environment for all, our facility is being cleaned and sanitized regularly and following strict CDC guidelines. Those individuals that are currently sick or have recently been exposed to COVID-19, should go directly to the local Emergency Room or Urgent Care Center for any immediate orthopaedic needs. For appointments or more information, please contact us at 803- 548-6464.


In an effort to comply with CDC recommendations and help keep our patients and staff safe from illness, we are asking all our patients and visitors to follow the guidelines below:

  • If you or someone you have been in contact with has experienced fever, chills, cough, shortness or breath, sneezing or runny nose, please call the office to reschedule your appointment (803-548-6464).
  • Please ensure that the patient is accompanied by no more than one person to minimize overcrowding and exposure to germs.
  • Upon arrival to SpecOrtho, existing patients may check in from their vehicles by calling our front desk at 803-548-6464. We will call or text you to let you know when your exam room is available. This will eliminate overcrowding in the waiting room as well as allowing our staff the proper time to clean and sterilize the exam rooms prior to your visit.
