August 2019 – Drs. Glen Feltham and Andrea Gale, of Specialty Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine (SpecOrtho), have been named the official team doctors for Clover schools, York schools, and Rock Hill HS for the upcoming 2019 – 2020 school year. Our doctors are excited to support the local athletes, to ensure they get the on-the-field and follow-up care they need!
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.”

Dr. Glen Feltham is proud to be a board member for the SCOA (South Carolina Orthopedic Association). In March 2019 he attended a meeting in Columbia with our Governor, Henry McMaster and local legislators. Dr. Feltham enjoyed the day, saying “It was great to meet our state representatives and have the opportunity to discuss pending legislation regarding Health Care in South Carolina. It was a great day on the Hill.”
