John Keith


For Dr. John Keith, Jr., it's personal. His patients are his friends. Following in his father's footsteps, Dr. Keith brings a lifetime of skill and experience to Orthopedic Specialties. As a medical student in England, he studied under the inventor of the total hip replacement, Sir John Charnley. 

In Spartanburg, he was the first physician at Spartanburg Regional to perform the Oxford knee replacement. He has served as Chief of Staff at Mary Black Hospital and as an Associate Clinical Professor at MUSC. He is a tennis player and skier, a committed husband, and a devoted father, but this former Eagle Scout, Tarheel, and Wofford Hall of Famer is most at home when helping his patients recover.

Dr. Keith specializes in hand surgery, shoulder arthroscopy, rotator cuff repair, and knee arthroscopy with subspecialty interests including sports medicine, total knee replacement, total hip replacement, total shoulder replacement as well as reverse total shoulder replacement.
