Dr. William Corey loved sports from an early age. “I was fairly athletic growing up, playing sports in high school, and that's what attracted me to orthopedics. I played basketball, soccer, baseball and did track.” And, yes, he probably would have played football, if his small school had a team. Now specializing in orthopedic medicine, he treats athletic injuries as well as other issues relating to the bone and muscles. He works within a large practice – Lowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine – which allows him to focus on patients with foot and ankle problems. That includes bunions, hammertoes, claw toes, flat feet and other foot deformities as well as Achilles tendon problems, ankle arthritis and sprains. Plus, 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.
