Guillaume D. Dumont, MD

Orthopedic Surgery, Sports Medicine
Clinical Associate Professor of Orthopedic Surgery


Guillaume D. Dumont, MD, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip, shoulder and knee injuries at Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center and a clinical assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine.

Dr. Dumont's clinical interests include sports medicine; hip conditions including femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), labral injuries, snapping hip and arthroscopic hip surgery; shoulder instability and dislocations, labrum/rotator cuff injuries and shoulder arthritis; and knee conditions including ligament, meniscus and cartilage injuries.

He is one of few surgeons in the Midlands region with subspecialty training in hip arthroscopy and the treatment of non-arthritic hip injuries. After completing his sports medicine fellowship, Dr. Dumont sought additional expertise in hip arthroscopy and hip preservation with J.W. Thomas Byrd, MD, a pioneer in the field, in Nashville, Tennessee. He is interested in the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement, labral tears, and other conditions affecting the young adult hip.

Dr. Dumont also travelled to the Alps Surgery Institute in Annecy, France, for a fellowship with Laurent Lafosse, MD, a world leader and innovator in arthroscopic shoulder surgery. There, he learned leading-edge techniques in minimally invasive arthroscopic shoulder surgery. The shoulder has served as the basis for Dr. Dumont’s passion for arthroscopic surgery. He enjoys restoring patient function with advanced arthroscopic procedures for treating shoulder instability, labral injuries and rotator cuff injuries.

Dr. Dumont is a native of Montreal, Canada. He earned his undergraduate degree in biochemistry at the University of Tennessee, where he played football, before attending medical school at Emory University in Atlanta. He then completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. During his final year of residency he was selected to serve as chief resident and was awarded the W. Brandon Carrell Distinguished Physician Award for outstanding patient care. He then completed a fellowship in sports medicine and shoulder surgery at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, where he helped care for athletes of all levels, including the New England Patriots and Boston Bruins. Dr. Dumont then completed his additional training in hip arthroscopy with J.W. Thomas Byrd at the Nashville Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center in Tennessee.

He is actively involved in clinical research, focusing his efforts on the investigation of injuries and treatments of the shoulder, knee and hip. He has presented research at local and national orthopedic meetings and authored several publications in orthopedic literature. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), and the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA).

Dr. Dumont strives to deliver outstanding care to individuals of all athletic and activity levels. His goal is to help his patients overcome their orthopedic injuries to return to their desired activities and lifestyles.

“One of the most gratifying things for me is seeing someone one year after surgery or treatment, and to see how much better they’re doing. It's great to see that they’re back to their normal activities, whether it's playing golf, on the field on Friday night playing football, or just playing with their kids.”
