Jeffrey A. Guy, MD, a native of California, earned his undergraduate degree from San Diego State University, where he played collegiate baseball. He received his medical degree and completed his residency training at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. While in Boston, he completed fellowships in trauma surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital and pediatric sports medicine at Boston Children's Hospital. He finished his training with a fellowship in sports medicine under the direction of Drs. James Andrews and Bill Clancy at the American Sports Medicine Institute in Birmingham, Alabama.

Dr. Guy currently serves as a clinical professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine and as director of the University of South Carolina Sports Medicine Center.

In addition to USC, he is the team physician to more than 20 Columbia area high schools, 10 area middle schools, two professional dance companies and six colleges and universities. His interest in improving the health of athletes in the community inspired him to establish the S.M.A.R.T. program at the University of South Carolina, a community effort that reaches out to athletic programs in the greater Columbia area and provides free pre-participation physicals to schools and their student athletes. He has served as Director of the S.M.A.R.T. program since its founding in 2001.

Dr. Guy currently sits on many professional associations including the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, American Sports Medicine Institute Fellowship Society, Clinical Orthopaedic Society, and the South Carolina Medical Association. He has also presented at over 130 symposiums for professional associations including the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, South Orthopaedic Association, College of Athletic Trainers Society, American College of Sports Medicine, and the National Athletic Trainers Association. In August of 2008, he was a team surgeon for the Olympic Games in Beijing, China. In 2011, he was honored by the South Carolina Medical Association with the Physician of the Year award.
