Dr. Felmly is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, is a fellow with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and is a member of the Southern Medical Association, the South Carolina Medical Association and the South Carolina Orthopaedic Association.

“Growing up in a country practice taught me that when the phone rings, you have to say yes, so you can’t tell the patient I’ll see you in six weeks. So generally, my care team will try to see our patients as soon as we can physically get them in the office to see them.”
