Keith Corpus, MDOrthopaedic Sports Medicine Surgeon
As a former high school and avid recreational athlete, Dr. Corpus has developed a unique understanding of the demands and anxieties faced by injured athletes at all levels. His clinical expertise includes minimally invasive and reconstructive techniques of the shoulder, hip, and knee.
After graduating from Limestone Community High School as class valedictorian, Dr. Corpus attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he studied Molecular and Cellular Biology, graduating as a member of the Bronze Tablet (top 3% of graduating class). In medical school at Rush Medical College in Chicago, he was selected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society and the Gold Humanism Honor Society.
He then pursued his Orthopaedic Surgery residency at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, which has been unanimously considered the top orthopedic residency in the U.S. for over a decade and is ranked the #1 orthopaedic hospital by US News and World Report. There, he studied and mastered the latest orthopaedic surgical techniques under the leaders in the field.
After completion of his residency training, Dr. Corpus continued his medical education in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the OrthoCarolina Sports Medicine and Shoulder/Elbow Fellowship. While in Charlotte, Dr. Corpus was able to hone his skills in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery of the knee, hip, and shoulder. In addition,
