Geoffrey Connor, MD
“It is my philosophy to maintain or return a patient to their desired level of function and activity as quickly as possible. I do not believe in treating a patient based solely on age, lab results, or x-rays, but rather focus on a patient’s desire to participate in sports, work, and activities of daily life regardless of chronological age. To accomplish this I work in close coordination with the patient, staff, coaches, and therapists to define and achieve our goals.” – Dr. Geoffrey Connor
Dr. Connor was raised in Hartsville, South Carolina and graduated Cum Laude in Biology from Wake Forest University, where he also played intercollegiate Rugby. He received his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and completed his surgical internship and orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he trained with world-renowned sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews.
He went on to complete a fellowship in orthopaedic sports surgery at the Atlanta Sports Medicine Center where he participated in caring for the Atlanta Falcons of the NFL and Atlanta Thrashers of the NHL. Dr. Connor specializes in minimally invasive surgeries including arthroscopic reconstruction of the elbow, knee, and shoulder.
Dr. Connor founded D1 Sports Medicine in 2010 in affiliation with D1 Sports Training in an effort to bridge the gap between orthopaedic sports medicine and performance athletic training. The resulting medical and surgical practice represents a first of its kind entity which provides athletes with any and all health and performance services they could need under one roof.
