Biography

Dr. Hambright followed medical school with residency in the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program and a fellowship in Washington University Orthopaedics Joint Preservation, Resurfacing & Replacement Fellowship. He received many awards throughout his undergraduate, graduate, and medical education including being Valedictorian of Granite Hills High School in 2000; the Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarship in 2000; the Stanford Rugby Pete Kemetovich Award in 2005; the NIH Pre-doctoral Intramural Research Training Award in 2009; and the Granite Hills Alumni Golden Eagle Award, 2012. Since then, he’s trained and worked at top hospitals across the country including Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Hospital, and the Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis.

He joined the South Carolina Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center because of the quality surgeons in the practice and their dedication to providing the highest quality of care. A rugby player himself, he understands how difficult it is to be sidelined by an injury.
