Guillaume Dumont, MD

Guillaume D. Dumont, MD, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in the treatment of hip, shoulder, and knee injuries and currently serves as a clinical assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine.

Dr. Dumont's clinical interests include sports medicine; hip conditions including femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), labral injuries, snapping hip, gluteus medius tendon injuries, and arthroscopic hip surgery; shoulder instability, dislocations, labrum/rotator cuff injuries, and shoulder arthritis; and knee conditions including ligament, meniscus, and cartilage injuries.

Dr. Dumont is one of few surgeons in the region with subspecialty training in hip arthroscopy and the treatment of non–arthritic hip injuries. He is interested in the treatment and research of femoroacetabular impingement, labral tears, and other conditions affecting the young adult hip.

Dr. Dumont is a native of Montreal, Canada. He earned his undergraduate degree in biochemistry at the University of Tennessee, where he played football, before attending medical school at Emory University in Atlanta. He then completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. During his final year of residency, he was selected as Chief Resident and was awarded the W. Brandon Carrell Distinguished Physician Award for outstanding patient care. He then completed a fellowship in sports medicine & shoulder surgery at Harvard Medical School / Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, where he helped care for athletes of all levels including the New England Patriots and Boston Bruins. After his sports medicine fellowship, he completed additional training at the Nashville Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center with Dr. J.W. Thomas Byrd, a pioneer in the field.

Dr. Dumont also travelled to the Alps Surgery Institute in Annecy, France, for a fellowship with Dr. Laurent Lafosse, a world leader and innovator in arthroscopic shoulder surgery. There, he learned cutting edge techniques in minimally invasive arthroscopic shoulder surgery. He enjoys restoring patient function with advanced arthroscopic procedures for treating shoulder instability, labral injuries, and rotator cuff injuries.

He is actively involved in clinical research, focusing his efforts on the investigation of injuries and treatments of the shoulder, knee and hip. He has multiple ongoing projects focused on the evaluation of care of patients undergoing arthroscopic hip surgery. He has presented research at local, national, and international orthopedic meetings and authored several publications and chapters in orthopedic literature. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA), and the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy (ISHA). Dr. Dumont serves as a peer reviewer for the American Journal of Sports Medicine (AJSM), the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine (OJSM), Arthroscopy: The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery, and the Journal of Hip Surgery (JHS).

Dr. Dumont strives to deliver outstanding care to individuals of all athletic and activity levels. His goal is to help his patients overcome their orthopedic injuries to return to their desired activities and lifestyles.
