Hip, Knee, and Joint Replacement

"I like to plan a strategy that will get my patients back to the lifestyle they desire."

Dr. Ramsey received his bachelor of science degree at Duke University and continued on to obtain his medical degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Upon completion of his medical degree, Dr. Ramsey underwent an internship and residency in orthopedic surgery at Georgetown University Medical Center. After finishing his residency, he completed a fellowship in adult reconstruction and joint replacement at Anderson Orthopaedic Research Institute in Alexandria, Virginia. Dr. Ramsey joined Coastal Orthopedics in 2009. 

Dr. Ramsey currently serves as Medical Director for the Joint Replacement program at Conway Medical Center. He has performed more hip replacements using the direct anterior approach than anyone else in eastern South Carolina. He utilizes this expertise and experience to educate other surgeons by traveling to lecture and demonstrate the techniques in labs, and he occasionally hosts other surgeons at Conway Medical Center who wish to observe the procedure in action.

When not seeing patients in clinic, Dr. Ramsey enjoys spending time with his family, dining out, and going to the beach. He is married, lives in Myrtle Beach, and is the proud father of two sons and one daughter. He also stays active through golf, tennis, and fishing.

"My name is Angela and I'm 48 years old. I had been dealing with a lot of knee pain, swelling and fluid build up in both knees. I was being treated by another doctor in another town, but could never get any relief. So I decided to go for another opinion. Someone told me about Dr. Peter Ramsey, and I went. I found out just how bad my knees were and that I was gonna need full knee replacements. I never dreamed that I would feel the way I do now. The doctor, the staff, and also the love and concern from Coastal Orthopaedics and Conway Medical Center. Dr Ramsey is an awesome doctor and I want to tell him and his staff once again....Thank You!!!" – Angela M. 

"My husband and I have seen Dr. Ramsey, Dr. Mills,  and Tasha Lee. We have had the best experience with these doctors and we are very blessed to have found Coastal Orthopedics. Everyone is so helpful and caring.  We have recommended several of our friends to Coastal, and they have all made appointments to see the doctor they need for their problem. In the past I saw Dr. Taylor who fixed my very painful foot. I saw Dr. Mills; he fixed my hip/back problem, and my husband is scheduled to have hip replacement in a couple of weeks. After the pre-op seminar, we feel very good about this operation. We feel everyone there really cares about helping and doing whatever they can to relieve your pain or discomfort. We feel no matter which doctor we see, we will have the very BEST of care!! Thanks to all of the staff who have taken very good care of us." -- Sharon B. 

"I went to see Dr. Ramsey because of an increase of pain in my right knee. I chose Dr. Ramsey because of the good experience we both had with him when my wife went there to have her knee examined.
He X-rayed my knee and told me what was wrong with it. He explained to me, what all my options were, and did not try to influence me one way or the other.  
He explained that I could try a knee brace to see if that would help, and when that no longer helped, I could try a cortisone shot. He encouraged me to hold off on surgery until it was necessary,... but, left the decision up to me.
Overall, it was a very good experience, and I thank Dr. Ramsey for his help!" – Richard F. 

"Had a right hip replacement, office personnel were wonderful, Conway Medical Center excellent experience and Dr. Ramsey is the best. I am 6 weeks in and feel wonderful the hip replacement was a success and I am pain-free. I would recommend Dr. Ramsey and Conway Medical Center to anyone. Thank you all!" – Marjorie H. 

"I had osteoarthritis in my right hip, unable to stand up straight and waling was very painful. After a hip replacement in June I immediately felt relief! I'm so happy to have my life back. A big thank you to Dr. Ramsey and everyone else involved!" -- Theresa A.

"I received the best care ever. The staff and physicians were very understanding and explained their procedures and the expected outcome. I have been in the medical field for over 50yrs. and I can honestly say, I would refer my friends to this group." – Claretta A. 

"Professional office, professional staff and a positive health care experience. Dr. Ramsey operated on my right hip with excellent results. Office follow-up visits have been easily handled, with proper attention by Dr. Ramsey, his assistant Chris and the rest of the technical staff. I am not overly experienced with major healthcare, but I have been impressed by the operations of Coastal Orthopedics." – Ken J. 

"I had a 6-week follow-up appointment with Dr. Ramsey after a total knee replacement. I felt he was relaxed and ready to answer all my questions. I have recommended him to others and will be sure to come back to him when I am ready for my next knee replacement." – Sharon D. 

"I have complete faith in Dr. Ramsey. He kind of brings a joie de vie approach to orthopedic medicine. I wish we could clone him as a GP and make him my one stop for health care." – John G.
