Dr. Geier is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist in Charleston, South Carolina. He is board-certified in both orthopaedic surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

After spending eight years as Director of Sports Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina, Dr. David Geier wished to return to private practice. He formed Sports Medicine Specialists of Charleston in 2014 so that he could share his many years of experience in sports medicine with his neighbors in Mount Pleasant and the surrounding area.

An active member of the community, Dr. Geier served for many years as the head physician for the Family Circle Cup, as well as for the Charleston Battery. Considered a leading expert in injury prevention, he writes a column in The Post and Courier and is a regular contributor – via traditional and social media – to the national conversation about sports safety. He and his family live in Charleston and, not surprisingly, are all huge sports fans.
