Biography

Dr. Ralph Salzer, a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, established Beaufort’s first orthopaedic practice and in the more than 28 years since then has performed thousands of knee and hip replacements. A New Orleans native, he received his medical degree from Tulane University where he also completed both his residency and internship at university-affiliated hospitals. He completed additional sports medicine-focused training at the Hughston Clinic.

Dr. Salzer has a broad range of interests within orthopedics. Whenever possible, he first seeks non-operative treatment to correct dynamic problems and improve conditioning and flexibility before considering surgical treatment. His surgical interests include knee arthroscopy and reconstruction as well as rotator cuff disorders stemming from impingement. He also has a strong interest and expertise in hand surgery, treating a wide variety of hand disorders.

With a laser focus on ongoing professional development, Dr. Salzer continually works to advance his personal clinical techniques and practice management through extensive and ongoing continuing medical education. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Medical Association and South Carolina Orthopaedic Association.
