I moved to the United States from Zimbabwe in 1997 and completed high school in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I attended Furman University where I played tennis while majoring in Health & Exercise Science. I then earned my medical degree from Emory University School of Medicine and completed my residency at the University of Chicago. Following this, I completed a fellowship in hip and knee replacement surgery at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, California. I have since moved back to the east coast to be closer to family.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cameron "My goal is to get to know you and understand the impact your hip or knee pain is having on your overall health and function.  I also want to understand your goals of treatment. Ultimately we work together to manage your arthritis conservatively and only consider surgical intervention when conservative treatment has failed."

in Simpsonville |
Dr. Cameron replaced my left hip, and I'm completely pleased with the outcome. I suffered with severe hip pain, often barely able to walk, for nearly 9 years. Now, 6 weeks and 1 day post-op I am walking without a limp, without pain, and stopped using my cane 10 days again. I had almost no pain in the immediate post-op hours, and no pain at all since discharge from the hospital. Dr. Cameron is soft spoken, clear, direct and professional. Additionally, the care I received post-op was outstanding.
