For more than 25 years, Dr. Frank "Spike" Phillips has committed his career to bringing the best orthopaedic care available to the Gaffney community. However, Dr. Phillips' desire to serve started much earlier. "I felt a calling to become a doctor for as far back as I can remember," Dr. Phillips said, adding that his speciality combined that desire with another love. "I was always involved in athletics, so orthopaedics was a natural fit."
Known to many of his patients simply as Dr. Spike, Dr. Phillips says he particularly enjoys how orthopaedics allows him to see results in the lives of his patients after treatments. "It is a specialty that allows me to restore function in patients wanting to maintain an active lifestyle, as well as improving the quality of life for many patients suffering from painful musculoskeletal conditions."
While he enjoys all corners of orthopaedics, Dr. Phillips has a special fondness for sports medicine. "I especially enjoy knee and shoulder arthroscopy, as well as total hip and total knee replacements," he said. He gets plenty of opportunity to educate the community about the importance of safety in sports as a team physician for both Gaffney High School and Blacksburg High School.
"I enjoy practicing in a small community like Gaffney where our patients are our friends and neighbors," Dr. Phillips said. "I have been able to develop longstanding relationships with many patients and have had the opportunity to treat multiple generations." Outside of work, Dr. Phillips enjoys spending time with his wife, Becca. They both love it when their five grown children make it home for a family dinner or other activity.
