Orthopaedic Associates is now CONA

Tribute for CONA’s Dr. Michael Henderson

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one of our physicians, Dr. Michael Henderson. A native of Spartanburg, Dr. Henderson moved back home after completing his Foot and Ankle fellowship at The Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland to join Orthopaedic Associates, PA where his father also practiced.

Dr. Henderson was in practice for over twenty five years during which he participated in our Sports Medicine Team by serving as team physician for Spartanburg High School. He was dedicated to being there for the students and was on the sidelines at every football game for the Spartanburg High School team. Dr. Henderson served his community of patients well taking time and great care with each patient. Dr. Michael Henderson will be greatly missed.
