About Our Team

Our spine physicians at Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center are true experts in the field who offer operative care for any spine issue. Our five fellowship-trained spine surgeons have a total of more than 50 years of serving the Midlands. The surgical team is able to provide a full spectrum of operative interventions including outpatient and minimally invasive surgeries, fusion procedures, motion preserving spine surgery, and complex revision procedures, depending upon the needs of the patient.

Each of our patients undergo a thorough evaluation and work with our specialists to develop a unique, patient-centered and comprehensive treatment plan. We collaborate with each patient to determine whether a surgical or nonsurgical approach is the most appropriate treatment option. If surgery is necessary, we will discuss the procedure and answer any questions.
