About our team
Our joint replacement team at Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center includes four fellowship-trained surgeons with a combined total of nearly 100 years of experience in joint replacement surgery. We utilize multiple surgical approaches to perform unicompartmental, primary and revision knee replacement, primary and revision hip replacement and osteotomies.
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 the most appropriate treatment option, discuss the procedure and answer any questions.
Common joint replacement conditions and treatments include:
- Hip and knee replacement surgery
- Revision total hip surgery
- Revision total knee surgery
- Arthroscopic knee surgery
- Visco supplementation
- Total ankle replacement
Our physicians perform outpatient surgery at three locations in the Midlands, including Prisma Heath Baptist Hospital, Prisma Health Baptist Parkridge Hospital and Prisma Health Richland Hospital. Benefits of outpatient surgery include convenient scheduling, a shorter stay (most patients return home the same day) and lower cost.
We have leading-edge advanced technology, specialized clinical support teams and highly skilled surgeons who perform some of the most advanced outpatient procedures including:
- Total knee replacement
- Total shoulder replacement
- Total ankle replacement
- Knee arthroscopy
- Shoulder arthroscopy
- Hip arthroscopy
