Wellness and Nutrition

A new approach to your health care

At Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center, our comprehensive medical wellness program can empower you to lose weight, reduce risk factors such as high blood pressure (hypertension), improve chronic conditions such as diabetes and improve your overall fitness, health and well-being​.

Healthy lifestyle interventions

Many of our patients who need orthopedic procedures and surgeries can see additional benefits from healthy lifestyle interventions. Our programs include nutrition, personal training and more comprehensive options combining nutrition and exercise with behavior modification.

Serving Columbia, Lexington, and the greater Midlands of South Carolina, our programs represent a new age of health care, focusing on wellness, nutrition and whole body health. At Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center, we believe prevention is the best medicine.

Our affiliate system

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will be rebranded in late 2019 and will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.
