Lowcountry Ortho:  The Team to Treat the Pain!

Lowcountry Ortho: The Team to Treat the Pain!Tired of living in pain? Lowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine has the team to help you treat the pain. If you are one of the millions suffering from neck or back pain, it is critically important that you receive a thorough assessment from a specialist. Pain Specialists at Lowcountry Orthopaedics (LCO) includes board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians that offer comprehensive neurological evaluations and whole body treatment plans.

One of the physicians on our Pain Management Team is Dr. Christopher Merrell. Dr. Merrell states, “My job is to evaluate why my patients are in pain and formulate a plan to help the patient function and feel better.” Dr. Merrell’s fields of expertise include: electrodiagnostic testing (EMG), comprehensive physical rehabilitation, diagnostic and therapeutic injections, spinal cord stimulation for chronic pain, nonsurgical orthopedic care, and treatment of recreational athletes. One patient states, “Dr. Merrell is one of the best doctors anyone could ever ask for.” www.lowcountryortho.com/staff/spine/christopher-a-merrell-md/#1535405419852-1af7484a-df2f

Dr. Shailesh Patel is also part of the Pain Management Team at Lowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. Dr. Patel is a fellowship-trained pain management specialist who focuses on conservative treatment options such as spinal injections, physical therapy, and medications to diagnose and treat spinal pain. Dr. Patel states, “As a Pain Management specialist, I aim to use a multi-disciplined, holistic approach to treating pain. My ultimate goal is to effectively manage my patient’s pain symptoms so as to give them some semblance of normalcy, answers, and most importantly, hope.” www.lowcountryortho.com/staff/spine/shailesh-m-patel-md/

To pursue a specialty in spinal pain syndromes, Dr. Patel completed UCLA’s prestigious Pain Management Fellowship Program for further training, where he became proficient in fluoroscopically guided spinal interventions. Growing rapidly to meet patient needs, the new Clements Ferry office is now equipped with fluoroscopy to provide full service pain management. Fluoroscopy is an imaging tool that assists in pain procedures. By using fluoroscopic guided procedures, our physicians can identify specific areas of pain and isolate that area for treatment and precision.

The Pain Management Team also includes Nurse Practitioner Kelly Merrell and Physician’s Assistant Kathleen Bukowsky. Says a recent patient, “Life is easier when you have confidence in your doctors.” By adopting new technologies and developing new techniques, Lowcountry Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine’s team provides patients innovative surgical and nonsurgical techniques. Please call 843-797-5050 to schedule an appointment. To learn more, www.lowcountryortho.com/services-and-specialties/pain-management .
