LCO: The Team to Treat All AgesFrom a 101 year old patient Genetha Sampson to ten year old golfer Marley Duarte, Lowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine treats patients of all ages. They choose Lowcountry Ortho because of their award winning care, fast access and five convenient locations that includes a surgery center. By adopting new technologies and developing new techniques, orthopedic surgeons at Lowcountry Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine provide patients innovative surgical and nonsurgical techniques.
When choosing a physician trust is important, especially when caring for a child. Often there is a concerned parent with a curious child. This was the case with Marlie Duarte, a Junior PGA golfer, especially after breaking her arm for the second time. She states, “They did a great job of explaining what was going to happen. I am a child. I wanted to know what was going on. It made me less worried overall because I knew exactly what was going to happen.”
Marlie’s injury required surgery with two metal rods. States her mom Renee, “I was trying not to panic. It is very scary as a mom.” She says the team at Lowcountry Ortho helped calm her nerves, as well as her daughters, “For a child, they explain everything. They showed her the x rays and pointed out details. They included her in conversations, it calmed her down. They are wonderful with kids. They all know how to talk to kids.”
Lowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine physicians care for patients of all ages, and often times, they keep it in the family. Says a patient on Facebook, “I have been at Lowcountry Ortho, my son has been a patient and so has my mother. That should tell anyone something about the trust we have.”
Among Charleston’s leading and longest standing orthopaedic groups, founded by Dr. Joel R.
