Recently awarded Charleston’s Choice for the fourth year in a row, there are multiple reasons patients choose Lowcountry Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. It begins with a call into our office to schedule an appointment. Fielding over 10,000 calls per month, our scheduling team knows that finding fast relief for our patients is a priority. Service excellence continues from the minute patients walk in the door for scheduled appointments. Says one, “The staff is pleasant and always greets me with a smile!” Adds another, “Easy check in and out, minimal wait. Everyone very helpful!”

Broken bones? Lowcountry Orthopaedics (LCO) provides full-service treatment from evaluation and x-ray to casting and occupational therapy. “I was very concerned about my wrist. Everyone was nice and understanding,” explains a recent patient. “Everyone has been great since I broke my hand. I like that I could get everything done in one location, including x-rays and a cast.” LCO physicians are easily accessible as they maintain hospital privileges at Summerville Medical Center, East Cooper Medical Center, Trident Medical Center, Moncks Corner Medical Center and all Roper–St. Francis Hospitals.

Another acclaimed aspect of Lowcountry Orthopaedics is the Outpatient Surgery Center. The surgery center’s digital operating rooms, leading-edge technology, specialized orthopaedic clinical support team and highly skilled surgeons give patients access to the most current outpatient procedures in the region.  Outpatient total knee and hip replacement, partial knee replacement, hip resurfacing, and total shoulder replacement share excellent outcomes. “I have had many knee surgeries at Lowcountry Ortho’s outpatient center. They are phenomenal. Great staff, great center!!!” The freestanding ambulatory surgery center adjacent to the LCO office in Summerville provides an efficient, cost-effective, and safe alternative to the traditional hospital stay. Another patient explains, “The outpatient surgery center did right by me. I had both shoulders repaired and my left knee repaired.” Home care and durable medical equipment is arranged and provided to patients upon discharge from the outpatient surgery center.

New technologies and techniques continue to place Lowcountry Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine among the top providers of orthopaedic treatments in the region. Being a locally owned, independent practice sets the bar high for customer service among the LCO staff and physicians. “The doctors are so knowledgeable and treated me like family.” LCO offers five convenient locations as well as Friday and Saturday morning Black and Blue Clinics on Clements Ferry Road during football season. One patient puts it simply, “Lowcountry Orthopaedics is the best!” To learn more: https://www.lowcountryortho.com/ or call 843-797-5050 to schedule.
