By adopting new technologies and developing new techniques, orthopaedic surgeons at Lowcountry Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine provide patients innovative surgical and nonsurgical techniques.
When choosing a physician to care for your child, trust is important. This was the case with Marlie Duarte, a Junior PGA golfer, 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, but 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 Orthopaedics helped calm her nerves, as well as her daughter, Marlie’s, “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.”
Lowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine physicians care for patients of all ages, often treating the whole family. Says a patient on Facebook, “I have been a Lowcountry Ortho patient, 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. Cox, Jr. in 1975, Lowcountry Orthopaedics offers the most advanced comprehensive orthopaedic care in the region. The Specialists bring a team of highly trained and experienced physicians to diagnose and treat all conditions related to sports injuries, the hip & knee, shoulder, spine, hand and foot, ankle and pain management.

I have had ten surgeries from 1982-2016, I am grateful to them.”
