Our department has developed a unique relationship with the Biomedical Engineering Department at Clemson in order to provide an avenue for product designs and biomechanical research. We stress that great surgery should be complemented with great research.

We have the privilege to take care of the local professional baseball, hockey, and soccer teams, as well as the College of Charleston athletes. Lastly, Charleston is a wonderful place to live, work, and play as we have been named the #1 Top Small City in America for the last ten years by Conde Nast.
