About Us

The Department of Surgery provides comprehensive surgical services specializing in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of health problems requiring operative intervention. Our surgical team also performs a wide-range of minimally invasive operations and vascular procedures. Faculty physicians provide in-patient/out-patient care with our partner hospitals, Palmetto Health Richland and the Dorn VA Medical Center.

Each surgeon is a member of the faculty of the University of South Carolina School of Medicine and is responsible for training future doctors. Our surgeons are trained in multiple surgical and therapeutic procedures. Many have been fellowship trained in specific surgical areas. For you, that means the best possible care in the hands of surgeons who are experts in the field. Our team performs thousands of operations each year at Palmetto Health Richland and the Dorn VA Medical Center. Whether you are in need of an acute or complex surgical procedure, our professional health care staff will take special care of you.
