Health emergencies occur without warning and without prior planning. Often, these crises require the intervention of a surgeon. While the surgeons in the Division of General Surgery are often thought of as “MUSC’s trauma surgeons”, our role is also to provide care for the entire spectrum of surgical emergencies as well as providing surgical therapy for routine elective general surgery problems.

Our surgeons provide unmatched expertise and extensive experience in dealing with emergent surgical problems of all types ranging from simple cases of appendicitis to evaluation, management, and surgical care for the most severely injured patients in this part of the state. Because of the severity of their illnesses or the critical nature of their injuries, our patients often require the excellent care provided in MUSC’s Surgical/Trauma Intensive Care Unit.  In addition to certification in General Surgery by the American Board of Surgery, all of our surgeons have a Certificate of Special Competency in Surgical Critical Care.  As such, we are able to provide care not just in the Emergency Department and the Operating Room, but also throughout the patient’s stay including any time spent in the Intensive Care Unit.  To be sure we are always available when you or a family member needs us, one of our attending surgeons is in the hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  No other hospital in the region has board certified surgeons immediately available regardless of the time or day of the week.  With our combined experience and expertise along with the resources available at MUSC, we can assure our patients the best possible care, no matter how seriously ill or injured they may be, no matter when we are needed.

On this site we have included information about us as well as information for the residents, fellows, and medical students who work with us as part of our outstanding team. We have also included links to some other websites you may find interesting and helpful.

No one wants to be seriously injured nor does anyone want to have to deal with a serious surgical emergency.  We sincerely hope that you will never require our services. But, should you find yourself in need of the services we provide, we will be here ready to bring our dedication, our experience, and our expertise to your care.
