The division of Pediatric Surgery at MUSC was established more than 40 years ago under the leadership of Dr. H. Biemann Othersen. The division has been recognized for its innovative patient care initiatives and significant contributions to the field of children's surgery. Over the years, many new and advanced surgical techniques were developed by surgeons in our division and passed-on to residents and surgeons in-training. We have always been supportive of the educational mission of the Medical University of South Carolina and we are now able to offer our services via Virtual Consultation through the VTCC Program. We look forward to the opportunity of assisting you in the care of your patients and their families.
