Palmetto Bone & Joint’s surgeons perform thousands of total joint replacements of the hip and knee annually using the latest surgical techniques including minimally invasive robotic guided surgery. Minimally invasive surgery results in less pain, faster recovery, less scar tissue and less postoperative stiffness.

Our Chapin Surgery Center was among the first in South Carolina to provide total joint replacement in an outpatient setting. Not only does this provide a convenient, comfortable setting for the procedure, it enables patients to be back home hours after surgery. And, as a physician-owned surgery center, surgery here is much less expensive.

We have a history of innovation. Dr. James Loging performed South Carolina’s first anterior hip replacement in 2006. This leading-edge surgery has fewer complications, and speeds recovery since it avoids cutting the muscle.

Our physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists also provide non-surgical treatments including physical therapy, precision injections, regenerative medicine including platelet enrichment therapy and stem cell therapy, and nerve conduction studies.
