department of anesthesia and Perioperative medicine
The Orthopedic Anesthesia division at the Medical University of South Carolina performs over 3400 anesthetics a year for a variety of orthopedic surgeries. As a Level 1 trauma center and major orthopedic referral center for the state, our cases include a wide variety of emergency trauma, sports medicine, spine, total joint replacement, hand, and pediatric surgeries.
We provide anesthesia at both the main hospital and our Rutledge Tower ambulatory surgery center. The Orthopedic anesthesia section operates in concert with MUSC’s Regional Anesthesia Pain Service (RAPS) and Bone & Joint Center. This arrangement offers patients a team approach to anesthesia, surgery and postoperative pain management. Our group employs a variety of intraoperative anesthetic techniques including spinals, epidurals and peripheral nerve blocks.
