The general surgeons of Tidelands Surgical Specialists of Waccamaw bring skill and expertise to the comprehensive treatment of patients with injuries and illnesses involving a wide range of systems and anatomical regions.
And this surgical practice is the first in the area to use single incision laparoscopic surgical techniques for cholecystectomy, appendectomy and hernia repairs. The technique has tremendous patient benefits including minimized pain, rapid recovery and potential for minimal scarring since the procedure uses a very small, single incision through the belly button.
