Surgery Information

Perioperative Services at MUSC Health is a collaborative and visionary unit comprised of 41 operating rooms located on our campus in Charleston, South Carolina, where over 48,000 surgeries were performed last year. Within our department, we have over 500 staff members including nursing, anesthesia, technical, and administrative staff. Our highly skilled and renowned surgeon faculty represents 16 specialty groups ranging from general surgery to organ transplant. We offer both inpatient and outpatient services to children and adults within our three facilities on campus: MUSC Main Hospital, Ashley River Tower, and Rutledge Tower.

Perioperative is a term that refers to all three phases of surgical care:

  • Before surgery (preoperative)
  • During surgery
  • After surgery (postoperative)

Our goal is to provide our patients with excellent, high quality care in a pleasant environment at each step of their experience with us. Please refer to our resources below for more information as our patient or visitor.
