At the Charleston Institute for Advanced Orthopedics (CIAO), our orthopedic surgeons care and work with you to engage physical activities that bring you joy.
Sometimes physical discomfort is due to an injury. Sometimes it is caused by ordinary wear and tear. It’s our job as orthopedic surgeons in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and educate you about the range of advanced treatment options available.
Musculoskeletal is a big word for a good reason. Simply put, it applies to the system of ligaments, nerves, tendons, muscle and cartilage that stabilize the 206 bones in the adult body.
Our job is to demystify the science for you and analyze the state of your musculoskeletal wellness. Once we have a clear understanding of your current issues and challenges, we can set goals and plan a course of action. This might range from physical therapy and other non-surgical recommendations or, when necessary, a discussion of various surgical solutions.
Ultimately, our goal as orthopedic surgeons is to return you to a full range of motion, so that you may continue to enjoy an active lifestyle.
