Our Affiliate System

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. The rebranded Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.

Primary Care Sports Medicine

Keeping You Active for Life

Sports medicine primary care physicians treat anyone who is physically active to help improve performance, enhance overall health, prevent injury and maintain their physical activity throughout their lives. Some work with professional and amateur sports teams.

While some sports medicine physicians are surgeons who repair damage to tendons, ligaments and joints, primary care sports medicine is non-surgical care. It involves:

  • Comprehensive health care for the active patient, including diagnosis and treatment of sports or activity related and unrelated injuries and illnesses
  • Use of manual techniques to prevent and treat muscular and skeletal conditions common in athletes
  • Special knowledge of the principles of athletic conditioning
  • Focus on injury prevention and rehabilitation, including injuries common to specific sports
  • Nutritional guidance to build strength and endurance in support of athletic performance
