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.

Urologic Surgery

Surgeons at GHS Regional Urology utilize the da Vinci Robotic Surgical system to facilitate complex laparoscopic surgical procedures. By providing surgeons with superior visualization, enhanced dexterity, greater precision and ergonomic comfort relative to conventional laparoscopy, robotic surgery makes it possible to perform minimally invasive procedures involving complex dissection or reconstruction. For the patient, a robotic procedure can offer less pain, less blood loss, and less need for blood transfusions. These minimally invasive robotic procedures enable a shorter hospital stay, a quicker recovery and faster return to normal daily activities.

Our robotic surgeons perform many urologic surgeries such as:

  • Radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer
  • Radical/partial nephrectomy for kidney cancer
  • Radical cystectomy with urinary diversion for bladder cancer
  • Retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for testis cancer
  • Pyeloplasty for UPJ obstruction
  • Ureteral reimplantation for blockage of the ureter
  • Sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse
  • Vasectomy reversal

The following surgeons at UMG Regional Urology perform urologic robotic surgery:

  • Dr. Kim Burgess (Prolapse)
  • Dr. Erik Busby (Cancer, Reconstruction)
  • Dr. Charles Marguet (Cancer, Reconstruction)
  • Dr. Patrick Springhart (Cancer, Reconstruction)
  • Dr. Blake Wynia (Vasectomy reversal)
