Optim Orthopedics is proud to announce that renowned orthopedic surgeon Kent Woo, MD, has expanded his practice in the South Carolina Lowcountry and will see patients at the Optim office in Hilton Head. He will begin seeing patients Sept. 18.
Dr. Woo is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in total joint replacement of the hip and knee. He joined Optim Orthopedics in 2000 and has been practicing at the Bluffton office since then.
With more than 25 years of experience, Dr. Woo has long been considered one of the most skilled and well-respected orthopedic surgeons and total joint experts in the region. He uses the latest innovations, including robotic technology, and the most minimally invasive surgical and non-surgical approaches.
In addition to total joint replacement, his practice focuses on primary and revision joint replacement of the hip and knee, partial knee replacement, knee arthroscopy and hip fractures.
Dr. Woo graduated from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta and went on to complete his internship and residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Miss. He completed his fellowship at the Institute for Bone and Joint Disorders in Phoenix, Ariz.
“I’m very excited to join the talented orthopedics team at our Hilton Head location,” said Dr. Woo.
“There’s nothing more rewarding than helping patients reclaim their quality of life and get back to doing what they love.”
Optim’s Hilton Head office opened in fall of last year to meet the growing need for orthopedic care in the area.
Dr. Woo will see patients in Hilton Head on Wednesdays. The Optim Orthopedics office is located in The Medical Pavilion, 25 Hospital Center Blvd., Suite 100. To contact the office or make an appointment, call (843)705-9401.
