“Dr. Brothers did an excellent job performing my knee replacement surgery. He was always kind, patient, and understanding with me and would consistently explain things in terms that I could easily understand. I sincerely appreciate his professionalism and skill and would highly recommend him to anyone else considering this procedure. Thanks for everything Justin, well done!”

“Last November, I had my right knee replaced.  During the entire process, Coastal Orthopedics treated me as a person, not a patient.  Everything went great.  So when it came time to do my left knee, it was a no brainer. Coastal Orthopedics will do my surgery again. -- Robert T.”

“After suffering for two years with left knee pain, trying everything to avoid surgery, I scheduled an appointment at Strand Orthopaedics. I met with Dr. Justin Brothers, x-rayed my knee and told me that to have long-term relief I would need to have a knee replacement. I agreed to the surgery but was a little apprehensive about the procedure. Dr. Brothers had a knee replacement seminar at HealthFinders at Coastal Grand Mall before my surgery, so I attended to learn more about the method and Dr. Brothers. I left there feeling very confident that I had the right surgeon and I was more knowledgeable about the procedure. Grand Strand Medical Center also had a 1-hour class that went over details for the system and how to prepare for it. It was also very informative and instructed those in the class on how to make for the surgery. The surgery went great. They had me standing up in the recovery room soon after the surgery! I was out of the hospital in a couple of days, went to rehab for six weeks, and was back at work the 7th week. I recommend this surgery to everyone with complaints of their knee and recommend Dr. Brothers as an excellent surgeon! The care I received at Grand Strand Medical Center was also excellent! I have had no issues with my knee since my surgery and am back enjoying life with my family, and especially my active grandchildren.”

“I first saw Dr. Ramsey shortly after his arrival in Coastal Orthopedics for hip pain. I had been having an increasingly difficult time walking, and doing daily activities. Dr. Ramsey found arthritis in my right hip and about 5 and a half years ago he performed a total hip replacement.  Two years ago my left knee starting giving me issues, and Dr. Ramsey ended up doing a total knee replacement. I returned to work and my daily activities with tremendous success. One year ago my right knee was replaced, and again I have returned to work, and all activities. I am playing golf again, able to mow the yard and am enjoying daily activity pain free.  I have worked in the medical field for 46 years and can say with certainty that Dr. Ramsey and all of the Coastal Orthopedics physicians are the best orthopedic physicians I have seen – as a patient and professionally.  I cannot thank Dr. Ramsey enough for how he has help me with my arthritic issues. I would not be able to function very well without his intervention. I also thank the staff at Coastal Orthopedics. They have always treated me with respect, and over the years friendships have been made. I would not trust my orthopedic issues with any other group of providers.  – John O.”

“I have had two knee replacements by Dr. Ramsey and I must admit it was a good experience. Before surgery I could hardly walk without pain. I could not play golf or dance which were my two favorite past times. In the hospital and at home I had minimal pain.  Nothing like the stories of many patients who had knee replacements. I was very impressed by Dr. Ramsey's credentials, especially his background in pain management. The hospital experience was exceptional as well. As a retired nurse and hospital administrator, I would highly recommend Dr. Ramsey and Conway Medical Center to anyone. Today I can walk, dance, and play golf without any discomfort at all. The only thing I regret is the many years of pain I had before I met Dr. Ramsey. He is compassionate and caring doctor as well as an excellent surgeon. -- Carol L.”

“I’ve never had any problems since my surgeries. I had one total hip replacement done in June and the other hip done in August of the same year. Everything has been fine! It’s been two years since my surgeries, and I’m doing everything that I want to do. My recovery wasn’t difficult . . . I just did the exercises that I had to do. Dr. Bohan is my favorite hip doctor!”

“Dr. Bohan and staff diagnosed my knee problems and administered the appropriate shots to resolve the issues. I continue to go to the local gym three days a week and remain comfortable, even though I'm eligible for more shots. This entire organization is very professional and accurate with their diagnosis.”
