Dr. Edward Mikol has been providing orthopedic care to the Grand Strand community since 2000. He earned his bachelor’s degree from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. There, he went on to complete his medical education at The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences, where he received his surgical internship and orthopedic surgery residency training. Dr. Mikol later underwent specialty training in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery through a fellowship at Southern Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center, P.C., in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dr. Mikol is a founding partner for one of the core orthopedic groups in OrthoSC and is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He was awarded a U.S. patent for a method to repair proximal humeral fractures, and a European version was awarded in 2007. This invention provides an option for the treatment of fractures of the shoulder and humerus, but it can be applied to other specific bones as well.

Raised on Long Island, New York, Dr. Mikol and his wife, Jane, currently reside in Myrtle Beach and attend Pawleys Island Presbyterian Church. He is an avid outdoor sports enthusiast and enjoys scuba diving and underwater photography, and he has traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad to photograph the indigenous wildlife and natural scenery. Dr. Mikol also restores vintage automobiles and collects antique medical and surgical instruments and equipment.

“I have been getting shots in both my shoulders for a few years now. I was told from the beginning that there was a good chance that at least one shoulder would eventually require surgery. My left shoulder has been deteriorating to the point that this last time the shot has not been as effective as it has been. The next step is an MRI to see what exactly is going on at this point. Once Dr. Mikol has the results, we will discuss what steps can/should be taken. I like the fact that the decision will be based on the most up to date facts available.”
