DrCotter-Best of Bluffton2At Okatie Surgical Partners, we use advanced surgical techniques to treat a variety of health problems. We often are able to use minimally invasive techniques, including laparoscopic surgery. Unlike open surgery, which requires a long incision, minimally invasive procedures are performed through one or more short incisions. For most patients, this leads to significantly less post-operative pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and, in some cases, a better overall outcome. Many of these operations are done on an outpatient basis or require only an overnight hospital stay.

We provide inpatient and outpatient surgical care at Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hardeeville and Hilton Head Hospital on Hilton Head Island.
