I was transferred from Coastal Carolina hospital in Hardeeville on Thursday Aug 28th with an infection on my spine. Upon arrival to MUSC I was treated as if I was the only patient in the hospital. I was greeted with a team of doctors, residents and nurses with the ut most professionalism. I was diagnosed with Osteomyelitis. I didn't even know how to pronounce it much less know what it was. The team of Doctors and Nurses went straight to work and figure out how to make me as comfortable as possible. Im currently still in the Hospital here at MUSC and just wanted to share how I have been treated with the best care ever. I have been to dozens of facilitates with my mother during her years with an incurable illness and MUSC has topped them all. To all the staff of 10 East y'all are the best.

I would like to give honor Dr. Robert Warren pediatric rheumatology, he diagnosed me with lupus aprox. 35 years ago. Fantastic physician you have there, I have the greatest respect for him. Love him.

Thank You Dr. Warren for your steadfastness, kindness and amazing insight into your medical knowledge.

Love ,
Kelly Siner, Princeton, W.Va.

MUSC getting ready for the Lowcountry Heart Walk

The Lowcountry Heart Walk will take place on Saturday, September 27 and we at MUSC couldn’t be more excited. We will be joining with more than a million people in over 300 cities as we take a stand (or a walk!) against heart disease and help save lives.

The funds the walk raises will support putting the most recent, valuable research into the hands of doctors – maybe even your doctor. These funds will also support groundbreaking pediatric and stroke research. Each year almost 36,000 babies are born with heart defects – this research can be key to saving babies lives.

We will be raising money, building awareness and having fun at this event in Liberty Square in downtown Charleston. The activities will begin at 8 am and the walk will begin at 9 am. Do stop by our tent for information, fun for the kids and a free pair of MUSC Health sunglasses (for the first 2,000 people.)

If you are ready to walk, join one of the many teams participating in this event, including one of ours. Find more information here. Or simply come out for the fun and cheer on the walkers. We'll even give you a pair of sunglasses just for being there.

On September 5, 2014, Charleston celebrated the career of soccer defender John Wilson. Prior to the match midfielder Zach Prince presented Wilson with a Battery jersey with the number 269 on the back, representing the number of matches Wilson has played for the Battery. In his time with Charleston, Wilson wore the number 25. In the 25th minute of the game, he was treated to a standing ovation from the home crowd. This game was Wilson’s last regular season game.

The Sports Medicine Team at MUSC Health is proud to have been a part of John Wilson’s soccer career. Our athletic trainers worked with John in his rehabilitation before he joined the Charleston Battery and continued the relationship with the team. Mike Barr, MUSC Sports Medicine Program Manager, spoke of his work with John Wilson. “John’s dedication to his sport and profession is second to none; I have never worked with an athlete as dedicated to his body and his recovery as John. His hard work and dedication is what made him a true professional and allowed him to continue to play and have such a long and successful career.”

We join with the rest of Charleston in wishing John all the best in his retirement from the Battery and know that he will continue to spread the message of soccer joy to kids around the country.
