Travel Surgery USA

Lowcountry Orthopaedics surgeon, Dr. James D. Spearman, founded TravelSurgeryUSA in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. TravelSurgeryUSA is committed to transparent pricing with quotes that include the facility fee, surgeons fee, and anesthesia.

Last year over one million people traveled outside the United States and overseas for medical procedures. But patients traveling abroad for surgery risk the loss of their legal rights, language barriers, and the inability to verify the credentials of the surgeons and facilities to which they may be entrusting their life. Dr. Spearman founded TravelSurgeryUSA in response to the growing industry of medical tourism, and to provide a safe alternative at home to traveling abroad for surgery located in the U.S.

TravelSurgeryUSA surgeries are performed in either an outpatient facility or in a suburban hospital located in the Charleston, South Carolina area. After surgery, patients may recuperate in their choice of Charleston area accommodations that range from historic B&Bs to quiet houses at the beach.
