Tidelands Health surgeon becomes 1st in area to perform posterior cervical fusion: 3 things to know


M. Daniel Eggart, MD, became the first surgeon in the Charleston, S.C., area to perform a minimally invasive posterior cervical fusion, according to the South Strand News.

Here are three things to know:

1. Dr. Eggart is part of Charleston-based Medical University of South Carolina's neurosciences team at Tidelands Health in Georgetown, S.C.

2. He performed the surgery at Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital in Murrells Inlet, S.C.

3. The 15-to 20-minute procedure requires a surgeon to fuse together vertebrae to stabilize the spine and relieve pain. A single screw is used to stabilize the spine instead of a rod and screw system.
