Self Regional Healthcare

Self Regional Healthcare (, a 414-bed regional referral center in Greenwood, began as Self Memorial Hospital in 1951 and was built to be one of the most advanced hospitals in the country. Local business leader and philanthropist James C. Self oversaw the construction and recruited top physicians nationwide. Mr. Self’s commitment to advanced care with leading-edge technology continues today. Self Regional has grown into a major referral and medical center that provides advanced healthcare services to more than a quarter of a million people. To separate the region from the community would be impossible.

Among the advanced care services offered by Self Regional are:

Spine Surgery Center

Self Regional Healthcare’s top-ranked spine surgery program has become the first in the Southeast to utilize the most advanced surgical imaging technology available.  Surgeons at Self Regional now treat patients with various spinal problems in the medical center’s new advanced surgical operating room—BrainSUITE iCT.  Self Regional is the first in the Southeast and only the fourth facility in the nation to use this new space-age technology, which allows surgeons to view images during surgery, not only of the brain but also of the neck and back, where surgical precision is critical.

“Having the ability to check one’s work during surgery is critical,” said Dr. Michael Kilburn, a neurosurgeon with Carolina Neurosurgery and Spine Center.  He, along with fellow neurosurgeons Dr. Sumeer Lal and Dr. Gregory McLoughlin, will be using the advanced technology in their practice, which has been ranked in the top five percent in the United States by HealthGrades, the leading independent healthcare ratings organization for the past two years.

BrainSUITE iCT is a digitally integrated operating room (OR) solution that combines VectorVision® sky surgical navigation with a multi-slice intra-operative computed tomography scanner (iCT) and comprehensive OR data management.  The CT travels on rails over the OR table, providing high-quality intra-operative scanning without waking the patient from anesthesia.  The introduction of the iCT BrainSUITE, along with the new South Carolina Spine Center and its comprehensive patient services, is expected to enhance and expand spine care at Self Regional Healthcare, which treats patients across the state and Southeast region.

Sophisticated technology and an experienced staff are the keys to fighting cancer.  Self pairs the most advanced equipment with professional, caring physicians to make the battle more accessible and less painful, to increase the chances for success.  It’s quality cancer care, leading-edge radiation equipment, PET-CT scanning for improved diagnosis, IMRT for pinpoint treatment, and clinical trials for the latest cancer drugs.
