Dr. Mikol Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Mikol Jr "Dr. Edward J. Mikol is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and is a founding partner of Carolina Orthopaedic Specialists. Raised on Long Island, NY, Dr. Mikol is a graduate of The George Washington University in Washington DC with an undergraduate degree in Computer Science. He continued at GWU for medical school, surgical internship and Orthopaedic Surgery residency. Upon graduation, Dr. Mikol accepted an arthroscopic fellowship at Southern Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center, in Nashville, Tennessee, prior to moving to South Carolina in 2000. Dr. Mikol was awarded a coveted U.S. Patent for a method to repair Proximal Humeral Fractures. A European version was awarded in 2007. This invention provides an option for the treatment of fractures of the shoulder and humerus, but can be applied to certain other bones as well. Dr. Mikol specializes in the treatment of sports injuries and disorders of the shoulder, knee and hip including arthroscopic procedures, tendon repairs, joint replacements, as well as complex fractures and dislocations. Additionally, Dr. Mikol employs the newest non-surgical management techniques such as utilizing PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections to stimulate and optimize a patient's own ability to heal certain chronic conditions. Dr. Mikol and his wife Jane live on the Grand Strand and attend Pawleys Island Presbyterian Church. He is an avid outdoor sports enthusiast, enjoys restoring vintage automobiles and has traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad to photograph the indigenous wildlife and natural scenery."

Dr. Mikol is an exceptional orthopaedic surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Mikol!
in Myrtle Beach |
I will write another review even though the previous one was removed. Wait time and staff were friendly and helpful. Dr. Edward Mikol was the complete opposite. He was rude, arrogant and insulting, talking down to me as if I were a child instead of a 50 year old woman with a Masters Degree in Professional Counseling who is working on her PHD. His condescending, poor bedside manner made me to leave the office. Probably the worst experience I've ever had. I wouldn't recommend him to ANYONE.
Myrtle Beach, SC |
Dr. Mikol is the most unprofessional, arrogant doctor I have ever met. I actually walked out before my appointment was complete. His nasty attitude, and talking to me like I was five years old was extremely rude. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone. I will not soon forget my experience today.
Murrells Inlet, SC |
I had surgery to replace knee in 2013, It became infected. During surgery to remove replacement, Dr. Michol injured a nerve, causing a dropped foot. Care given during recovery before revision was not proper for situation and as a result the revision is less than expected and I am crippled. His attitude during all of this has been poor.
in Pawleys Island, SC |
I had pain in my thigh and he wanted to do a knee replacement.
