Conditions

CHARLESTON, S.C., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) opens the doors of Ashley River Tower, its new state-of- the-art hospital designed to treat patients with cardiovascular and digestive disease problems.

Specially sized equipment, treatment space and ICU beds accommodate bariatric surgery patients. The facility also includes a division specializing in surgery for gastrointestinal cancers.
