Migraine Relief Procedure

McLeod Regional Medical Center is one of only a few hospitals in the state offering a needleless, non-invasive sphenopalatine ganglion block treatment option for individuals diagnosed with chronic migraines and headache pain.

Using the SphenoCath® device, a Radiologist delivers an anesthetic directly onto the nerve bundles causing migraine and headache pain. Studies have shown that the average headache-free period following this procedure is 90 days.

Referrals are required. For more information, please call (843) 777-5919.

McLeod Earns ACR Lung Cancer Screening Center Designation

LCSClogoMcLeod Regional Medical Center has been designated a Lung Cancer Screening Center by the American College of Radiology (ACR). McLeod is the only hospital in this part of South Carolina to achieve this designation.

The ACR Lung Cancer Screening Center designation is a voluntary program that recognizes facilities that have committed to practice safe, effective diagnostic care for individuals at the highest risk for lung cancer.

In order to receive this elite distinction, facilities must be accredited by the ACR in computed tomography (CT) in the chest module, as well as undergo a rigorous assessment of its lung cancer screening protocol and infrastructure. Also required are procedures in place for follow-up patient care, such as counseling and smoking cessation programs.
