Ioannis Karampelas, MD, FAANS

Dr. Ioannis Karampelas immigrated to the U.S. from Europe years ago and is certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery.

He is thankful for his mentors, who have profoundly shaped his professional and human nature. Dr. Karampelas is excited to give back to the people and to the community. In addition to general neurosurgery, he has a particular interest in brain and spinal cord tumors.

Dr. Karampelas' approach is straightforward, saying, "I know how complex and frightening any neurological disease can be. I am here to help you understand what is going on in your body. Together, we can reach the best decision for you. I will share my professional opinion and what I believe is the best course of action after getting to know you as a person. My main focus is you, and I am proud to take full responsibility for you and your medical treatment."

Dr. Karampelas promises to take care of you with compassion and scrupulous attention to detail, using MUSC's most technologically and scientifically advanced hospital system.

"As a physician at MUSC Health Florence Medical Center, I can only be satisfied if I know we did the absolute best for you. Nothing is more important to us than what you feel and that we listened and cared for you."
