Edward Douglas Norcross, MD

Dr. E. Douglas Norcross is a fellowship-trained trauma and critical care surgeon in Charleston, South Carolina. He and his colleagues take care of trauma patients and those in need of emergency general surgery for conditions like acute appendicitis. In addition, Dr. Norcross' practice includes the care of surgical patients in the Intensive Care Unit. His patient care philosophy is to involve his patients and their families in the decision making process, discuss treatment options, and offer the least intrusive care whenever possible.
Dr. Norcross joined MUSC as director of the Trauma Center in 1989. What continues to impress and inspire him is the collective efforts from all team members delivering compassionate care to his patients in the Intensive Care Unit.

He has been a part of the MUSC College of Medicine's Admissions Committee for the past 20 years. He currently serves the University as Associate Dean for Admissions and chair of the MUSC College of Medicine's Admissions Committee. In that role he oversees the admissions processes for the College of Medicine. Prior to assuming this role in 2018, Dr. Norcross was the vice chair of Education in the Department of Surgery.
