  • In-house pharmacy
  • Physical therapy center for spine-related conditions

Our new facility also offers expanded parking and more convenient patient care for the growing Mt. Pleasant and greater Charleston-area populations.


Our new center achieves our doctor’s vision to offer patients the very best in spine health expertise, technology and procedures.

The Southeastern Spine Institute physician staff includes spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, sports medicine orthopedic specialists, non-surgical rehab doctors and pain management specialists.

The Southeastern Spine Institute’s back and neck spinal injection treatments are subject to rigorous safety standards set by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). For more information, visit DHEC’s website.

Held to a higher standard than the regulations set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), our medicines come directly from the manufacturers, not from less regulated independent pharmacies or other compounding centers. That makes the medicine we use safer and free from contamination.


You can rest assured that when you receive treatment for your back or neck problem, our doctors make sure you get the safest medical attention found anywhere in the country. Your safety is our most important concern. Protecting you is a vital part of what we do.
