When I made the decision to specialize in Pain Management, I understood the life-long commitment to staying informed of the latest developments in medicine, learning new procedures that would help patients like you live a full and productive life. My commitment to you has led me to explore, embrace and invest in new technology that may offer you a new level of relief and healing.

In my 20 years of practice, I have helped thousands of patients get pain relief with epidural steroid and joint injections. While these are still an integral part of the treatments offered at InterveneMD, I also relentlessly challenge the status quo and pursue new evidence-based treatments and technology to help my patients reach their functional goals.

Outside of work, my spare time is spent with my family, taking ski trips to Colorado, serving area Boy Scouts and helping my wife launch CanCare Charleston – a local nonprofit that offers one-on-one support for cancer patients by matching them with a cancer survivor to guide them through their journey.

I grew up in Hobcaw, here in Mt Pleasant I met my wife, Lynn, on a blind date during my Anesthesiology residency, and we have three wonderful children.

I have over 20 years of experience treating chronic pain and am a native of Charleston. I completed medical school, an anesthesiology residency, and pain fellowship all at the Medical University of South Carolina.

After completing my pain fellowship in 1999, I became the first fellowship trained pain physician in the Charleston area serving the private practice community. For 4 years, I served patients at Bon-Secours St. Francis Hospital, where I was the Medical Director of Pain Management. I then moved his practice into an office setting where patients could get the same nerve blocks without the need for expensive hospitalization.

I am a founding member of the South Carolina Society of Interventional Pain Physicians and an active member of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians. In the early 2000’s, I was very active in lobbying Congress to pass NASPER, a bill sponsored by doctors to provide and improve patient access to quality care, and protect patients and physicians from the deleterious effects of controlled substances misuse, abuse and trafficking. I’m also active in the Boy Scouts of America.
