Everything Under One Roof : SEE VIDEO

Here at The Southeastern Spine Institute we have everything under one roof, although with our newly expanded campus in Mt Pleasant, SC, we can now say we have everything under two roofs to serve the entire Charleston, SC area. We proudly call ourselves an Institute because our extensive team of physicians truly offer a vast array of treatments for your specific back or neck problem.

When you come to us with your back or neck pain, you want to know what’s wrong – rest assured that we can find your exact problem.

As a focused, spine only practice, we are very efficient. Our spine physicians utilize 3 MRIs, digital X-rays, nerve conduction studies, CT scans and other diagnostic technologies, then couple them with our vast experience in many different areas of spine medicine to pin-point your specific issue. Once we know the problem, we can find the solution.
