Dr. Wildstein founded the Wildstein Spine Center in 2008 after completing his specialty fellowship training in spinal surgery at Stanford University in California.  Unlike other orthopedic and spine practices in the country, Dr. Wildstein does not use physician assistants (PA's) or nurse practitioners (NP's) to see his patients.  What this means for patients at Wildstein Spine Center is that they will always have a personalized exam performed by only the most qualified individual with the highest level of training in orthopedic and spinal pathology- ensuring the continuity of care that patients demand in today's competitive market. Dr. Wildstein's high patient ratings and satisfaction scores are a testament to his honest, personal and knowledgeable treatment of those in his care.

Dr. Wildstein takes pride in the fact that he is an independent physician practice, not owned by the hospital system, and so he can provide an in-depth, thoughtful and thorough examination of every patient who comes through his door.  In addition to giving lectures to and teaching other spinal surgeons across the country, Dr. Wildstein is the author of several textbook chapters on orthopedic and spinal surgery.  His expert medical opinions are sought by individuals across the Southeast region, and he was recently named Top 3 Orthopedist in Charleston area by ThreeBestRated after their extensive review and inspection.  

Dr. Wildstein currently serves as the Chairman of Orthopedic Surgery at St. Francis Hospital, Vice Chairman of Orthopedic Surgery at Roper Hospital, and serves in Orthopedic Spine Surgery at the VA Hospital in Charleston, SC.
