Board-Certified Physiatrist Dr. Scott Otis Joins Charlotte Office
Physiatrist Scott Otis, MD, recently joined the Charlotte office of Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates on Baldwin Avenue. He is certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and is a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
Dr. Otis will help expand the range of nonsurgical treatment options offered by Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates. As a physiatrist, he offers nonsurgical care for acute and chronic disorders of the spine, from sprains and degenerative pain to arthritis and herniated discs. His conservative treatment approaches include physical therapy and medications. He also performs therapeutic spinal injections. For the past 15 years, Dr. Otis has been in private practice in Ohio.
"My primary focus is on improving quality of life for each patient," said Dr. Otis. "When a patient comes to me with excruciating pain, it's very satisfying when we are able to relieve the pain so he or she can return to a more active and happy lifestyle."
