Dr. Gene Massey has been practicing orthopedic spine surgery in Myrtle Beach since 2012. He received his bachelor of science degree in biology from the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky, where he went on to earn his medical degree from the University of Louisville School of Medicine. He followed medical school with an orthopedic surgery residency at the University of South Carolina-Palmetto Health in Columbia, South Carolina, before completing fellowship training in spine surgery at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina.
In his practice, Dr. Massey begins with a careful diagnosis and starts treatment with the most conservative possible methods in order to provide relief. If surgery is required, he is dedicated to utilizing the least invasive options in order to treat the condition to help patients return to a pain-free lifestyle and get back to the activities they previously enjoyed.
Dr. Massey is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is the first surgeon in the region to perform robotic-assisted spine surgery, the first surgeon in the state of South Carolina to perform robotic-assisted spine surgery with the Mazor X™ robotic system, and he has successfully completed over 100 robotic spinal procedures.
In his spare time, Dr. Massey enjoys family time, coaching his sons' youth soccer teams, fishing, F3 workouts, and Spartan Racing.
