Back, Neck, Spine


As a fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon, Dr. Zachary Bailey is dedicated to helping his patients overcome neck and back pain and their spine-related problems. Offering the highest level of specialized spinal care, he will work closely with you to develop a straightforward treatment plan that fits your goals and needs to get you back to a quality of life you enjoy.

Dr. Bailey graduated from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with a Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry before going on to complete his medical degree and orthopedic residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. He was then selected for a fellowship at the University of Washington/Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he completed an additional year of specialized training in orthopedic spine surgery.

In his practice, Dr. Bailey starts with nonsurgical treatment whenever possible. If surgery is needed, he uses the least invasive methods necessary to achieve the desired outcome. He enjoys getting to know his patients and working with them to develop a straightforward treatment plan to get them back to a pain-free, active lifestyle. 

Outside of his practice, Dr. Bailey enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, photography, hanging out at the beach, watching the Cincinnati Bengals, and being outdoors biking, running, hiking, skiing, and gardening.

Dr. Bailey is available to see patients with back, neck, and spine issues at our North Myrtle Beach office.
