Orthopedic Surgery


P. Doug deHoll, MD, received his medical degree from the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia, and completed his internship and residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He then completed a combined neurosurgical and spinal surgery fellowship at the Leatherman Spinal Institute at the University of Louisville in Kentucky.

Dr. deHoll is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and is a member of the North American Spine Society, the American Medical Association, the South Carolina Orthopedic Society and the Sumter Clarendon Lee Medical Society. He also serves as president of the South Carolina Spine Society.

Dr. deHoll's specialties and clinical interests include minimally invasive spine surgery, cervical spine surgery, lumbar spine surgery, adult scoliosis surgery, revision cervical surgery, revision lumbar surgery and evaluation and treatment of sciatica. He also is involved in the development of new surgical implants.

“The majority of what I try to do is minimally invasive. I see my patient in the recovery room, 30 minutes later, and most of them say they’re sore from the surgery – but the pain they had is gone. To hear that, it actually gives me goosebumps to think about.”
