David Wiles, MD, a board-certified neurosurgeon with Southeastern Spine and Neurosurgery, has joined the medical staff at Parkridge Medical Center. The level of neurosurgical expertise he brings to Parkridge Medical Center will allow the facility to offer an increasing number of surgical treatment options for people suffering from brain and spine disorders.
“Dr. Wiles will be a foundational part of the neurosurgery program at Parkridge Medical Center,” said Tom Ozburn, president and CEO of Parkridge Health. “We are fortunate to have a neurosurgeon of his caliber on our team to expand the surgical offerings we are able to provide to patients in the greater Chattanooga area.”
Dr. Wiles earned his medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine and completed a general surgery internship and neurosurgical residency at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center, in Memphis.
In nearly three decades of practice, Dr. Wiles has leveraged the skills he developed training under world-renowned spine surgeons to offer leading edge neurosurgical procedures, such as same-day surgeries for herniated discs, spinal stenosis and artificial discs. He also provides robot-assisted spinal surgery and minimal access surgery for brain tumors and bleeding in the brain. He has also had an active role in the development and implementation of many spine surgical techniques and devices. A member of numerous neurosurgical committees and medical organizations, Dr. Wiles’ work has been featured in academic journals and conference presentations.
Prior to joining Southeastern Spine and Neurosurgery, Dr. Wiles was president of East Tennessee Brain & Spine Center and director of the Neuroscience Department at Mountain States Health Alliance, both in Johnson City, where he had practiced since 2000. He previously practiced at Appalachian Neurosurgery Clinic, PC, in Johnson City.
