A back injury his senior year of college led to a long, frustrating experience that lasted throughout medical school and shaped Dr. Wheeler’s interest in and commitment to study and treat pain, especially pain caused by spine problems.
Dr. Wheeler graduated from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill with a double major in Art History and Chemistry. He obtained his M.D. degree from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, and completed his neurology residency at Baylor College School of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
After serving as a neurologist in the U.S. Air Force, Dr. Wheeler moved to Charlotte in 1986 to specialize in general and spine-related pain disorders. He joined the Charlotte Spine Center in 1993. In 1996 he established his practice as PAIN AND ORTHOPEDIC NEUROLOGY, which included a research division that pioneered the use of botulinum toxin for headache and spinal pain. Dr. Wheeler has, without a doubt, the most experience in the region with the use of botulinum toxin for neuromuscular movement and pain disorders. He has always acted as a pioneer in forward thinking and offering new technology to reduce or eliminate pain. Pain and Orthopedic Neurology has also added a revolutionary technique to treat pain with spinal cord and peripheral nerve stimulation through Spinal Cord Stimulation. Dr. Wheeler is committed to treating his patients in pain with kindness and multidisciplinary care coupled with cutting edge, futuristic ideas and technology.
