Throughout his career Dr. Michael Skaliy aka “Dr. Mike”, has felt that medicine is a rapidly changing field and he’s continued to stay up to date to bring the latest cutting edge therapies into his practice. Most recently, he introduced stem cell therapy and minimally invasive same day spine surgery, which is done through a small device the size of a pencil.
For many years pain has been treated with the same procedures and surgeries that were performed on our parents. With the advent of minimally invasive therapy and stem cell therapy, Dr. Mike has moved into regenerative medicine to try to give long term pain relief by reversing the problem that is causing the pain, thereby providing long term pain relief; rather than the shorter-term treatments that are commonly available.
Dr. Mike was born in Savannah, Georgia and grew up in the Atlanta area. He is a devoted husband and father of two sons. He attended the pre-medical program at Tulane University. He graduated from the Medical College of Georgia. He attended the University of Tennessee for his four-year residency in Anesthesiology and Pain Management.
After graduating he became Board Certified in Anesthesiology. He became board certified in Pain Management in 1997. He is a member of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians and the International Society of Spinal Injectionists.
Dr. Mike was chairman of Anesthesiology and Pain Management for Georgia Baptist Medical Center for ten years. He served on the Board of Trustees of the hospital for eight years and was Chief of Staff of the hospital prior to going into private practice and opening Atlanta Spine Specialists.
