    For over ten years, Dr. Hey and his team of healthcare professionals have been serving children, adolescents and adults with scoliosis and other spinal deformities from across the Southeastern United States and beyond. Dr. Hey aspired to be a surgeon following his own experience as a trauma patient during his adolescent years. His residency and training includes MIT, Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital. In 2005, after serving on faculty for Duke University Medical Center for nearly ten years, Dr. Hey founded the Hey Clinic for scoliosis and spinal deformities.

    Dr. Hey has performed over 6,000 spine surgeries; thousands with spinal deformity. Under Dr. Hey’s guidance, experience and leadership, the Hey Clinic team strives to create authentic relationships through a strong focus on patient education, generous appointment times and an emphasis on non-surgical treatments when appropriate.  We have now added an Orthotist to our staff!  Bracing is a conservative way to treat early scoliosis and attempt to halt curve progression.    Check her out at: KC Wheeler

No matter your age, it is important to understand your deformity and the appropriate steps needed to achieve and maintain your best quality of life and posture.

    • “I appreciate all the time Dr. Hey spent with my husband and I explaining everything and answering all the questions I had.”
    • “I am so glad that I came and talked to Dr. Hey about surgery. He is my 2nd opinion. It was between night and day with the other surgeon. He hardly spent any time with me and did not explain things nearly as well and in detail as Dr. Hey did!”
    • “You guys are an awesome bunch of people! I just cannot believe the amount of attention and the level of care I received today.”
