Biography

Dr. M. Gabe Hillegass is a board certified interventional pain management physician who values individualized treatment plans with the goal of optimizing patient function and quality of life. He is experienced in working within interdisciplinary teams that include your primary care physician and any referring specialty physician as well as providers from co-treating specialties such as physical therapy, psychiatry, and behavioral medicine. Dr. Hillegass believes that chronic pain can be successfully managed similarly to most other chronic medical conditions. He feels that patient education and self-empowerment are the keys to this success.

Dr. Hillegass completed his anesthesiology residency at MUSC, where he was a chief resident, before moving on to Harvard Medical School's Brigham & Women's Hospital for his fellowship training. He subsequently served four years on active duty with the navy as a staff anesthesiologist and pain medicine physician at the Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, Virginia. There he was the division officer for the pain medicine service and assistant program director for the pain medicine fellowship. He has won research and teaching awards and has published research articles in peer-reviewed medical journals as well as numerous chapters in pain medicine textbooks.
