Meet Dr. Kirtley

Dr. Kirtley introduces new procedure

Dr. Kirtley has been practicing medicine in Valdosta since 2019. He received his medical degree from the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. He completed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and served ten years on active duty for the U.S. Army.

Dr. Kirtley is certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and specializes in diagnosing and performing nonsurgical or minimally invasive pain treatments.

Dr. Kirtley performs ultrasound and fluoroscopic guided pain procedures as well as some micro-invasive surgeries such as ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel release surgery that allows for a curative surgery without general anesthesia, immediate return to hand use, and an incision so small it does not require any stitches.

Dr. Kirtley is one of two physicians in the state of Georgia recommended by Sonex Health to perform US guided carpal tunnel release. Additionally, he offers guided specialty nerve blocks and ablations for chronic osteoarthritis, joint pain, post-traumatic/post-surgical chronic pain, mononeuropathies as well as regional neuropathic pain. He offers diagnostic and interventional procedures for spine, small and large joints, as well as treating traditional musculoskeletal injuries. Dr. Kirtley also has vast experience with regenerative medicine and alternative pain treatments (Dextrose therapies, Gua Sha/Graston technique, PENS, BattleField Acupuncture etc.).


Dr. Kirtley has saved me. 7 months ago I could not walk. He gave me hope and he made me a promise to help me and get me out of the pain I was suffering. He has done exactly what he promised. I can walk and he has given me my life back. The office staff and the whole crew are absolutely the very best. I love them all. They are all so loving and caring. It’s not like going to see the doctor It’s like going to visit family. Dr. Kirtley is very knowledgeable. He’s told me things that I never knew existed! He explains everything and he’s approachable more so than any doctor I’ve ever gone to. I can’t say enough good about him or his staff! I recommend him to anyone having problems! He has been the answer to my prayers!
