Dr. Kline graduated with a medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2008. He completed a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York City. Dr. Kline’s interest in painful conditions of the spine led him to undertake an interventional spine care fellowship at Virginia iSpine Physicians in Richmond, Virginia. During his time there, Dr. Kline was involved in clinical trials investigating innovative treatments for spinal disorders. He also co-authored three book chapters with a focus on interventional spine care.

Dr. Kline has been in private practice for five years. Prior to this, he started and directed a hospital-based interventional spine program. His primary interest is the use of minimally invasive image-guided procedures to treat painful spine conditions. He aims to use his expertise to improve function and reduce pain for patients who have painful spine conditions and minimize the use of medications wherever possible.
