About Dr. Wallace

Philip Wallace, MD, is a renowned physician and interventional spine and sports medicine expert at Central Oregon Spine & Sport in Bend, Oregon. Dr. Wallace is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and specializes in the nonsurgical management of acute and subacute musculoskeletal injuries and remote intraoperative monitoring.

After earning his medical degree from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, Dr. Wallace completed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He followed that with fellowship training in interventional spine and sports medicine at Southwest Spine & Sports in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Dr. Wallace opened Central Oregon Spine & Sports in February 2017. He takes a natural and conservative approach to treatment and tries to help his patients get off of pain medications and find relief by alternative means. He’s on the forefront of a burgeoning medical field that integrates platelet-rich plasma (PRP), stem cells, and prolotherapy to help patients alleviate musculoskeletal pain by rehabilitating and regenerating healthy tissue.

Before finding his passion in medicine, Dr. Wallace was a professional musician based in Nashville. He spent over a decade playing guitar as a major label touring and recording artist, and even played on the Conan O’Brien Show and at the Grand Ole Opry. He was ultimately inspired to pursue medicine after reflecting on the legacy of his father, a revered orthopedic surgeon in Beaumont, Texas, who was paralyzed from the waist down from a rare autoimmune malfunction and worked out of a wheelchair.

When he’s not working with patients, Dr. Wallace leads an active lifestyle with his wife, Carrie, and their two children, Scott and Audrey. He’s a passionate fly fisherman, bird hunter, and photographer. He also has successfully climbed Mt. Hood, and has completed the MS 150 three times with his son. When he’s taking it easy, he enjoys playing one of the guitars from his 19-piece collection, particularly his Fender Telecaster, which wails blues like nobody’s business.
