“Nobody likes to wait when you’re in pain, and you shouldn’t have to – not when there is so much we can do to help improve the quality of life.”
Derrick Randall, MD
Why does certification matter?
Dr. Derrick Randall is a board certified anesthesiologist and pain management specialist. Working in conjunction with OrthoPooler and Pooler Orthopedic Associates, Dr. Randall offers relief of acute and general pain as well as treatment for chronic conditions.
Board-Certified Pain Management Physician
Dr. Derrick Randall grew up in St. Louis, Missouri where he earned his degree from Washington University. He received his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1996 and also completed his anesthesiology residency there in 2000.
Following residency, Dr. Randall accepted a fellowship in pain management from Wake Forest School of Medicine. At Wake Forest he worked in their pain management rotations at The Carolinas Pain Institute and Wake Forest Baptist Health.
Upon completion of his fellowship, a love of the Low Country brought Dr. Randall back down south. He has worked at Memorial University Medical Center as an anesthesiologist and pain specialist for the past 16 years.
A father of four, Dr Derrick Randall spends much time these days shuttling between basketball and baseball practices, so he understands well the importance of being able to get out and be active with family and friends – pain free!
Relief from Chronic Pain
Pain lasting for more than three months is considered chronic. While Dr. Randall can offer treatment for the more short-term acute pain, it is relief from the chronic, unrelenting long-term symptoms that patients desire most.
