Charles J. Nivens, MD
Dr. Nivens, a fellowship-trained spine specialist, completed medical school at the Medical College of Georgia. He then began residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Medical University of South Carolina. During this time, he was appointed Chief Resident of the department. After residency, he began a six-month fellowship in Conservative Spine Medicine at Carolina Spine Institute. Dr. Nivens opened his private practice here in Bluffton, SC in 2000.
Dr. Nivens’ philosophy throughout his career in treating pain patients has always focused on a holistic approach. He incorporates fitness, healthy nutrition as well as other natural remedies such as CBD oils in his practice. As Dr. Nivens has experienced the aging process with his patients, his interest in other modalities has increased. Many of his patients are seeking ways to look and feel younger. In 2017, Dr. Nivens and his wife, Ingrid Nivens chose to open Bluffton Aesthetics where Dr. Nivens is the medical director. In both practices, the focus is always the individual.

What our clients are saying
This is an amazing office I had gotten the runaround from my primary for weeks about the pain. I was in the office which was extremely busy but they somehow slipped me in and taken care of my problem. I highly recommend him.
Charles J Nivens, M.D. has helped me get my life back. I've suffered from debilitating back pain for years and thought the only solution was pain medication or surgery. I tried injections in the past with little success, but I'm so thankful I came to Dr. Nivens, I finally feel like myself again!
