ROSWELL, GA — Prospira PainCare today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to purchase The Spine Center of Southeast Georgia, a comprehensive neurosurgery and pain management practice located in coastal Georgia.

Dr. Barry Karlin, Chairman & CEO of Prospira PainCare said, “Prospira is honored to welcome Drs. Gary Kaufman and Mark Gold (principal physicians at The Spine Center of Southeast Georgia) to the growing and dedicated Prospira team. The acquisition of The Spine Center of Southeast Georgia, and our partnership with Drs. Kaufman & Gold is a vital step in our strategy of building a network of high-quality pain management physician practices.”

The Spine Center of Southeast Georgia is an outstanding pain practice and a clinical powerhouse in functional restoration (getting chronic pain patients back to work as quickly as possible) that has energized this industry. With a focus on managing the multi-disciplinary chronic pain model, SCSG endeavors to restore its patients to a more active lifestyle, with improved quality of life and functionality. The physicians are also double board certified in neurosurgery and pain.

Prospira PainCare states that the purchase of SCSG is a perfect fit for its growth model that seeks to acquire and partner with pain practices that are well established in their communities and have demonstrable records of clinical excellence. This acquisition not only demonstrates Prospira PainCare’s dedication to the advancement of pain management ideas but is also evidence of our commitment to building the premier pain management company in the USA.

Prospira PainCare was co-founded earlier this year by Barry Karlin (formerly Chairman & CEO of CRC Health Group, the nation’s largest behavioral healthcare company) and Pulse Equity Partners (a newly formed private equity firm specializing in health & wellness). The company is funded by a strong group of private equity investors including Enhanced Equity Funds as the lead investor, as well as Pulse Equity Partners, Webster Capital and Dr. Karlin personally.
