Get to know Physiatrist Dr. R. Jamie Spicer, who serves patients in Cedar Hill, Texas.

Dr. Spicer is an established physiatrist working at Cedar Hill Pain and Rehab in Cedar Hill, Texas. Highly regarded for his extensive knowledge and extraordinary set of skills in pain management and rehabilitation medicine, he enhances and restores the functional ability and quality of life for patients suffering from physical impairments or disabilities.

Attributing his success to his ability to provide quality patient care, Dr. Spicer is also affiliated with Methodist Charlton Medical Center and Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. 

Among his professional affiliations, he is a member of the International Spine Intervention Society, the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and the National Medical Association.

After graduating in 1994, Dr. Spicer traveled to Europe, where he played football for the Nurnberg Rams for one season in Nurnberg, Germany. However, while a student at APSU, he built the foundations of his future career as a physician, majoring in biology with a minor in chemistry. Upon his return to the United States, he resumed those studies by earning a Master of Science degree in Biology from Tennessee State University.

He then combined his two interests and took a job as a science teacher and assistant football coach at Joe Shafer Middle School in Sumner County. The following year, he again found himself as a student at Meharry Medical College, where he graduated with his medical degree and a 3.4 GPA in May of 2005.

Upon graduation, Dr. Spicer went on to serve his internship in internal medicine at East Tennessee State University – Quillen College of Medicine. Wanting to further his training, he completed his residency in physical medicine & rehabilitation within the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at the UT Southwestern Medical Center. 

During his residency, he focused on the inpatient care direction of the rehabilitation team, comprehensive outpatient clinic coverage including electrodiagnostics, inpatient consult services, as well as numerous academic responsibilities, including journal clubs and teaching. He completed this training in June of 2009, after which he was accepted into a fellowship training program in interventional spine, musculoskeletal, and sports medicine at the University of Florida Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute.

Following his education, the doctor became board-certified in physical medicine & rehabilitation by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR). The mission of the ABPMR is to serve the public by improving the quality of patient care in physical medicine and rehabilitation. This is accomplished through a process of certification and maintenance of certification that fosters excellence and encourages continuous learning.

Physical medicine and rehabilitation, also known as physiatry and physiatrics, is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. Physiatrists treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. 

Outside of practicing medicine, Dr. Spicer enjoys weightlifting, exercising, playing golf, doing athletics, studying historical biographies, and listening to music.
