About Michael Sein

My name is Michael Sein, MD, and I am a board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation physician. I also serve as a clinical assistant professor at the University of Florida Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

I earned my medical degree from the University of Maryland. Following medical school, I completed an internship in internal medicine at Georgetown University and a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School. I went on to complete a fellowship in minimally invasive spine interventions at the University of California San Diego.

My clinical interests include interventional spine procedures and performing arts medicine. As a physician, my goal is to help my patients add quality to their life.

During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family.
