Dr. Marcel Wiley is a Board Eligible Orthopedic Surgeon with Fellowship training in Adult and Pediatric Spine Surgery. His clinical interests include degenerative conditions of the neck and back, spinal deformity surgery, minimally invasive and motion sparing procedures. He also has a special interest in robotic spinal surgery and navigated techniques.

Dr. Wiley grew up in the suburbs of Dallas in Allen, Texas. He is a third generation Longhorn, graduating from The University of Texas at Austin in 2009. After completing his undergraduate, he attended medical school at The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, graduating in 2013. He then completed a five-year residency in Orthopedic Surgery at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and a one-year fellowship at the world-renowned Norton Leatherman Spine Center in Louisville, Kentucky. “My goal is to provide each of my patients with the best plan to get them back to living their normal lives,” said Dr. Wiley. “Neck, back and nerve pain can be incredibly debilitating, but with the multidisciplinary approach that Azalea Orthopedics offers, my hope is that we can provide significant relief. Nonoperative management should be the mainstay of treatment for many spinal conditions; however, when this fails, it is my job to help patients’ sort through their surgical options.”

Dr. Wiley, his wife Heather and their children are excited to come to East Texas and make this wonderful community their home.
