David Hogarty, DO.jpgDr. David Hogarty has been in practice in Wayne County since 2005.  He and his wife, Dr. Suneya Hogarty, moved to Goldsboro to be closer to family. 

His philosophy of medical care is focused on treating the whole person-body, mind and spirit-no matter what type of problem they may have.  His practice focuses on treatment of painful disorders of the spine and limbs.  Examples include low back and neck pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis affecting any joint but especially shoulders, knees, and hips.

Treatment options include anything from medications, to injections, and also in many cases treatment includes manipulative therapy (osteopathic manipulation) and also acupuncture.  More recently, Dr. Hogarty has started to offer a type of regenerative medicine called platelet rich plasma (PRP) to help heal degenerated joints, tendons and ligaments.  The ultimate goal of all treatments is to reduce pain, restore function and help patients get back into the stream of life.
