More about Dr. Stefan P Gilthorpe

Stefan Gilthorpe, MD was born in Slidell, Louisiana and raised in the Beaumont area. His small-town roots shape how he approaches patient care: he understands the importance of listening to each patient and communicating his treatment plan before stepping out of the exam room. 

Dr. Gilthorpe received his undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University and went on to earn a master’s degree at Lamar University. He attended the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas for medical school, anesthesiology residency, and pain-medicine fellowship. Dr. Gilthorpe's subspecialty training focused on interventional techniques for neck and back pain, peripheral joints, migraines, complex regional pain syndrome and other painful conditions.

Following his tenure at UTMB, Dr. Gilthorpe worked in Fort Walton Beach, Florida as an interventional pain specialist, where he gained invaluable experience by performing thousands of procedures.

In late 2020, Dr. Gilthorpe founded Better Life Spine & Pain Center. He brings a passion for interventional-pain medicine, devotion to his patients and curiosity for innovative, new and up-and-coming medical techniques.

In his free time, Dr. Gilthorpe enjoys spending time with his wife, Darla, and his puppy, Olive. On weekends, you may find him floating in an inner tube down the river or tending to a campfire at Magnolia Ridge.
