About Rafael Santiago, MD, MBA

Rafael Santiago, MD, MBA, is an emergency medical specialist with more than 20 years of experience working with patients at the Regenerative Sport, Spine and Spa in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Santiago believes in treating the source of the pain rather than just the symptoms, providing more options than generic pharmaceuticals and corticosteroids.

Dr. Santiago attended the University of Rochester in New York, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in pre-medical studies. During his undergraduate work, Dr. Santiago was an active member of Tau Kappa Epsilon, greatly enhancing his education experience and offering valuable lessons not otherwise learned inside the classroom.

After earning his bachelor’s, Dr. Santiago obtained his doctorate from the San Juan Bautista School of Medicine in Caguas, Puerto Rico. He also completed an emergency medicine internship and residency while enrolled.

Since completing his doctorate, Dr. Santiago has worked for several hospital systems throughout the southern United States as an emergency physician. Some include the Callaway Community Hospital in Fulton, Missouri, the Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach, Missouri, and the Medical Center of Trinity in Trinity, Florida.

After gaining nearly a decade of hands-on experience, Dr. Santiago returned to higher education in 2014 and obtained a health care MBA from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Santiago believes in addressing concerns and promoting wellness with three key pillars: interventional pain management, bioidentical hormone therapy, and external aesthetics through the medspa. With this approach, Dr. Santiago is confident patients will significantly boost their quality of life. 

When not treating patients, Dr. Santiago enjoys spending time at rock concerts with his son and exploring the United States through various concert venues. His favorite bands include Pearl Jam, Kiss, and Van Halen.
