Grigsby opened the Spine and Pain Center of Kaua‘i in 2014 to address the needs of chronic pain patients, their loved ones and families. He offers treatment and support for those suffering from chronic pain while working closely with Wilcox Memorial Hospital, where he performs outpatient surgical procedures.
