Meet Our Team

Our dedicated team of nationally and internationally recognized pain management specialists has the expertise required to help patients who have both common and rare pain issues and disorders and have not responded to conventional therapies. Our multidisciplinary physicians are board certified and faculty of Harvard Medical School. We are published in professional medical journals and lead the way to new scientific discoveries in pain management. Collaborating with primary care physicians, orthopaedic spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, and physical therapists, we diagnose, treat and manage pain with the very latest treatments.
