I had an opportunity to talk about chronic pain and the challenges of starting a new medical practice with Maria Saint of the Ventura County Star newspaper:

Who’s New in Business: Ventura Pain & Spine Physicians Inc.

I discuss some influences on my practice and how small medical practices are better equipped to provide personalized care for difficult medical conditions like chronic pain.  Unlike a doctor in a big corporate hospital environment, who has pressures from non-MD administrators to see X patients per hour, I am able to get to know my patients and come up with multifaceted long-term strategies to better get pain under control.

I have specialized training in chronic pain, particularly involving back and neck pain, that was not available to most pain doctors when they started their practices. As a result I can offer many new types of treatment that were not available in the past, like spinal cord stimulation, radio-frequency treatments, and ultrasound diagnostics and therapies. I have learned the nuances of this very complex area of medicine from some of the innovators who are developing these new therapies in the University of California hospital system.
