About Our Practice
We are a group of board certified pain specialists with offices in greater Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties.
Our practice is primarily outpatient based with staff privileges maintained at several medical centers near our satellite offices. Patients are referred from a variety of specialists, including chiropractic, primary care, orthopedic and neurological services.
Our expertise includes treatment of patients with a wide range of acute and chronic pain conditions. We have extensive experience in the appropriate utilization of a vast array of advanced interventional therapies. Our treatment plan may incorporate additional modalities, including physiotherapy, acupuncture, or psychiatric support.
Specific conditions we treat include: lumbar radiculopathy (sciatica), cervical (neck) radiculopathy, post laminectomy syndrome (back and leg pain persisting after surgery), post herpetic neuralgia (shingles), complex regional pain syndrome (reflex sympathetic dystrophy), lumbar compression fractures, and many other chronic pain conditions
At Advanced Pain Specialists of Southern California we are devoted to providing only the safest and most appropriate care for our patients. We utilize nationally recognized scientific guidelines such as Official Disability Guidelines (ODG), and American Society of Interventional Pain Physician Guidelines (ASIPP) in our treatment plans. We have capability for in-office (non-facility) procedures that require fluoroscopically guided treatments.
