OUR TEAM

Spine and Pain Management Center

Spine injuries and chronic pain are leading causes of disability in America. Our team of experienced specialists in neurology, physical medicine and neurorehabilitation are experts in developing interdisciplinary service lines to create customized, patient centered treatment plans for patients with an emphasis on compassionate care and functional independence to improve quality of life. It is our goal to create the most comprehensive spine and pain center in Hawaii, where patients can receive all aspects of their care under one roof and from time of initial consultation to the resolution of symptoms. To be a leader in conservative pain management as well as interventional care. Where a multitude of specialists and staff can come to the patient and provide all aspects of care. We use a multimodal approach to pain management with expertise in: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, neuropsychology, vocational training, acupuncture, chiropractic care, behavioral modifications/wellness, oral/topical and injectable medications, botox, neuromodulation, and minimally invasive surgical techniques. Each patient will have a comprehensive physical and functional evaluation with access to ultrasound, xrays, CT scans, MRI’s, and electrodiagnostic testing.  Clinical Trials available at Spine & Pain Management Center Publications by our specialists and researchers at the Spine Center Our specialists and staff are passionate about making a difference not just for our patients but for their precious families and caregivers. We understand the challenges of facing these issues and want to be sure you do not feel alone in this journey and have local resources available to you. Therefore, we work closely with and support Hawaii’s local support group.
