Dr. Jeffrey Glaser is a double board-certified interventional pain management physician specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders which cause pain. A large focus of Dr. Glaser’s practice is on spine mediated pain (i.e. back pain and sciatica) due to conditions such as herniated discs, arthritis of the spine, spondylolisthesis and failed back surgery syndrome. Some other conditions he treats include, but are not limited to, migraines, peripheral neuropathy, and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Crucial to developing a comprehensive treatment plan is the initial diagnosis and work-up of the condition causing pain.
Treatment plans are usually multi-modal and may include minimally invasive procedures, medication management, PT and lifestyle modifications. Dr. Glaser may incorporate controlled substances such as Percocet and Norco into a treatment plan short term, but rarely encourages or prescribes long term around the clock opioids for non-cancer pain. Dr. Glaser has successfully diagnosed and treated thousands of patients. He says, “it is very rewarding to meet a person who is in pain and has limitations in lifestyle due to the issue and then be able to properly diagnose and treat them resulting in reduced pain and improved quality of life.”
