Dr. Todd Koppel - Pain Management Specialist

Dr. Todd Koppel, Intervention Pain Management Specialist

Dr. Koppel is a board certified pain management specialist with fifteen years of experience in the management of various types of acute and chronic conditions.  Each patient receives a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan.  Most spinal conditions can be treated with these modern and state of the art techniques. 

"I have seen in my years of practice that most patients with neck or back pain do not receive the right treatment.  The longer a condition exists, the more difficult it is to treat.  If the condition does not respond to conservative treatment such as physical therapy within two to three months, then it is unlikely to result in a long term benefit.  However my treatments combined with a therapy program can result in a more permanent solution, and avoid the need for surgery.  My goal is to utilize minimally interventional techniques to diagnose the cause of the pain, and then treat it.  I have improved or cured the conditions of hundreds of patients who might have otherwise undergone surgery with its much greater risks and complications."
