Dr. Thomas Nguyen

Interventional Pain Management Specialist

As a fellowship trained pain specialist, Dr. Nguyen performs leading-edge procedures for pain relief and functional improvement in a state-of-the-art outpatient medical center. Named regionally as a 2018 Top Doctor, and recognized nationally in the 70 Pain Management Physicians to Know, Dr. Nguyen is on the forefront of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Dr. Nguyen complements our unique treatment model, working directly with the spinal surgeons to offer safe, effective non-operative procedures for patients looking to overcome their neck or back pain. Additionally, Dr. Nguyen works collaboratively with our physical therapists to identify active individuals with degenerative neck or back conditions that would benefit from regenerative therapy options including Stem Cell Therapy, Platelet-Rich-Plasma, and Prolotherapy. Regenerative therapy presents a natural option for individuals seeking alternatives to surgery.

Dr. Nguyen’s procedure-driven philosophy has afforded him an extensive history of consistent techniques to administer effective pain management procedures. Examples of the latest pain management innovation include Radiofrequency Ablation, Spinal Cord Stimulation, and spinal injections. During these procedures he utilizes fluroscopic (x-ray) guidance to increase precision and maximize effectiveness.
