Dr. Compton's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Compton "Dr. Compton was born and raised in Somerset, Kentucky. He earned his undergraduate degree at Murray State University, and his M.D. from the University of Louisville School of Medicine. He then completed his residency in Anesthesiology at the University of Louisville, receiving honors as the outstanding resident in Pain Medicine. He then completed his fellowship in Pain Medicine at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, as Chief Fellow."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Compton "I've had an interest in the treatment of chronic pain since I was young, seeing the debilitating effects of chronic pain on close friends and family members. Before exploring the field of Pain Medicine, like others, I simply thought that once a patient's condition couldn't be "fixed," they must rely on taking pain pills forever. Fortunately, this is far from the truth.

Dr. Compton utilizes a multimodal treatment approach to managing pain, with goals of minimizing the need to rely on opioid pain medication (narcotics). He offers numerous minimally invasive procedural options, when appropriate, to restore your function and reduce your pain."

What People Say About Dr. Aaron Compton, MD
Reply
Was very patient and informative. Answered all my questions in a very ‘calming way’. I was nervous about discussing an epidural. Although at this time I don’t plan to have it done, if I were going to he would definitely be the doctor I’d go to.
