      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Velling's Care Philosophy

      A person with chronic pain should be able to receive an honest, thorough evaluation and medical opinion in order to be diagnosed correctly. You should be given a range of choices for treatment, from conservative to aggressive. I provide specialty treatment in the form of procedures to treat pain, from simple injections, to nerve ablations, to minor surgeries which can dramatically reduce pain, with the goal to help you get your life back.
