Dr. Ira Fox has developed a worldwide reputation as an innovator, educator and leader in interventional pain medicine. He has dedicated more than 30 years to treating and alleviating chronic pain conditions.In 1996, he co-founded Anesthesia Pain Care Consultants (APCC) with Dr. Jay Lasner, the first South Florida anesthesia group specializing in the treatment of chronic pain. His goal has always been to provide long-term relief for individuals living with pain from injuries, accidents, cancer and chronic spine conditions such as failed neck and lumbar spine surgeries. Dr. Fox is continuously perfecting new procedures and techniques. Dr. Fox works closely with primary care physicians, specialists and surgeons to pursue the most accurate diagnosis. Each year, he assembles nearly 200 health care professionals for a day-long pain symposium. The conference features APCC's physicians and other thought leaders from throughout the country to provide insight and information on the latest studies and literature. Additionally, he educates and collaborates with physicians around the globe, including underserved third-world countries. He is also involved in clinical trials and has delivered presentations at the World Institute of Pain's Annual Meeting in Budapest, as well as performed live demonstrations at many conferences. He is chairman of the World Institute of Pain Committee on Project Development. He has also been chairman of the Advisory Board, honorary treasurer and is on the executive board since 2011. Dr. Fox has served as a trustee for the World Institute of Pain Foundation. He is the president of the World Society of Pain Clinicians and a lifetime member of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians. Dr. Fox holds the distinction of being the Inaugural Executive Examiner at the WIP & American Academy of Pain Medicine Ultrasonography (AAPMU) 1st Annual WAPMU International Congress. Dr. Fox and his colleagues at APCC are firmly committed to reducing or eliminating chronic pain. First, they determine the source of the pain and the best treatment plan. Whether it's using a conservative approach such as physical therapy or a more advanced interventional procedure such as spinal cord stimulation, APCC physicians strive to help patients function again, get back to work and live life to the fullest. APCC offers a wide array of interventional procedures such as stem cell therapy, which can be especially effective for patients suffering from joint and disc pain, and oxygen-ozone treatment for those who suffer from excruciating pain from bulging or herniated discs. They provide all types of minimally invasive techniques in treating pain, as well as medication management if necessary.
