Dr. Kim's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kim "I strive the offer the best for my patients in the management of chronic pain, spasticity, and integrative medicine. With my group, we offer the cutting edge technology and advancements with minimal invasive spine procedures, implants for pain control, and evidence based integrative medicine. Please go to websites for our practices in center for interventional pain and ageless md mainline. I trained at University of Pennsylvania and was an assistant professor before I went into private practice. We are involved in clinical research, write chapters and textbooks, and active in the medical societies with lectures and policy at a national level. We are involved in international and national consensus panel for neurostimulation and intrathecal drug therapies. I have been listed as TOP Doctor by multiple groups in DE and PA in pain medicine and anesthesiology. My best awards are from my patients that comment that "I gave them my life back. Our practice is multidisciplinary with attempting to offer a comprehensive approach to spine and pain problems. As much as we offer the minimal invasive and interventional approach, we seek to find the cause of your pain and offer solutions outside of surgery. Integrative medicine approach is now part of our practice. My training continues as I am getting a masters in integrative medicine at University of South Florida and received advanced fellowship training at anti-aging and regenerative medical society. I am active in martial arts and triathlons as long as my wife allows me to train."

Dr. Kim Says:

Our practice tries to help everybody and sometimes we cannot help everybody. I try to be honest what is available and experimental. Over years, I have learn to be a better physician and understand that we are in difficulty situation with insurances and health care. We will not give up on trying to help patients as best we can. That is why we are active in clinical research and policy to help current and future patients.
