Care Philosophy

In my clinic, I believe in treating each patient as whole. It is common to train my staff to "enrich the relationship, not the reward" when it comes to treating our patients. Understanding that chronic pain is a multifactorial condition with physical, psychological and sociological symptoms, I seek to devise a multi-modal treatment plan in addition to procedures and more conventional pain management modalities.Read more

Dr. Moeller-Bertram says...

Dr. Moeller-Bertram is our Medical Director, and joined Desert Clinic Pain Institute from Coastal Pain and Spinal Diagnostics in the San Diego area. Prior to going into private practice, Dr. Moeller-Bertram worked at the University of San Diego, where he held an appointment as Associate Clinical Professor of Anesthesiology and Psychiatry. He is double-board certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Management. After finishing his medical school in Hamburg, Germany and defending his doctoral thesis about the effects of oxidative stress, he moved to the USA for his clinical training. He completed his anesthesia residency at UCSD and was given the honor to serve as chief resident. He received his education in multi-disciplinary pain management, including intensive training in all invasive aspects of alleviating pain, at UC San Francisco, which ranks among the best pain departments in the world. Dr. Moeller-Bertram returned to San Diego 2005 as an assistant clinical professor and also enrolled in a masters program for clinical research. He joined the VA San Diego Healthcare System and established his pain clinic there serving the Veteran population. These humbling and rewarding years of serving Veterans profoundly impacted his career and shaped his research efforts. Besides keeping a busy practice, he conducted many experiments to better understand the effects of stress on pain perception. His areas of expertise include PTSD and fibromyalgia and he received funding and support from sources including the "Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research", the 'Center of Excellence for Stress and Mental Health" and industry leaders. During his years at UCSD and the VA, he served as the director for clinical pain research at UCSD, published numerous papers and book chapters and presented his work at many national and international conferences as guest lecturer or visiting professor. Dr. Moeller-Bertram now brings all of his experience to the Desert Clinic Pain Institute group and is excited for the opportunity to serve patients in the Coachella valley area. Clinical Research Publications by Dr. Tobias Moeller-Bertram
