Dr. Vasilios Kountis, DO
I am a great believer in treating pain as early as it starts as I find we can prevent pain from progressing into a debilitating hindrance for many patients. Once a patient's pain has already become chronic, I always make sure the treatment is a multi-disciplinary plan, involving interventional and surgical techniques that treat the initial source of the pain along with the incorporation of physical rehabilitation and psychosocial therapies to help get the patient back to the quality of life they strive for.

Care Philosophy

As a spine & pain management physician, patients come to me after years of dealing with their pain and have minimal improvement of their symptoms after being seen by other physicians.  Without aggressive treatment, pain becomes chronic after a six month period.  As the source of pain becomes a chronic problem, it often starts to effect other aspects of ones health.

Limiting activity, restricting social engagements and the stress and barriers that severe pain imposes starts to change a patients' outlook on improvement and hope for a pain free future. There are actually documented physical and chemical changes that occur in a patient with chronic pain. Changes are seen in circulating cortisol levels, along with other neurotransmitters involved with sleep cycles and mood.

I understand that the social, emotional and psychological impacts of chronic pain start to play a role in the perception of your pain and thus start adding to the impact of pain in your daily life.

Dr Kountis is the only Doctor I've met who treated me like a human being. He doesn't give a run around and looked out for my wellbeing. Lucky for me, after getting misdiagnosed and treated he pinpointed the problem and alleviated my back pain! He is one of a kind!

I found him to be very knowledgeable comma experienced, kind, and very helpful. He did a procedure on my knee from torn meniscus and I have no further problems. He then did a procedure to my sacroiliac and from that point on I have had no back pain. So I would highly recommend anybody who's going through back pain joint pain torn meniscus I would recommend him very highly thank you.

Excellent Dr! Down to earth and focuses on procedures that can alleviate pain rather than masking them!
in SI, NY |
I just statred but he seems caring. I want pain management. My shoulder is excruciating. I dont think tramadol is working. I will give it time. Otherwise i would recommend him.
I have been a patient of Regional Orthopedics for a long time and never once was I disappointed. The office is beautiful and the staff is excellent. Prior to seeing Dr. Kountis, I was worked up by a young man by the name of Anthony. I suprised to see the professionalism and how knowledgeable he was in answering my questions. When Dr. Kountis came in, he spoke in such a warm calm manner and he took the time to not only assess me, but fully explained his assessment and treatment thoroughly.
