A Pain Medicine Legend joins us to discuss the past, present, and future of our field


In this week's very special episode of the Spine & Nerve podcast, Dr. Nicolas Karvelas and Dr. Brian Joves had the opportunity to speak with another one of the leaders and legends in the field of pain medicine and pain research, Dr. Timothy Deer.

Dr. Deer is one of the most recognizable names and faces in pain medicine. Amongst his many accolades, Dr. Deer is the President and CEO of The Center for Pain Relief, Inc., and Clinical Professor of Anesthesiology at West Virginia University. He is co-founder and chairman of the American Society of Pain and Neuroscience, President Emeritus of the West Virginia Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (WVSIPP) and past President of the International Neuromodulation Society (INS). Dr. Deer is a former member of the board of directors of American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) and has served as faculty, moderator and presenter on many important subjects at national and international meetings, and has authored or been involved in much of the clinical research that has pushed pain medicine forward over the past couple decades.

Some of the topics that the doctors dive into:
- How the past has shaped what we currently see as modern pain medicine?
- How does technology impact patient outcomes?
- Where is pain medicine headed in the future?
