Bone & Joint is pleased to welcome fellowship trained interventional spine and pain management specialist, Jose Santos, MD, to its orthopedic and pain management team. Dr. Santos cares for people who are suffering from acute and chronic pain, and those who have been injured in the workplace.
As a board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation physician, Dr. Santos uses conservative and minimally invasive procedures to treat pain caused by spine and musculoskeletal injuries, orthopedic injuries and nerve conditions. He also helps his patients develop mindfulness as a pain management tool.
Dr. Santos is fellowship trained in the use of fluoroscopically-guided spinal injections for cervical and lumbar disorders, ultrasound-guided injections for the treatment of peripheral nerve and joint disorders, spinal cord stimulation for pain relief, intramuscular stimulation (dry needling), trigger-point injections, and the administration of Botox for spasticity and headaches. He also has a special interest in electrodiagnostic (EMG) testing.
“My goal is to improve each person’s quality of life,” said Dr. Santos. “I’m committed to caring for my patients using a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment. I believe in the body’s innate ability to heal itself and use the most conservative treatment methods possible to help people achieve an optimum level of function.”
Dr. Santos earned his medical degree from the University of the East, Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center in Quezon City, Philippines. He completed his family medicine residency at the University of Missouri-Kansas City in Kansas City, Missouri. Dr. Santo served as chief resident in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Miami, Jackson Memorial Hospital, in Miami, Florida. Dr. Santos completed fellowship training in interventional spine and pain management at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington.
