Dr. Shapiro is a published author in the fields of interventional spine and musculoskeletal care, as well as integrative medicine.
“Many people have back pain and we know it can be debilitating,” Dr. Shapiro says. “There are so many treatment options that it can be confusing for patients to navigate the system and know what to do. The interventional spine subspecialty focuses on spine problems and pain with an emphasis on non-operative as well as interventional approaches to pain management and functional optimization."
Most of the procedures Dr. Shapiro performs involve targeted, image-guided injections for the spine, nerves, joints, and musculoskeletal system to treat pain and improve function.
