Ron Boeding, MD

Board certified and trained at the University of Virginia's Anesthesiology Department of Pain Management, Dr. Boeding has been practicing interventional pain management for the past 5 years and performs injections on all areas of the body.

Dr. Boeding has special interest in the use of spinal cord stimulation for the treatment of intractable pains ranging from neuropathy due to diseases like diabetes to low back or neck pain after spine surgery and for chronic regional pain syndrome.  
 
His philosophy of care is that pain is a sign that something is wrong, and moreover, that current treatment approaches are not helping. The use of narcotic and non-narcotic pain medications as well as appropriate interventions can be individually considered for each patient and should be used as a means to buy time for the source of the pain to be identified and ultimately treated. Of course there are times that the source of the pain is well known and has been treated as well as possible and for those patients he believes that the use of medications and procedures then becomes an option to allow continued function.
