See what we’re all about


Our mission is to provide comprehensive, goal based, interventional pain management to reduce pain levels and restore functionality. We believe the most effective way to achieve this is by utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, creating an individualized treatment plan for each patient that addresses the physical, functional, and psychological aspects of chronic pain. It is our goal to provide the highest quality of care while enriching the community through education and compassion.


Our interventional procedure suite allows us to offer on-site treatments using fluoroscopy. Fluoroscopy is a radiologic technique that takes real time images of the body. The image is transmitted to a monitor so that the body part can be seen in detail. Spinal and joint injections are best performed using fluoroscopic guidance to properly target and place the needle (and to help avoid nerve injury or other injury).


About Luis Velazquez, MD

My philosophy is that I am much more than your pain doctor. My goal is that together, you and I push to improve every day to get you back to living the best years of your life.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at University of Miami, and then completed a Masters Degree in Biomedical Science at Barry University. The following year I began medical school at University of South Florida, and once complete, I elected to enter into an Anesthesiology residency at the University of Miami. I thoroughly enjoy the practice of anesthesiology and developed a great deal of pride in my practice. I worked as a trauma anesthesiologist in Miami at a private hospital, and then moved to Las Vegas to practice anesthesiology as well. I am married to an incredible woman, whom I met during my residency in Miami, and she is also a great anesthesiologist. Together we practiced in Las Vegas and found the city to offer a great new opportunity for us; an opportunity for us to completely transform our lives and contribute significantly more to our community during our lifetimes.

This opportunity was the practice of pain management, which I consider one of the most important, yet most poorly understood and mismanaged fields in medicine. I immediately moved to rededicate my life to the pursuit of excellence in treating pain. I accepted an ACGME-accredited interventional pain medicine position at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in California, and began to develop a deep understanding of the nature of chronic pain, which burdens us not only physically, but emotionally as well.
